The Aurora Police Department is conducting a homicide investigation after a man was found stabbed in a home on Aurora’s near East Side early Saturday morning.
The Kane County Coroner’s Office today (Tuesday, Sept. 24) identified the man as 51-year-old Marvin Dean of Aurora.
Just before 5:15 a.m. Saturday (Sept. 21, 2019), Aurora’s 911 Center received a report of a person stabbed in the 600 block of Hinman Street.
Officers responded to the scene and found a man suffering from multiple stab wounds outside of a home. Aurora Fire Department paramedics attempted life-saving measures and rushed the man to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Aurora Police Department detectives responded to the scene and began interviewing potential witnesses, canvassing the neighborhood and investigating the specific circumstances of the incident.
Evidence technicians from the Police Department’s Evidence Unit also responded to the scene to identify and collect forensic evidence from the stabbing.
Preliminarily, investigators believe this is an isolated incident, and there is no threat to the community.
An autopsy was conducted on Monday (Sept. 23) at the Kane County morgue, and toxicology samples were collected at the time of the autopsy and sent to a forensic lab for analysis. The preliminary cause of death is listed as “Stab Wound of the Chest,” according to a Coroner’s Office news release.
