A story for every victim

Jason Darnell Brown, 41

Jason Darnell Brown, a 41-year-old black man, was stabbed to death Monday, Jan. 1, in the 800 block of East 87th Place in the Green Meadows area of South Los Angeles, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 7:30 p.m., Los Angeles Police responded to a home and found Brown suffering from stab wounds, said LAPD Det. Dave Garrido.

Brown was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:42 p.m., according to coroner’s records.

Investigators think Brown got into an argument inside a home with a 48-year-old black woman he was dating, Garrido said.

The woman, identified by police as Roshawn Knight, stabbed Brown during the argument, then fled in a large SUV, Garrido said.

Authorities found Knight in Hunt County, Texas, on Jan. 3, according to online jail records. Knight is awaiting extradition to Los Angeles, where she faces murder charges, police said.
