NEW ORLEANS - Police say they don't know why someone stabbed an 83-year-old man to death in his apartment at a senior housing development in mid-city New Orleans.

Edward Richardson was one of two people killed in the New Orleans in the first 24 hours of the new year.

The other was 28-year-old Antonio Llovet, a college student and waiter. His parents found his body about 9:10 a.m. in the double they rent to him. He had been shot in the head.

Police say Richardson's body was found about 7 p.m., when he didn't answer a family member's knock. A security guard was called to open the apartment at The Terraces.

The management company says there don't appear to have been any security breaches or forced entry.
