Investigators examined the scene into the night, taping off a section of the camp and marking off pieces of potential evidence.

“It happened near the steps,” a woman who was staying in the camp said. She indicated the victim was a man in his 20’s, and that he visited the camp on the weekends to bring food.

Police are seeking a man described as 5’10 to 6’ tall wearing a light colored sweatshirt. He was last seen fleeing east on foot. So far no motive in the case has been mentioned.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to contact the Stockton Police Department or Crime Stoppers at (209) 946-0600 where callers can remain anonymous.
