Honduran man fatally stabbed

A Honduran man who moved to Jackson about a month ago was stabbed to death early Sunday morning by a childhood friend at their north Jackson home, witnesses told police.

A pool of blood had dried on a green lawn chair Sunday evening. A trail of blood looped around the driveway at 5642 Brentwood Drive, ending near the home’s front yard.

Luis Torres, who was about 23, died about 3:30 a.m. after he was stabbed in the chest, Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart said.
Torres was found lying in the driveway.

He shared the home with six childhood friends from Choloma Cortes, Honduras, said Louis Muro, of Jackson, who met Torres a couple of times. Muro said he interpreted witness statements for Jackson police.
