Body Found At Weisser Park Avenue Identified

We’re learning more about the young man that was found dead behind a Fort Wayne home earlier this week.

The body of 18-year-old Deonta Tyrese Bonner was discovered on Tuesday morning behind a boarded-up home on Weisser Park Avenue near Colerick Street. An autopsy showed he died from a stab would to the chest and his death was ruled a homicide. 

Whether or not Bonner died in the yard or was dumped there after his death is yet to be determined. No weapons were found at the scene.
