Investigators with the Aurora Police Department are focusing on the death of a man whose body was found on a bridge splattered with blood.

At about 4:55 p.m. on Wednesday, according to the APD, officers were dispatched to an area near 28th and Wheeling.

Callers said the man in question appeared to be dead, and when officers arrived, they found him to be unresponsive, presumably as a result of what are described as several visible wounds, apparently caused by stabbing.

He was quickly transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Crime-scene markers put in place by investigators were still on view yesterday.
At this point, the man's name has not been released, even though family members appear to have been informed.

Yesterday morning, a number of them were on the scene, with one woman telling a CBS4 crew that the victim was her son.
