Authorities on Thursday publicly recognized a 58-year-old man who was fatally stabbed at his North Park house over Fourth of July weekend.

Patrol officers responding to a reported assault simply earlier than midnight Sunday discovered John Baquera affected by stab wounds to his chest at an condo within the 3800 block of Alabama Road, based on police. Baquera died on the scene, San Diego police Lt. Steve Shebloski stated.

The suspected assailant, Jonathan Robert Camp, 39, was gone when police arrived. He returned house about 4 a.m. Monday, and was arrested on suspicion of murdering Baquera.

Precisely what led to the deadly assault remained unclear Thursday, although Shebloski stated there apparently had “been an ongoing dispute in regard to the residing state of affairs between the suspect and the sufferer.”

Camp lived within the condo together with his father and Baquera, based on police.
