BRADENTON -- Bradenton police today were investigating the stabbing death of a 32-year-old man.
Clarence Gaskin was found stabbed to death about 1:15 a.m. Saturday in a yard of a residence in the 2200 block of 14th Avenue East. Gaskin lived a block away, in the 2200 block of 13th Avenue East, police said.
The man who found Gaskin's body in his yard waited until about 5 a.m. to call police because he had assumed that Gaskin was asleep, according to police.
Other details were not immediately available.
