Man fatally stabbed in Chillum home

A Chillum man was found stabbed to death inside his home Saturday morning in a case that appears to be a genuine mystery, authorities and law enforcement sources said.

Just before 10:30 a.m., police were called to a residence in the 5700 block of Cypress Creek Drive to check on the welfare of a person who lived there. When they arrived, they found 58-year-old Ansel Donovan Whitelocke dead inside from multiple stab wounds, authorities and law enforcement sources said.

Sgt. Michelle Reedy, a Prince George's County police department spokeswoman, said the case "does not appear to be random," but she declined to provide any more details.

Investigators are still working to identify suspects and a motive in the slaying, but as yet have few leads, authorities and sources said. Whitelocke's wife was apparently out of the country, and there were no signs of forced entry into his residence, sources said.

The slaying was the first in Prince George's this year. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Prince George's County Police Department's Homicide Unit at (301) 772-4925.

Well, he was stabbed in his own home. Unless there were signs of forced entry, I suspect he knew the killer. Terrible tragedy.
