Police launch homicide investigation after stabbed man dies

UPDATE: POLICE investigations into the death of a 32-year-old Toowoomba man who died yesterday as a result of a stab wound are continuing.

A number of people are being questioned in regards to the matter. Police are treating the death as a murder investigation.

At a media conference in Toowoomba this morning, regional crime coordinator for southern region Detective Inspector Darrin Shadlow said no-one had yet been charged over the stabbing incident, but police investigations were continuing.

"We have interviewed and spoken to a number of persons of interest in relation to the matter," he said.

"The investigations are ongoing and we do seek information from members of the public."

Det. Insp. Shadlow said police were unable to speak with the deceased before he died yesterday.

"Unfortunately, the victim had lost a lot of blood prior to arriving at the hospital and was subsequently in an induced coma up until he passed away," he said.

Police have been in contact with the deceased's family while carrying out the investigation.

Police hope to release the name of the victim this afternoon with consent of the family.
