    Part of Keney Park in Hartford is taped off and closed as police investigate the death of a man in his 20s who was found with several stab wounds Wednesday morning.

    Two park workers found the man’s body around 10 a.m. near a bridge in a marshy area of the park, police said.

    The victim had been stabbed in the face and neck several times, according to police, and they believe the homicide happened overnight.

    "He's suffering from several puncture wounds to the face, neck and possibly more," Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley. 

    Around half a dozen police cars responded to the scene, which is near the pond house, and they are hoping surveillance cameras will have caught something. 

    This has been the 19th homicide of the year in Hartford.
