Authorities in eastern Pennsylvania are trying to find out who killed a man who was found stabbed to death in the backyard of a Bethlehem home.

Officials say residents of the home discovered the body of 24-year-old Ezequial De Jesus III, of Allentown, at about 1:30 a.m. Thursday. According to a search warrant inventory, the residents said they heard a cell phone ringing and found a phone in a charger plugged into an outlet on their rear patio and then found De Jesus' body near their patio.

The victim's sister says De Jesus had two young sons and his fiancee is expecting a third boy in February. She says he went to the home to visit a friend and watch Game 6 of the World Series.
