BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Investigators say a man found dead inside a burning home in Alabama last month was killed in a stabbing.

Birmingham Police say an autopsy on 33-year-old Christopher Diltz found several stab wounds and that he was not killed by the Sept. 16 fire at a Birmingham home.

Firefighters found Diltz’s body after putting out the fire. Police say they have little information about who wanted Diltz dead or the fire and are asking for tips.
