Tyson worker’s death under investigation

June 8, 2011


— Finney County officers are investigating the death of a Tyson Fresh Meats worker who was stabbed in the neck at the company's Garden City plant.

Sheriff's deputies were called to the plant Tuesday night. They found 30-year-old Cesar Muniz at the nurse's station with a wound in the neck. He was taken to St. Catherine Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The Garden City Telegram reports that a preliminary investigation found that Muniz and a 34-year-old man who were working in the same area of the plant somehow bumped heads while working. The other man had a knife in his hand and Muniz was stabbed.

Finney County Sheriff Kevin Bascue says the investigation is continuing.
