A body identified as that of Woodland Hills dentist Neil J. DiCapua was discovered Monday morning in DiCapua's home in the 20300 block of Vose Street in Canoga Park. DiCapua was apparently slain, Los Angeles police said.
DiCapua, 49, lived alone and was last reported alive about 7 p.m. Friday, when he spoke to a friend on the telephone, said Police Lt. William J. Gaida.
Two friends went to DiCapua's home when he did not show up at his office. The two were uncertain of the man's identity because of facial wounds, Gaida said.
