The incident under investigation originally took place this past Tuesday on September 12th. Multiple reports state that City of Newburgh Police Officers were already on location at Montefiore St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital after attending to a separate incident. It was shortly there after that the same police officers found the stabbing victim outside of the hospital's emergency room.

Reports state that the police officers guided the victim into the hospital to have his injuries treated. A short time later officers were informed that the injuries the victim sustained proved too severe and the victim subsequently passed away.

Tracking Down the Crime Scene

As of right now, not much information has been released on the victim. What is known is that the victim was identified as a 37-year-old male. This is apparently due to the fact that efforts were still being made to inform the victim's next of kin.
