Now, the Wheat Ridge Police Department has identified the victim as Howard Benjamin Adler, who celebrated his 26th birthday just two weeks ago. We've also got more details about the killing.

Adler, who lived on Miller Street, where the attack took place, suffered multiple stab wounds, which came as a result of an ambush according to WRPD spokesman Lieutenant Wade Hammond. He added that Fischer and Adler were known to each other but not intimates; according to the Denver Post, the main connection was between Fischer and Adler's girlfriend.

As for Adler, a neighbor told CBS4, "It's a drag because he was a cool guy.... He had a kid, he liked doing stuff outside, he had a dragster. Just an overall good person."

Look below to see a CBS4 report, followed by our previous coverage.

Don't be a douche, @Juan_Leg. He was a great guy, with a family and friends who loved him very much. He did not deserve this at all.
