11 News is learning more about a man found dead overnight in Pear Park, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions about how he died.

The Mesa County Coroner has identified the man as the victim of a stabbing last week.

The coroner says 32–year–old Douglas Bennett was found dead at a home in the 2900 block of D Road just after 2:30am Tuesday.

Bennett was recently released from the hospital after he was treated for a stab wound.

Investigators say the stabbing happened Friday night when Bennett got in a fight with a man he met at a bar.

58–year–old Mack Sadler was arrested for that stabbing. He's behind bars in the Mesa County Jail on a $25,000 bond.

The coroner has not said if Bennett died from that stab wound or something else and says those questions should be answered after more testing.

    It's pretty hard for an untrained fighter to kill a man with his bare hands! Whats with the knife? And why so many stabbings in that area?
