A man who was found face down in St. James Park and died from at least one stab wound became San Jose's 10th homicide victim of the year, following a homicide less than 48 hours earlier.

A groundskeeper found the body Wednesday on North Second and East St. John streets near the park just before 3 a.m. San Jose Police Sgt. Heather Randol said she's hoping some witnesses who may have seen a fight will come forward. The man was stabbed once in the stomach.

Wednesday's stabbing follows on the heels of a homicide reported on Monday about 9:39 p.m. in the 5100 block of Eppling Lane. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said they received a 911 call around 9:30 p.m. from someone who entered the home and found the wounded victim unconscious.

It’s not clear if that person who called 911 was a relative, roommate or someone else. we did speak with a neighbor this morning: didn't want to be identified: but did tell police he thought "something was going on in that place."

Police say the home might be a marijuana grow house. An officer on the scene told NBC Bay Area he heard marijuana was found inside, but a police spokesperson would not confirm that.
