Name of Great Falls stabbing victim released


GREAT FALLS, Mont. - Cascade County authorities have released the name of a 41-year-old Great Falls-area man who was found dead in his residence on Sunday.

Sheriff Bob Edwards said Wednesday that Steven Fletcher was apparently stabbed to death. His death was initially reported as a suicide on Sunday evening, but investigators said the evidence led them to declare it a homicide investigation.

Edwards says a person of interest is jailed on unrelated charges and officials do not believe there is any threat to the community.
