Details released regarding Hoquiam homicide of Jon Favro
Prosecutors say the 16-year-old Hoquiam boy accused of fatally stabbing 22 year old Jon Favro of Aberdeen has been charged with second-degree murder as an adult. Bail was set at $500,000 yesterday.
The teen is accused of stabbing Favro early Saturday in Hoquiam after an argument. According to Hoquiam Police, Favro was parked in his 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt in the 500 Block of 28th Street with the 20 year old girlfriend of the suspect. The 16 year old allegedly struck Favro several times in the face with his fist and then proceeded to stab Favro once in the chest and a second time in the lower thigh.
Favro then drove away at a high rate of speed southbound on 28th Street, turning left onto Bay Avenue before hitting a rock embankment. The suspect was chasing after Favro’s vehicle on foot when the vehicle hit the embankment. Favro got out of the vehicle and fled on foot to the alley between Bay and Pacific Avenues where he died from his injuries. The Hoquiam Fire Department attempted medical assistance on scene.
The 16 year old then returned to his girlfriend’s apartment in the 500 block of 28th Street and allegedly rinsed off the knife and changed his clothing which he later planned to discard. When officers found the 16 year old Hoquiam boy, he admitted to stabbing Favro.
Favro was a 2008 graduate of Aberdeen High School and worked as a corrections officer in Shelton.
The investigation is ongoing.
