City man found stabbed to death inside his home

Published: Fri, January 29, 2010 @ 12:02 a.m.

The man had stab wounds to his chest, neck, back and face.


YOUNGSTOWN — City police are investigating the stabbing death of a South Side man in his home — the city’s second homicide this week.

Police were sent to a home in the 300 block of West Earle Avenue just after 11 a.m. Thursday. When officers arrived, they found a hysterical 24-year-old woman standing outside the home holding a baby and saying her boyfriend was inside lying on the floor covered in blood.

Officers found Lamont Brown, 33, resident at the home, dead. He had stab wounds to his chest, neck, back and face.

According to police, a couch and overturned coffee table in the room were also covered in blood.

Police spoke with Brown’s mother and girlfriend. Both women said they spoke to Brown on Wednesday. They said he was at ease and talking about going to work that evening.

The girlfriend told police she tried to call Brown early Thursday morning but got no response. She said she came to the Earle Avenue home and found the front door unlocked with Brown lying motionless on the floor. Police said Brown still had $13 in his pants pocket when he was found.

His death is the city’s fifth homicide this year and the second within a week.

Angeline Fimognari, 80, Sheridan Road, was found shot to death Saturday in the parking lot of St. Dominic Church on the South Side. She was shot in the head, and her purse was missing.

There was one homicide at this time last year.

"They said he was at ease and talking about going to work that evening."

Since 13 dollars was found in his pocket robbery wasn't the motive . Was he confronted for snitching ? A study should be done to see if mainstream society had contributed to this man's death .

Everyone in the city is not a criminal!!NOONE on this board knew him to say ANYTHING!!! You guys are making it seem as if he was not an innocent victim just like the elderly woman.Did you work with him?Did you speak with him?Did you attend school with him?Did you know him?

I knew Lamont personally and I have been a friend of his family for about 15 years. Lamont was a decent individual that loved his daughter. He had a quiet peaceful personality and I dare say that I never saw him angry or upset. He and I often discussed the myriad problematic issues that affect our great city and cause people to think negatively about Youngstown. We often discussed how he was just trying to be the best father that he could be. It is a shame that he had to succumb to the violence that is so often associated with our city.

i agree with you melody1101 its a shame that are family member is not being treat the same like the elderly women.. i think when a black person get killed they have to say they was a bad person and that they brought it on them selfs.. but they dont no the person and the person they were... so they need to shut there mouth and show some respect treat everyone the same..

Bigmomma not everyone thinks all black people murdered are criminals. The problem in Youngstown however is in most cases the victim and the perpetrator are black. It also appears that the black community hinders and/or refuses to help in finding the perpetrators of the crime. I understand the mistrust of the police but to sit by idly as many of your young men and women are being killed.
Also when the quadruple occurred it was constantly discussed in the paper as it should have been however the community has been silent therefore thats why it recently hasnt been discussed. Also the zero tolerance policy probably had a negative effect on apprehending the individuals involved in the quadruple. In my opinion this is because it further alienated the community and when Mayor Williams made comments about the victims being thugs that further hindered the investigation.

To the one who commented about taxes,You should really think before you speak or write anything.Me and my family new lamont ,he was agreat and wonderful person ,he nevered agrued with anyone ,his favorite saying if someone tried to argue with him was go-ahead with that and walked away.And to the one who said about being silent its not that its ,police feel they have no time they are to busy eating donuts and drinking coffee they never follow leads and the leads was right in thier face .

"they never follow leads and the leads was right in thier face"....

What leads? If you have information why don't you go to the police and pressure them?
This stabbing seems suspicious, seems like a argument took place and someone he knew stabbed him over something, wasn't a robbery or forced entry and nothing was stolen.

This appears to be a hate crime...someone hated to see him alive. It is very disturbing to see the rising violence and clearly shows there is a growing lack of respect for human life by some people today. Nothing this man did or may have had should ever have led to this outcome. Sad, so, so sad.
