A man identified as Jamil Hicks, 25, whose body was found Friday morning in his apartment at 208 Fox St., died of multiple stab wounds, Buffalo homicide detectives said.
Detective Sgt. Carl A. Lipinczyk and Detective Patrick McCarthy said they were checking the victim's background in an attempt to discover a motive and suspects.
Assistant Chief of Detectives Gregory Simonian said the body was discovered by a neighbor who had entered the house to "retrieve some things." He said Hicks appeared to have been dead for a while. He said investigators were trying to find out if anything had been taken from the apartment.
