Burleson father stabbed to death

Burleson resident, Fabian Sonora, 21, lost his life in the early morning hours Monday in Fort Worth, according to the Fort Worth Police Department.

The victim of an apparent stabbing, Sonora was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital about 8:45 p.m., FWPD spokesman Jimmy Pollozani said.

A 911 call sent family violence officers to the 3300 block of James Avenue in Fort Worth Sunday evening where they found Sonora with a stab wound to his upper torso, Pollozani said.

Sonora was pronounced dead about 2:30 a.m. Monday, The Tarrant County medical examiners's office confirmed his identity and police were able to arrest the [as of yet] unnamed suspect at the scene on outstanding warrants.

Sonora was a graduate of Pascal High School and left behind an infant daughter.

"My daughter n I look alike," Sonora wrote on his social media site, "Man I want the best for her. I know it won't be easy to take care of her. But I'll learn n stay busy to provide for my baby girl....I love her."

On that same site, friends mourned his loss.

"So sad just knowing he has a daughter that won't be able to have that father figure growing up like she is supposed to. It gives me and my family, church family, peace knowing he was baptized and had a relationship with God. Rest easy Fabian Sonora you will be missed."

Police refused to comment on their ongoing investigation.
