Among the few details released were that the man is Hispanic with a large build, possibly in his 20's or 30's and he had been stabbed several times.
Not far from where detectives were investigating the murder is the Lake of Jersey Meadows subdivision, where residents Thursday were stunned.
"It's kind of scary. I would never expect that," said resident Jennifer Nguyen.
It's a small, quiet neighborhood full of families who now have concerns about what happened and say they're adapting to it.

It's not known if the man was killed here of if his body was simply left. The man was wearing a dark-colored shirt and dark pants.
