"My neighbors had seen a white Mustang with a couple young men up the street and as they were coming around to park, it was going the wrong way up West Eagle Street," neighbor Bryan Ennis recalled.
Ennis said the victim did not appear to have been struck by the car.
"I didn't see any injuries that looked like he was hit by a car. But he had definitely been stabbed and looked like he had defensive wounds on his forearms," Ennis said.
The victim was taken to a local hospital where he died of his injuries at about 9 a.m. Wednesday, police said.
A bloody towel, a shoe and evidence markers were spotted in the road while detectives were talking to neighbors.
