NEW ORLEANS -- An 83-year-old New Orleans man was stabbed to death inside of an apartment Tuesday night in Mid-City.

The stabbing happened around 7 p.m. at a senior living apartment complex in the 3600 block of Tulane Avenue.

A family member went to Edward Richardson’s apartment and knocked on the door, but did not get a response.  The security guard and the family member opened the door to the apartment and found Richardson fatally stabbed multiple times to the body and called police.  

Managers of the apartment building said they do not restrict access to apartments, and there was no sign of forced entry into Richardson's.

He was pronounced dead on the scene.

The New Orleans Police Department hasn't released any information on a possible suspect or motive.

If you know anything that can help investigators, call Crimestoppers at 822-1111.
