PA records third homicide in a week
In what has become a murderous week for Port Arthur detectives, detectives are working on the city's seventh homicide of the year and the third since last Saturday after police discovered Quanita Benjamin shot to death in the 400 block of Duane.
However, according to a source close to the investigation, it appears the shooting may have been accidental, but police are continuing to investigate.
Police are also working on a homicide from earlier in the week when Thurel Malveaux was found stabbed to death in his apartment in Port Arthur. Police have identified several persons of interests in the death of the 27-year-old Malveaux, a former West Brook quarterback, and that investigation in ongoing.
