RANDLEMAN, N.C. – Authorities said the suspect in a fatal stabbing in Randolph County was arrested while trying to board a flight to Mexico.

Edgar Saldana Ramirez, 21, was arrested late Sunday morning at Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, according to the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office.

Officials said the suspect is charged with murder in the death of 43-year-old Eduarrdo Bonilla Hurtado.

Hurtado was found dead at a home at 2265 Leonae Drive in Randleman shortly before 10:30 p.m. Saturday, according to deputies.

Authorities said a friend found the victim on the floor with multiple stab wounds and lacerations. The friend then called the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office, officials said.

Deputies said the victim was pronounced dead at the scene and had been dead for several hours.

A motive in the murder has not been established and it remains unclear how the victim and suspect knew each other, according to deputies. The investigation is ongoing.

Authorities said the suspect was arrested by police at the airport. He was allegedly trying to flee the area, headed to Mexico.

Ramirez was turned over to investigators with the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office and was served with the warrant for murder, according to officials.

The suspect was placed in the Randolph County Jail without bond.

      Norma, any body of any race can do bad things. Please to not generalize a whole race because of the actions of one individual. Hispanic people are just as hard working and good as white, or black, or native American, or asian people. In this world there are good people and bad people. Race has nothing to do with that. Please keep an open mind.

    rembrandt, that so called “low life” was a father to two school aged children, a husband, a brother and a son. My heart goes out to his friends and family who all had to wake up to this awful news this morning.
