A 27-year-old man from Archuleta County died Friday after being stabbed at his home early that morning, said Archuleta County Coroner Carl Macht.
The man, whose family has been notified, was flown to Mercy Regional Medical Center, but he died soon after, Macht said.
The Archuleta County Sheriffs Department has requested assistance from Pueblo County Law Enforcement to handle the ongoing investigation.
The investigation will be a joint effort, Macht said.
No weapon or suspect has been formally identified at this time.
An autopsy has not yet been completed, said Macht, who has called in a Denver-based pathologist to aid in the case.
Macht still is waiting for a toxicology report in order to understand any factors that may have contributed to the incident, he said.
A call to the Archuleta County Sheriffs Department was not returned Sunday.
