Santa Ana police asked Thursday for the public’s help tracking down the last person to be seen with a man who was stabbed to death near a Walmart last month.
Police released surveillance video images from a Walmart store at 3600 W. McFadden Ave. depicting the man they want to question about the fatal stabbing of 41-year-old Dennis Quan Tran of Westminster.
Tran was attacked outside the store about 2:45 a.m. on Dec. 18, according to Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna.
“The victim was seen walking behind the Walmart with this particular individual several hours before he was found deceased,” Bertagna said, referring to the man seen in the store video footage. “So, as far as we know, he’s the last person the victim was seen with.”
Police want to question the man to see if he has any information that will help investigators solve the case, Bertagna said.
Anyone with information was asked to call police at (714) 245-8390 or Orange County Crime Stoppers, which accepts anonymous tips, at (855) TIP-OCCS.
