Man's Body Found in Apartment

The body of a man stabbed to death in his apartment was found Thursday by the building manager, authorities said.

The man, who was not identified pending notification of his relatives, was found about 10:30 a.m. in his apartment in the 7800 block of Baird Avenue by the manager, who then called police, Detective Rick Swanston of the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Investigators said neighbors saw two men enter the apartment with the victim at 11 p.m. and then heard arguing for a few hours. They saw the two men leave about 2 a.m., Swanston said.

The man was stabbed several times in the chest and stomach, Swanston said.
