Police have arrested the second suspect in the stabbing death of 49-year-old Thomas Grimes, according to a press release from the Nacogdoches Police Department.
Nathan Welsh, 22, who is charged with murder, was arrested at about 9:30 Wednesday morning on Park Street at Crisp Road, NPD Public Information Officer Greg Sowell said in the release.
Grimes was found by his neighbor at about 10:50 p.m. Monday, stabbed multiple times in the torso and was pronounced dead at Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital soon after arriving.
Though the details of that night are still unclear, police are closer to finding answers, Sowell said.
"About all we know right now is they all three knew each other and they were all in the apartment together and there was a disturbance that ensued, some sort of disagreement, and this man ended up stabbed," Sowell said.
Police on Tuesday arrested 18-year-old Milton Brown, who turned himself in on a murder warrant, in connection with the stabbing, Sowell said.
Both Welsh and Brown are listed as homeless.
