Two Men Found Stabbed In Front Of Car Wash

Glendora, CA -

(FOX 11 / CNS) Two men were found stabbed to death today in Glendora, authorities said.

The bodies were discovered around 2 a.m. in the area of Vermont Avenue and Route 66, according to the Glendora police watch commander. The names of the men were not immediately released.

Both men had been stabbed, said Deputy Don Walker of the Sheriff's Headquarters Bureau. Sheriff's homicide detectives were assisting the Glendora police in the investigation.

 

From Gigi Graciette:

Murder on Route 66

Right now police are operating under the theory that only three people know what happened at the Glendora Car Wash this morning and two of them are dead.

It was just before 2am when a man flagged down a passing police car on Route 66, just west of Vermont. He had heard screams coming from the car wash up the street, he told the Glendora Police Lieutenant, and had seen a man running away. He feared something bad had happened.

It had. Something really bad.

Police arrived to find two men dead. One lying by the curb appeared to have been trying to run away from his killer. The other, was found lying next to a wheelchair, thought to be his.

The coroner will make the official determination on how they died but from what police saw, it looks like both were stabbed to death.

And while their names haven't been released yet, everyone seems to know who they are. Two local homeless men known to seek shelter at the car wash after dark.

Neighbors even knew their first names; I won't repeat them until I know their family's have been properly notified. 'They weren't panhandlers and kept to themselves', one man tells me.

While another man, who tells me he's homeless and sometimes sleeps at the car wash too, thinks it was a stranger who killed his friends.

"I can't imagine thinking it was someone they knew"' he says. "I wouldn't be able to handle that."

If you have any information on this double homicide, please call the LA County Sheriff's Dept. Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500 or the Glendora Police Department at 626-914-8250
