Investigators said officers found Heath when they responded to a call about a possible fight.
"To hear someone stabbed to death, I mean, it just doesn't make sense," neighbor Demetrius Carnes told WCPO reporter Bryce Anslinger. "I'm from Cincinnati so it's not surprising, but it's still surprising, you know what I mean? Just senseless violence all the time."
