ORIGINAL POST, AUG. 30, 9:10 A.M.: Anaheim Police received an anonymous call shortly after midnight today about a possible burglary in progress in the 800 block of North Zeyn Street near Anaheim Boulevard.

Officers arrived shortly thereafter, but they did not find a burglar.

They found a dead man.

The body of the unidentified man lying in the east alley had sustained multiple stab wounds, according to police, who never did find any signs of a burglary.

Several vehicles investigators believe may be related to the fatal stabbing were towed for crime analysis. Meanwhile, anyone with information about what went down is asked to call Anaheim Police at 714.765.1900.

UPDATE, AUG. 31, 9:40 A.M.: Anaheim Police have not yet identified the man stabbed in an alley off North Zeyn Street early Thursday, but a suspect has been named: 37-year-old Joseph Robert Suess.

The transient was booked on suspicion of murder late Thursday afternoon, according to Anaheim Police.

Court records show a man with the same name and birth date pleaded guilty to felony kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon and attempted robbery charges in 1994, a felony assault with a deadly weapon charge in 2001, a felony possession of a controlled substance charge in 2006 and many misdemeanors over the years, reports the Orange County Register.

what a shame for anyone who didn't know Mikel A.Williams (my husband)... if you had known him, you would understand the comment made by The Refried Mexican... Mikel was my husband, and I miss him so much, I can barely type this...

Joseph Suess repeatedly stabbed my husband?  how could ANYONE  do that?  to another human being... I am sorry, but I am agreeing with the refried Mexican on this one.... HOW MANY CHANCES ARE THEY GOING TO GIVE THIS GUY?  WITH LITTLE OR NO CONSEQUENCES..... I feel for his family, but ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
