Investigating the Stabbing Death of a Panhandle Man

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the stabbing death of a panhandle man.

Fifty-three-year-old Frank Bruce of Fort Walton Beach died Saturday morning from multiple stab wounds to the neck.

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.

Results have not been released on the autopsy conducted Monday.
