Central Point police say victims and suspects in weekend deaths are from same family | Crime watch

Central Point police say everyone involved in this weekend’s fatal stabbing incident are all family members. So far no arrests have been made.

CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — The Central Point Police Department said today that all of the people involved in a weekend stabbing death are members of the same family.

Central Point Police Department (CPPD) Lt. Josh Abbott said police are interviewing more people today as part of the death investigation. He says no names have been released pending criminal charges filed by the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office.

Abbott says Saturday’s incident involved four adults from the same family who all knew each other, including a woman hospitalized in stable condition from blunt force trauma. He says the suspect in this trauma is different from the stabbing suspect in this case.

Abbott says two men were stabbed, killing one man and hospitalizing another in stable condition today. He says the fourth family member in the case was injured, but did not need to be hospitalized.

Abbott says no arrests have been made in the case, which involved a knife and may have involved alcohol in the 2200 block of New Haven Drive.

There does not appear to be any ongoing threat to the community.

The Jackson County Major Assault and Death Investigation Unit and the Oregon State Police Forensic Unit are supporting CPPD detectives in the investigation.
