Cumberland County Sheriff’s homicide detectives believe 28-year old German Torres-Jalicia can help solve the stabbing death of 35-year old Gabriel Cordoba-Reyes in Spring Lake, according to a department news release.
Reyes, 35, of Romie Street was fatally stabbed Saturday night at around 8:30 p.m., the Sheriff's Office said.
Investigators went to Reyes’ home after receiving a 911 call for help. When they arrived on scene, Reyes was found lying on the living room floor.
Reyes’ assailant is believed to be driving the victim’s vehicle, a red 2002 Nissan Frontier, four-door pickup truck with extended cab, the release says. The truck has a chrome toolbox in the bed which has no tailgate. The license tag is North Carolina YXA 9249.
