Freeport police say 46 year old Kevin Baker was found stabbed to death last night near his home but they don't know yet why he was killed.
Last night at around 9:30, a neighbor found Baker's body lying in this spot off the road along the 700 block of Winneshiek road. The neighbor called police, who says Baker was pronounced dead at the scene.
Freeport's Deputy Chief Robert Smith says the victim was stabbed once in the chest. Smith also believes Baker was hurt at different location from where he was found.
The victim's family is still absorbing the shock of his death. One of his nieces told me she has no idea how her uncle could end up dead. She says Baker was a father of three and a truck driver for most of his life.
