MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Muncie police say they’re investigating the death of a 29-year-old man as a suspected homicide.
Delaware County Coroner Scott Hahn says Hector Cedillo Jr. died Thursday from injuries he suffered in an incident on Oct. 16.
Muncie police Sgt. Mike Engle tells The (Muncie) Star Press that the investigation involves a possible stabbing but would not comment further.
Hahn says an autopsy was scheduled for Friday but results wouldn’t be available until Monday.
The coroner says details of the incident are “sketchy.” He says Cedillo underwent surgery to repair a stabbing wound to the heart.
Cedillo is a registered sex offender who graduated from a local school in May with a welding degree.
