PASCO -- Pasco police launched a murder investigation at a mobile home park on the city's east side Tuesday night.

Authorities tell Action News one man was killed in the front yard of his home at the Sundance Mobile Home Park on Elm Street in Pasco around 7p.m.

Investigators say it appears to be a dispute between roommates that escalated when one man stabbed another. That suspect is identified as Joseph W. Hart, 27, and is in jail on suspicion of second degree murder.

The victim is identified as Roger Lincoln, 53. The Franklin County Coroner's office is looking for Lincoln's next of kin. If you can help, please contact their office.

One neighbor reportedly witnessed the entire incident and has been cooperating with police.

Officers say they are still piecing together what happened, so there's no word yet on a motive.
