Police are investigating after a man was found dead Saturday morning.
Neighbors were surprised to learn that James McCabe, 65, who lived on the second floor of the apartment building at 228 Main St. was found unconscious from an apparent assault.
“It’s just crazy,” said Mark Knowlton.
“We didn’t hear a thing…next thing you know, they say the guy upstairs had gotten stabbed through the eye,” said Myron Lohman.
Police confirmed it was a homicide, and said they spoke with a person of interest in the case. However, investigators released few details about what led to McCabe’s death.
The crime stunned neighbors, who claim it’s a quiet area.
“It’s a very quiet building, and there’s never really been any incidents here. To the people in the building, it’s very shocking,” said Lohman.
“When it’s this close to home, it’s weird,” said Knowlton.
