Fall River police seek slay suspect
Man dead after stab at party
Fall River police want the public’s help in finding a man they say fatally stabbed a man at a party on Saturday.
Fall River police say Adam Conners, a 29-year-old who lives in Fall River and has ties to Halifax, stabbed a man at a party who later died from his injuries.
Police say Conners stabbed 39-year-old Joseph Reading, also of Fall River, multiple times at about 11:30 p.m. at a get-together on Hall Street in the city.
Reading drove away from the party but crashed nearby — and had passed out and was unresponsive because of his wounds when the cops showed up, en route to the crash.
Reading was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead, according to police.
Police have a warrant for Conners’ arrest on a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious injury.
Anyone with information about Conners’ whereabouts is asked to call Detective Luis Vertentes at 508-3242796 or state trooper Tim Chiappini at 508993-2016.
