The body found behind Vanguard Church near Austin Bluffs Parkway and Academy Boulevard early Sunday has been identified as 25-year-old Carlos Eduardo Zuasnabar, according to Colorado Springs police.

Police said Zuasnabar was stabbed to death.

His body was discovered in an alley on the northeast end of the church’s parking lot just after 5 a.m. Sunday, and congregants were greeted by a parking lot full of police when they arrived for services.

Police have released few other details about the death except to say they have not identified any suspects.

The death is the 27th homicide of the year in Colorado Springs. This time last year, there had been 19 homicides in the city.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
