    usage of the verb - find

    Please correct the following sentence:

    When I walked into the room, I found him killed. (right?)

    or it should be : When I walked into the room, I found him dead.

    The first is probably acceptable, but the second is more natural.

    For the first, you could say: When I walked into the room, I found that he had been killed.
