A 62-year-old man was found stabbed to death early Sunday in the Gresham neighborhood on the South Side.

Robert L. Cox was found about 12:40 a.m. lying facedown in an alley in the 8500 block of South Peoria. He had suffered stab wounds to the head and neck, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
