Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) -- Duluth police have ruled the suspicious death in Lincoln Park over the weekend a homicide.

An autopsy conducted by the Saint Louis County Medical Examiner's Office ruled 27 year old Bryan Alan Starnes died of stab wounds.

Starnes was the man authorities found at a residence in the 700 block of North 24th Avenue West Saturday afternoon.

This is the address where Duluth Police were called on March 9 regarding an unresponsive male, and a death investigation.

The Duluth Police Department is following up on several leads.

According to Lincoln Park neighbors, like Julie Peterson, while the stabbing is reason for concern, there are still good things happening in the area.

"The neighborhood has its challenges, and I am getting more and more nervous at times, but there are still lots of very wonderful, amazing people that are my neighbors," said Peterson.

There are no suspects in custody. Anyone with any information is asked to call 911.
