Medical examiner seeks help in identifying stabbing victim
The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office is seeking the public's help in identifying a man killed in a home invasion in Penn Hills on Wednesday.
Allegheny County Police said the deceased was one of three men who forced their way into a home on Edinberg Drive and struggled with residents. The homeowner fatally stabbed the man in the back, police said.
The man didn't have any identification on him, police said, and a check of his fingerprints yielded no results, according to an employee with the medical examiner's office.
He described the man as a black man in his 20s, between 5 feet 11 and 6 feet tall, weighing 168 pounds with a goatee, mustache and slight facial hair, and a short hair cut. He wore blue jeans with black rear pockets and black tennis shoes.
Anyone with information on his identity is asked to call the office at 412-350-4800.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
