A man who was found murdered over the weekend has been identified, and police on Thursday said he was stabbed to death in his Cobb County home.

Mr. Jerry L. Moore, 46, was found dead Sunday evening, but investigators said they still don’t know who killed him or why.

The investigation began around 6:40 p.m. when a neighbor found his body inside the home at 2808 Gracewood Drive in Marietta and called 911, according to Cobb County police.

“A female neighbor saw the door open and became curious,” Sgt. Pierce said. “She went over there and discovered the body inside.”

Mr. Moore had been stabbed multiple times with a sharp instrument, Sgt. Pierce said.

“The house appeared to be in disarray,” he said. “It was a very graphic crime scene.” There were signs of a physical struggle and blood splatter, he said.

It’s unclear how long he had been dead before he was found. Police declined to comment on whether the murder weapon was found and if there were any signs of forced entry.

Anyone with information about this homicide is asked to call Cobb County police at (770) 499-3945.
