    The scene at 164 North Elm St. in Torrington

    One person is dead after being stabbed inside a home in Torrington early Sunday morning and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled homicide to be the cause of death, according to police.

    Officers found 25-year-old David A. Vazquez, of 164 North Elm Street in Torrington, suffering from stab wounds at his home just after 3:30 a.m.

    Vazquez was transported to Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, where he died of his injuries, police said. He was then pronounced dead at 11:10 a.m.

    At this time, police say that this does not appear to be a random act and believe that the victim knew the suspect.

    Police have questioned people in connection with the murder and said they expect to make an arrest soon.

    The investigation is ongoing.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Torrington Police Det. James Crean at 860-489-2061.
