Police investigating mysterious stabbing death

Police are investigating the stabbing death of a 44-year-old man.

The victim has been identified as Victor "Todd" Howell. The Oregon State Medical Examiner has determined that he died of a stab wound.

Howell died after arriving by a private car at Adventist Medical Center with a stab wound on Sunday. Detectives served a search warrant early Monday morning at 14630 Southeast Caruthers Street in connection with the investigation. They believe that it is the location of the stabbing.

East Precinct officers responded to the hospital at 9:11 a.m. on April 6. After they arrived, the officers learned that the man died after medical staff was unable to save him.

Homicide detectives were called to the hospital and began a death investigation.

Police are asking that anyone with information call the police non-emergency line at (503) 823-3333.
