Investigators said a man stabbed to death at a house party in Highland early Saturday morning was a U.S. Marine who just recently returned from service in Iraq.20-year-old Anthony Vargas was killed after a fight broke out at the home on Calle Del Rio Street just after 3:30 in the morning.

When sheriff's deputies arrived at the house they found Vargas laid out in the front yard with several stab wounds to his upper body. He later died at Loma Linda Medical Center.

Officers said Vargas was only going to be home for a short while and was going to be deployed to Afghanistan.

Investigators have not made any arrests but said the suspects fled the scene in two vehicles; a black Toyota Sequoia SUV with tinted windows and a silver Acura Integra with a smashed windshield and a broken side window.
