Fatal Stabbing Leaves Rancho Bernardo Community in Shock
A frightening incident occurred on Sunday night in a quiet Rancho Bernardo neighbourhood when a 61-year-old man was fatally stabbed inside his own house. After being taken into custody, the suspect—who has been identified as the victim’s 25-year-old stepson—is now being charged with murder.
When emergency personnel arrived at the scene of the distress call in the 12000 block of Caminito Campana, they found Michael Johnson suffering from multiple stab wounds. At 6:54 p.m., despite their best efforts, Johnson passed away from his wounds and was declared dead at the scene. Pablo Johnson, the suspect, lived with the victim and was apprehended without any problems.
This tragic event is presently the subject of a comprehensive investigation by the San Diego Police Homicide Detectives. According to the police, it was a sad case of domestic violence turning into murder. An intense argument that went out of control seems to have been the driving force behind the fatal stabbing.
The quiet, usually peaceful Rancho Bernardo neighbourhood has been shocked by this disturbing act of domestic abuse. Residents of this quiet neighbourhood have expressed shock and deep sadness over this tragic incident.
Pablo Johnson is being held at the San Diego County Jail on a single murder charge. In this case, law enforcement is not actively looking for any other suspects.
