The teen had been questioned in the death of Lamar D. House, 31, of the 0-99 block of North Ohio Street on the city's east side.

Officers were called at 3:45 a.m. Tuesday to House's residence when they found him, and the teen, inside a bedroom. House was unconscious, not breathing and being assisted by paramedics. He was taken a hospital, where doctors found a puncture wound to the left side of his chest that was "consistent" with a stabbing, police said. He died at 4:40 a.m.

Authorities investigated and determined that the two had an argument that turned physical and House died after he was stabbed with the sharp end of a plastic comb, which pierced his heart and caused internal bleeding.

The teen was released late Wednesday, police said.

Anyone with information about the case is urged to call Aurora police at (630) 256-5500.
