Cops found him with wounds in the lower back. His sister reveals he was stabbed three times. 

‘He was stabbed three times in his back and one hit his artery. He bled out. We have no idea who might have wanted to do this. No idea,’ 32-year-old Tiffany Tucker said to the New York Daily News. 

Heartbroken family and friends gathered to the apartment on Wednesday evening for a candlelight vigil, where he was described as a ‘good guy’.

He is survived by his fiancée and two children aged 10 and 16.  

‘He was hardworking and a good man. He loved his kids and his family,’ Tucker said on her brother.
