SPOKANE, Wash. - Nearly two weeks after a fatal stabbing near Lincoln and Indiana, police are continuing to ask anyone with any information, no matter how minimal, to come forward.

Police responded to the call of a fight in the area of Lincoln and Indiana just after 2 a.m. on August 15 and arrived on scene to 22-year-old William Floyd, who had been stabbed multiple time, barely breathing and almost unconscious.

Floyd later died from his injuries.

Police are seeking anyone who may have witnessed any part of the incident and are specifically seeking witnesses who may have been in the McDonald's parking lot when Floyd collapsed.

Detectives believe a witness may have tried to get a woman in a car to call police, but she said she did not have a cell phone and drove away. Police believe a man got out of a white car at the McDonalds drive-thru and tried to assist in first-aid. 

Police are also still seeking what they are calling a 'person of interest' in the case. Police say his version of the stabbing is crucial to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident. 

He is described by witnesses as a white male in his 20s. He was described as being approximately 6'0" with a medium to skinny build and was clean shaven at the time. 

He is described as having short hair and was wearing a dark colored shirt, glasses and may have been wearing blue jeans. 

Anyone with any information is asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
