A Suspect Apprehended On Suspicion Of Deadly Stabbing at Homeless Camp

Prosecutors detained a man Friday who they say wounded another man to death during a quarrel over vandalism at a Long Beach homeless encampment previous month, Authorities said.

James Earl Mays, 53-Year-old, described as homeless, was detained shortly after 11 a.m. and charged on suspicion of homicide, as per the Long Beach Police Department.

He’s arrested for fatally wounding Anthony Durr, 41-year-old, of Long Beach about 5:35 a.m. on September 7 at a homeless encampment along the 91 Freeway, on the east side of Long Beach Boulevard, police deputies said. The victim fled from the stabbing scene and fainted outside a home around the turn of the 200 block of East Artesia Boulevard, where he was proclaimed dead.

A post-mortem determined Anthony Durr died from “multiple sharp force injuries,” and the loss was ruled a homicide, Los Angeles County Department reports show.

Based on their investigation, investigators believe Mays and Durr were known to each other,” police deputies said in a statement.

Mays dared Durr about vandalism which had just transpired,” as per the statement. “During the dispute, Mays struck Durr with an edged weapon which ended in Durr’s death.”

Investigators demanded to present their case to prosecutors next week, Authorities said.

Meanwhile, bail for James was set at $2 million pending his primary court appearance.
