Baton Rouge Police are investigating the city’s latest homicide that happened on March 7, 2022 around 6:30pm on N. 17th St.
Officers responded to the Capital Area Alliance for the Homeless for a stabbing. Once there though, officers were told a 55-yr-old man tried to kill himself by stabbing himself in the back of the neck. However, officials found several fatal stab wounds on the back of the man’s neck from about an hour prior to the call for help.
Police said the complainant’s story was not making sense, which is why he was detained for questioning.
