The Harford County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a Thursday stabbing in Bel Air that left a 17-year-old dead, the office reported.
Deputies responded to the 1200 block of Athens Court at approximately 5 a.m. Thursday for the report of a stabbing and found Christopher Jacob Kerfoot, 17 of Bel Air, in his residence suffering from multiple stab wounds to the upper body, the office reported.
