SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — Santa Clara County sheriff’s deputies, family members and activists are searching for suspects who stabbed and killed a 28-year-old San Jose man on Sunday.

Deputies found Francisco Santos Jr. suffering from a stab wound to the chest at 1:37 a.m. in the area of Raymond Avenue and West San Carlos Street in unincorporated San Jose after initially responding to a report of a shooting.

Deputies said he was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead about one hour later.

An investigation found that multiple possible suspects in a dark, full size GMC or Chevrolet truck were involved in the stabbing. The suspects are believed to be in their 20’s, according to the sheriff’s office.

Mothers Against Murder, a non-profit, is offering a $5,000 reward over the next 30 days for anyone with details leading to their arrest. Individuals can contact the sheriff’s office with information at (408) 808-4500.

Family members and friends have begun rallying to find the suspects with hashtag .JusticeForFrankie. Mothers Against Murder will join community members for a march Friday evening.

Erica Lee Rego, Santos’ mother, posted on Facebook Tuesday saying she was brokenhearted, but would fight to find her son’s killer. She said Santos was a father, a husband and her beloved son.

“I would have never thought in a million years, that I would be doing posts like this, all the posts that you see of me are of my family, which you ‘know’ mean the world to me,” Rego wrote, ” At this time my emotions are all over the place…But the strength that I have for my son is what’s keeping me going and fighting to catch these people.”

Rego and activists will begin the march at 6:30 p.m. at the corner of Bascom Avenue and San Carlos Street. There will also be a car wash to raise money for Santos’ family from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 2270 Monterey Street in San Jose on Saturday.

  1. Just ask Nancy Pelosi and she will tell you that this was done by the good people of the MS13 gang. We really need more of them in Mexifornia, for diversity’s sake.

  2. What would help the crime rates in these Mexi-infested areas is if the ghetto garbage moms would close their legs.
