PROSSER — A man is dead after showing up at a Prosser hospital with several stab wounds.
The Benton County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after the severely wounded man arrived at Prosser Memorial Health hospital at 11:53 p.m. Thursday, said Sgt. John Thompson. The man, whose name has yet to be released, died shortly after he arrived.
An autopsy is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, said Coroner Bill Leach.
