Police in the US are investigating the death of a man in a house burglary.
The man, who was found dead in his garage, is understood to have been stabbed multiple times.
The New York Post said the victim had been locked in his house with a folding door lock when he went to retrieve his tools.
“He had locked the door behind him and then left to go out for a beer,” a neighbour told the paper.
“I got up the next morning and saw him lying there, his head on the ground, covered in blood.”
It was like something out of a horror movie.
“Police said they were not treating the incident as a murder investigation.”
We are not investigating this as a homicide.
We are trying to determine exactly what happened,” Detective Sergeant Michael Dominguez told the Post.”
At this point, we have not determined what happened, but the victim’s family has been notified.
“Neighbours said the man, whose name was not released, was the owner of the home in the city’s Harlem neighbourhood.
The building has two floors and a garage.
