SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Sioux Falls police say a bad reaction to narcotics may have caused a man to fatally stab an acquaintance at a house party.
Capt. Brian Larsen said Monday 27-year-old Alexander Rodriguez, of Sioux Falls, was stabbed early Sunday morning after an all-night party at a house rented by the suspect and his girlfriend. Larsen says the suspect became agitated after using drugs and stabbed Rodriguez with a large combat knife.
Police say the victim suffered a single stab wound to the chest and died a short time later. Larsen says besides marijuana, it’s not known what type of drugs were being used at the party.
