Investigators confirm that a stabbing and a fatal S-U-V fire in Waterloo early Friday are connected.

The stabbing occurred around 2:20 AM at a home in the 700 block of Burbank Avenue. Police said when officers arrived, they found a woman suffering from multiple non-life-threatening wounds, who was receiving care from a neighbor. She was transported a hospital for treatment.

The victim told police she was stabbed by a man while the two of them were in an S-U-V. Authorities confirm the same S-U-V was found burning a few blocks away near the intersection of Kimball Avenue and Park Lane, with a dead man inside.

Police have not released any names in either incident, both of which remain under investigation.
