Suspect in Fatal Tempe Stabbing Busted in Mesa
The man police say fatally stabbed Tempe resident Fred U. Bustamante was arrested yesterday in Mesa, the Tempe Police Department announced last night.
The suspect, 60-year-old Gordon Benson, was arrested in Mesa about 6:15 p.m. yesterday, Tempe Sergeant Steve Carbajal says.
Police haven't released a lot of information about the Saturday morning stabbing other than Bustamante was stabbed at his home on Apache Boulevard east of McClintock Drive.
It's unclear if the two men knew each other, or what motive Benson would have to kill Bustamante. Carbajal has not released any details of the stabbing and says none will released until later today.
