NLV Police Find Vehicle in Stabbing Death

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) -- North Las Vegas police have found a vehicle they were looking for after a 47-year-old man was found with fatal stab wounds inside his North Las Vegas home.

It's a white 2006 Dodge Sprinter cargo van.

But police spokeswoman Chrissie Coon said Friday that investigators still don't know who they're looking for in the 3 a.m. Thursday attack at a home on Haddock Avenue. That's not far from North Las Vegas Boulevard and Carey Avenue.

The Clark County coroner hasn't made the dead man's name public.

Coon says it appears the slaying happened inside the house, and investigators haven't ruled out the possibility that there was more than one attacker.
