Update June 17th: There is a little bit more yesterday on this case, here, but I must say the whole thing sounds really fishy. They are hiding something?
Update: A few more details on the possible “accident” are here in the local paper.
This story is just breaking so its unclear what is going on, but a thirty year old Hispanic worker is dead after supposedly bumping heads with another worker who promptly stabbed him in the neck. Hmmmm!
From AP: (Hat tip to a reader who keeps me informed from Garden City):
GARDEN CITY — Finney County officers are investigating the death of a Tyson Fresh Meats worker who was stabbed in the neck at the company’s Garden City plant.
Sheriff’s deputies were called to the plant Tuesday night. They found 30-year-old Cesar Muniz at the nurse’s station with a wound in the neck. He was taken to St. Catherine Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The Garden City Telegram reports that a preliminary investigation found that Muniz and a 34-year-old man who were working in the same area of the plant somehow bumped heads while working. The other man had a knife in his hand and Muniz was stabbed.
Finney County Sheriff Kevin Bascue says the investigation is continuing.
