January 27, 2014 - 10:45 AM

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - Police in South Florida say they are investigating the death of a Canadian tourist whose body was found on a sidewalk.

Hollywood police spokesman Lt. Osvaldo Perez says they received a report early Sunday morning about a body along Jefferson Street, just east of Federal Highway.

He says the man had been stabbed and the death has been ruled a homicide.

The victim has been identified as 58-year-old Domenico Perruccio.

Perez says police have notified his family and Canadian consulate officials.

Perruccio's hometown was not immediately known.

Local media reports quoted neighbours as saying Perruccio was waiting for his wife to arrive because the couple were supposed to leave on a cruise on Monday.
