LPD Identifies Homicide Victim

Tuesday, Lubbock Police identified the victim in Monday evening's disturbing discovery in north Lubbock. 

Police say he is 19-year-old Bradford McIver.  Authorities say McIver died of multiple stab wounds.

Friends found him dead inside his apartment at Indiana Village Apartments around 6:30 p.m. Monday.  They immediately called 911.

"We've haven't heard from him in about two days. We've been trying to call him, and we haven't been able to reach him. I knocked on the door, and he didn't answer and turned the knob and whenever I turned the knob, I saw him lying in the middle of the floor," the caller told the 911 operator.

Preliminary autopsy results list stab wounds as the cause of death.

McIver was a South Plains College student, and NewsChannel 11 found he'd written several articles for the school paper. Investigators tell us he's originally from Albany, Texas near Abilene.

Investigators were searching inside and outside his apartment Tuesday.  They tell NewsChannel 11 there are obvious signs of a struggle inside the apartment, furniture was overturned, but police say there are no signs of a break-in or robbery. Friends say the door was unlocked when they arrived.

On the outside, investigators say they've identified a possible blood trail, but authorities still need your help to identify a suspect in this case.

"If anyone was in that apartment complex anytime, probably starting Saturday up until the present time, if anyone remembers anything, any type of strange occurrence, strange noises, anything like that, give us a call. It may or may not be pertinent, but it may be," Lubbock Police Lieutenant Jon Caspell said. 

If you know anything that can help investigators with this case, give Crime Line a call at (806) 741-1000.

Investigators say the last time anyone reported seeing McIver was on Saturday. We've also discovered that's the last time he logged on to his My Space or Facebook ages on the Internet.
