Francis Augustine murder update: Suspected assailant in custody tonight

Posted: Thursday, April 6, 2023. 9:07 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Police say the man suspected in the murder of Francis Augustine this morning in Hopkins, also a village resident, is in custody tonight.

Police responded just before 4 a.m. to a call from a woman who said someone was knocking on her bedroom window, waking her up. Upon arrival, police found a dark-skinned man without a short and in brown short pants lying face up and motionless on the ground with multiple stab wounds to the body. He was identified to be Augustine.

The woman who initially called the police said she was scared to check on the sound and so called them instead.

Investigation showed that Augustine was asleep in his bedroom when someone entered and began stabbing him. Augustine jumped through a window in his room to escape and hit the ground, and tried to seek help from his neighbour, whose attention he was trying to get when he collapsed in the yard.

Police have detained one person and recovered the suspected murder weapon and other evidence. A post-mortem examination is scheduled on Augustine’s body and investigations continue.
