Investigation into fatal stabbing continues

Tribune staff report

South Lake Tahoe police continue to interview potential witnesses in the stabbing death of a man earlier this month.

Lt. Brian Williams said Tuesday that there are dozens of potential witnesses from surrounding hotel rooms and residences who may be able to provide information about the fight that led to the death of 28-year-old South Shore resident Julian Salvador Acevedo.

Williams said many people in the area likely heard, and some may have seen, the incident that led to Acevedo’s death.

Acevedo died after being stabbed in the side during a fight near the eastern intersection of Pioneer Trail and Lake Tahoe Boulevard in South Lake Tahoe about 3:30 a.m. July 20, according to police.

The suspect is described as a white man in his mid-20s who is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and has an average build.
