2 mins read

A San Jose family is grieving the death of their 6-year-old after a stabbing that killed two. 

The young boy was identified through a GoFundMe page as Jordan Cam Walker. 

According to investigators, Jordan and his great-grandmother were stabbed inside an apartment in the Buena Vista neighborhood. 

On Friday, police officers were sent to Parkmore Avenue for a welfare check. At the scene, they found two bodies. 

The double homicide was traumatizing, police said. 

Jordan was a “beloved 6-year-old child who loved the outdoors, swimming, playing baseball, and basketball. During his short time with us, Jordan brought joy, laughter, and love to many people,” family members wrote on the GoFundMe page.

“Jordan was taken from us way too soon, and his absence leaves a void that cannot be filled,” the page states. The GoFundMe page was created to gather donations for the boy’s funeral.

The San Jose Police Department has yet to disclose the details of the crime. 

The great-grandmother’s name was not released by law enforcement officials. 

SJPD Sgt. Steve Aponte declined to say whether detectives have identified a suspect, or made any arrests. “This was a very shocking and tragic incident that we are investigating. We are seeking justice,” Aponte told reporters Monday.
