SAN DIEGO – Officers with the San Diego Police Department arrived at John F. Kennedy Park on the evening of April 8th after receiving reports of a fight, but no one was there when they arrived.
At around the same time, two men arrived at a local hospital with “sharp force injuries.” One of the two men, 19-year-old Orlando Montoya, died as a result of his injuries. The investigation confirmed that both men were connected to the fight at JFK park.
The investigation also discovered that an altercation at a taco shop led to the fight. Ultimately on June 6th, 20-year-old Marcus Spearman and 39-year-old David Valenzuela of National City were as suspects in the homicide. They were subsequently charged with murder on June 11.
A third suspect, identified as Cesar Diaz-Vasquez, remains on the loose and is being sought by law enforcement.
Spearman and Valenzuela were booked into San Diego County Jail, and are being held on $2 million bail.
