Police Investigating Fifth Homicide of the Year

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Corpus Christi police are investigating the city's fifth homicide of the year after a 24-year old man was stabbed to death in Flour Bluff Tuesday night.

Police are still searching for the attacker.

The victim has since been identified as 24-year old Samuel Moore. Nearby residents said they did not hear anything and, quite frankly, are not surprised that something like this happened in their neighborhood.

"Had about a dozen calls already asking if I'm alright," said Daniel Baker, a nearby resident. "The guys over here said he came from the bar down the street."

Baker and his mother were fast asleep, unaware about the violence playing out right in front of their home at Waldron Road and Fawn Drive.

Police said they learned that Moore had been robbed earlier in the evening, but never called police. It was later in the night when Moore and his friend reportedly ran into the robbery suspect again as they walked to a nearby restaurant.

"He saw the person he believed robbed him, confronted him," said Officer Julie Garcia of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "A scuffle ensued. During the scuffle, the 24-year old man was stabbed in the chest."

Moore's friend took him to Bay Area Hospital where he died.

The suspect is described as a thin, white male between the ages of 35-45 years old. He stood about five-foot 11 to six feet tall, and was last seen wearing a light colored shirt and blue jeans.

If you have any information regarding this crime, please call the CCPD's homicide division at 361-886-2841, or Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477.
