Investigators are not saying much about the case, only that it's a death investigation.

A mobile home, located on Prison Camp Road in Martin County, seemed to be a place of joy for a father, his fiance and their new baby girl.

Until early Wednesday morning, when deputies got the call to respond to a stabbing inside the home.

"It just bothers me. I just hate it. I hate it for the baby to really never know her daddy."

That woman, who didn't want to be identified, says she's the couple's landlord. She says they moved in back in October 2013.

"He was always nice and treated me well. He was in between jobs and he was planning for he and this lady to get married. They had a beautiful little baby."

The deceased, Jason Donaldson, has been brought in for an autopsy to determine the manner in which he died, according to the Medical Examiner's Office.

Deputies say it was a fatal stab wound that took his life. The SBI is investigating this case with Martin County.
