Foul play was not involved in multiple stab wounds??? Perhaps some "preliminary" elaboration here?

I would assume this means the victim knows the attacker and it was not a random act or robbery.

Nothing to see here, move along. With no info on a suspect or an arrest, I expect a little more from you SPD. Unless of course this guy stabbed himself a bunch of times

Hi everyone — There is no suspect at large or foul play suspected.

It makes me sad and angry that you all feel like the police are hiding something from the community. Have more faith and trust in your law enforcement officers, they know what they are doing. If they say there is no imminent danger and threat, just accept that. Clearly they know more about what happened that perhaps does not need to be broadcast.

No suspect at large, no foul play sounds like self-inflicted.

That is exactly what I was thinking, Klassy.

Sadly,this is another result of the expansion of the "point". If there is anything in this city that works,it's without doubt the fire and police departments.
