SLCPD Seeking Help Identifying Two People in Homicide Investigation
SALT LAKE CITY— Homicide detectives with the Salt Lake City Police Department are asking for help identifying two people who may have critical information related to the murder of a 28-year-old-man.
Photos of the two people are being released. One of the individuals has a large tattoo on her forearm that may read “Love You.”
This investigation started at 2:41 a.m. on Sunday, April 30, 2023, when SLC911 took a call about a stabbing at 32 East Exchange Place. The deceased victim was identified as Oscar Vera, of Sandy, Utah.
Detectives believe Vera was stabbed during a large fight that happened as people left a nearby nightclub.
During the fight, a second person was stabbed.
That person is recovering from their injuries and is expected to survive.
Detectives believe several people witnessed this stabbing but left the area before officers arrived.
Anyone who has information, including video, photos, or who has seen social media posts related to the stabbing, is asked to call 801-799-3000 and ask to speak with an officer.
This was the seventh homicide in Salt Lake City for 2023.
