A 30-year-old software engineer hailing from Telangana's Siddipet was found dead at his rented apartment in Arlington of Texas, in the US on Friday.
The body has been identified as Venkannagari Krishna Chaitanya. Chaitanya, who was working for Cognizant Technologies on a Southeast Airlines project, had traveled to US three years ago to work on a project.
His body was discovered after his landlord noticed that he had not come out of his room for a long time and alerted the local police about the same.
The police arrived at their house and broke open the door of Chaitanya's room, only to find lying dead on the bed.
A case has been registered and an investigation has been launched to probe the cause of his death.
