According to a bail offer from prosecutors, Perron Thurston was upset that his son was smoking cannabis earlier in the morning. He called his son’s workplace, a coffee shop, and said he couldn’t come to work. An argument ensued in the kitchen and Isaac Thurston “took a knife from a block on the counter and stabbed the victim once in the left side of the torso,” the offering said.
After being stabbed, Perron Thurston called his wife and told her, “Isaac just stabbed me,” according to the offer. The wife jumped out of bed and ran to the kitchen and then called 911. The victim’s second son came out of his bedroom after hearing the noise and began giving the victim chest compressions.
