Fatally-Stabbed HSU Student Named in GoFundMe Page Created to Cover Family’s Funeral Expenses
A GoFundMe page has been created to cover funeral costs for the HSU student who was fatally stabbed in Arcata early Saturday morning.
The page, which names the victim as David “DJ” Lawson, has raised more than $3,000 in less than 24 hours.
“He was a sophomore at Humboldt State University studying criminal justice where he would have used his degree to help the voiceless in the community,” the page reads. “The world has lost a bright and shining star.”
The Arcata Police Department has not released any new information on the student’s death. The suspect arrested in connection to the stabbing is reported to be a 23-year-old McKinleyville resident. The suspect’s name has not been released by APD.
