Rockford, IL – A shocking stabbing at a Rockford Walmart results in a young employee’s death and a Cadbery man’s murder charge.

The Rockford Police Department detailed that on the evening of March 24, 2024, an 18-year-old male Walmart employee suffered a fatal stabbing at the Northridge location. Authorities, arriving at the scene at 6:05 p.m., swiftly provided aid, but the victim later succumbed to his injuries at a nearby hospital. The suspect, 28-year-old Timothy Carter, identified as the assailant, had recently been a resident of both Kankakee and Ford Counties before being taken into custody. 

Carter now faces a first-degree murder charge in the Winnebago County Jail. While the investigation continues, officials stress the importance of remembering that an accusation does not establish guilt, as legal proceedings are forthcoming. The Rockford Police Department encourages anyone with information to contribute to the case’s clarity as it unfolds.
