Martin’s family told police that they searched his apartment, but he wasn’t there.
When officers executed a search warrant at the apartment Wednesday, they found Martin, 38, dead.
Investigators said Martin was shot and his body hidden in the apartment. They did not say how long Martin was dead before his body was found.
Officers were asking for help locating Anthony Otis Simpson, who was the last person seen with Martin. Simpson was convicted of murder in California and wanted for a parole violation.
Officers said they consider Simpson armed and dangerous.

Martin’s neighbors said he moved to Newport a couple of months ago from Lexington and kept to himself.
Anyone with information on Simpson’s whereabouts are asked to call police.
