The sheriff's office has ruled the discovery of a stabbed man in a bathtub Friday as a suicide and identified the victim as 50-year-old Patrick Cifor.
The autopsy was conducted Monday morning, Contra Costa Sheriff's Office spokesman Jimmy Lee said. The cause of death was listed as "stab wound of heart," Lee said. There was also a wound to the throat.
Cifor's girlfriend found him dead in the bathtub Friday afternoon, Feb. 8, in an apartment in the 2500 block of Oak Road in unincorporated Walnut Creek.
