Still Many Unanswered Questions after Weekend Stabbing

Police are still not releasing much information in the wake of a fatal stabbing that took place early Saturday morning in Pana.

The Victim, 29 year old James “Adam” Bertin was attending a family get together in memory of his cousin, James Cox, who passed away in the hospital last Monday.  It’s still not known what caused the incident in which Bertin was stabbed in the neck.  He was pronounced dead Saturday just after 4am at Pana Community Hospital.

According to Christian County Coroner Amy Calvert Winans, an autopsy was scheduled to take place over the weekend.

Police have so far not announced any arrests or named any suspects, but they are apparently treating the incident as a homicide.
