Authorities Tuesday identified a 16-year-old boy who was fatally stabbed in Lynwood and whose killer remains at large.

The stabbing occurred around 4 p.m. Monday in the 11900 block of Long Beach Boulevard, said Deputy Kelvin Moody of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.

William Escamilla of Lynwood died at a hospital, the coroner’s office reported.

The teen was speaking with the suspect in a parking lot when he was stabbed in the upper body. The suspect then rode his bicycle south on Long Beach Boulevard and out of view, Moody said.

The victim’s mother, who was at the location, took her son to the hospital, Moody said. No description was released of the suspect. The motive of the crime was unknown, Moody said.

Anyone with information on the case was urged to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
