ABITA SPRINGS – A man was stabbed to death in a trailer park near Abita Springs last night.

An argument broke out between two men in a trailer park in the 20300 block of Highway 36 around 8:30 p.m. on June 22, according to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office.

One man pulled out a knife and stabbed 20-year-old Javier Ortiz Flores, who died on the scene.
