Everett man dead after early-morning stabbing
An Everett man was found fatally stabbed early this morning at a residence near the intersection of Chelsea and Ferry streets, according to the Middlesex district attorney’s office.
Everett police responding to a 1:19 a.m. call found Louis Barbosa, 29, suffering from multiple stab wounds at 194 Chelsea St., the office of District Attorney Gerry Leone said in a statement.
Barbosa was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
State Police assigned to the district attorney’s office are assisting Everett police in the investigation, but no arrests have been made, the statement said.
Neighbors interviewed on Chelsea Street today described a grisly scene, with a great deal of blood visible on the sidewalk. No blood was visible by this afternoon.
“I went outside and I saw the young man,” said a neighbor who lives across the street and asked that her name be withheld to protect her safety. “His throat was sliced.” She made a gesture across her neck with her hand.
The woman said she believed a party may have been going on in an upstairs apartment in the Chelsea Street building, a two-story structure with vinyl siding.
She said there appeared to be a large number of people in an upstairs apartment when a commotion outside attracted her family’s attention early this morning. She said she did not hear any loud music or other noise coming from inside, however.
“All I heard was the bumping and the thumping,” she said, explaining that she saw the injured man knocking on a door. “He was trying to bang in to get in, and no one would let him in.”
The woman said the scene upset her deeply.
“I cried. This is somebody’s son,” she said.
