You live to be 69, you're probably thinking you're not going to die by a vicious stabbing.
But Joesph Leroy Davis, 69, went out that way in what looks to have been a burglary on the north side early Tuesday morning.
Police were called to the scene after witnesses described "a short black female carrying a duffel bag" leaving Davis' home in the 8600 block of Sunmore Court about 2 a.m. About an hour and a half later, after getting no response from inside the house police discovered the victim dead from multiple stab wounds.
