The Fayette County Coroner's Office released a cause of death for the Lexington man found dead Saturday in his home on Elsmere Park.
Doug Saylor, 66, died from "multiple sharp-force injuries," deputy coroner John McCarty said in a news release. No other details were provided.
The coroner's office did not release a cause of death when they identified Saylor on Saturday evening. However, his brother, Manchester Mayor George Saylor, said the family thought Doug Saylor had been stabbed with a kitchen knife.
Neighbors who went to his house to check on him found him lying on the blood-stained floor of his kitchen Saturday morning. Possible murder weapons were found at the scene, the coroner has said.
