LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) – It may take several weeks before any arrests are made in the fatal stabbing of a 35-year-old Henderson man on Monday at the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
Metro Police spokesman Bill Cassell told News 3 today that the department’s investigation is ongoing and will likely be forwarded to the Clark County district attorney’s office.
“We are also awaiting the Clark County coroner’s report and toxicology tests and that often takes several weeks,” Cassell said.
Police say Michael Vincent Favazza was stabbed to death at Lake Mead after a fight erupted while he was camping with friends.
Coroner officials say Favazza died after the fight, which police say happened about 9 p.m. Monday in a desolate area off Northshore Road.
Cassell told the Las Vegas Sun that three friends were camping when an argument broke out between Favazza and the female. The other man attempted to intervene, and the men ended up getting into an altercation.
That's when police say Favazza was stabbed with a knife.
