It's the second murder case in less than five days, in the same county.

Police are investigating the second murder since Saturday in Leslie County. A man was found dead in the Mozelle community off Highway 421.

Police say they are still canvassing the area, questioning those in the community. In the meantime, family members say it is hard to deal with this loss.

Family and friends gather outside this mobile home on Highway 421, a community shaken.

"I was just shocked, I didn't really didn't know what to think. I still don't know what to think."

Family members say early this morning the body of 21 year old Chad Muncy was discovered by his mother. They say he was stabbed to death.

"He was 21 years old, he never bothered nobody and somebody just comes and stabs him in the back and leaves him," said Jennifer Muncy, Chad's sister.

"At this time it'd be preliminary to speculate on the exact cause of death or anything like that, until we get an autopsy done, until we figure out more about the investigation, we'd really be premature to speculate about what happened exactly," said Captain Scott Miller, with Kentucky State Police.

While police continue to investigate, his sister says she does not understand why anyone would want to do this to her brother.

"He was my only brother, it's just the two of us, yeah we was just really close, yeah I've lived with him. Yeah we was close," she said.

"He was fun. I mean, he was just chad, you'd just have to know him. He was just a good person, a good spirit," said Joshua Muncy, Chad's cousin.

He says he and his family will not rest until they find who is responsible.

"It's just a tragedy man, a tragedy," he said.

Police say an autopsy will be performed either tonight or tomorrow morning. They say if anyone in the community has any information in this case, to contact Kentucky State Police. They also say at this point, it is too early to tell if this murder is connected to the one from over the weekend.

    That is the most rudest thing in the world. His family and friends are going threw a really hard time, and all you people care about was when he last longed on to his myspace account, and say something bout drugs...seriously you should be sending prayers to his family, and friends!!!
