Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the stabbing death of a man.  The incident occurred shortly before 4:00 P.M. on Saturday, January 31, 2015, in the 38000 block of San Francisquito Canyon Road, Palmdale.

The victim was identified as Joshua Sutter, a 36-year-old male, who lived at the location with the suspect, identified as Ricardo Medina, also a 36-year-old male. 

That afternoon, the victim and the suspect became involved in an argument, which turned into a physical altercation.  Suspect Medina retreated to his bedroom with his girlfriend, but Victim Sutter followed them and forced the door open.  Suspect Medina stabbed Victim Sutter once in the abdomen with a sword kept next to the bedroom door. 

Suspect Medina called 9-1-1, remained at the location and was later interviewed by Homicide Bureau detectives.  He was booked for Murder at Palmdale Sheriff’s Station, where he is being held in lieu of one million dollars bail.
