The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the stabbing death of Frank Bruce, 52, of 1203 Charleston Circle in the Willow Bend subdivision.
Bruce died at 2 a.m. Saturday morning at the Fort Walton Beach Medical Center from multiple stab wounds to the neck.
Deputies were initially called to the house in response to a disturbance call. A juvenile suspect who claims to have been acting in defense of another family member inside the house is being questioned, but no charges have been filed at this time.
A pocketknife, believed to be the weapon used, was recovered inside the home. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
