Rock County Marine stabbed to death at California base

The father of a U.S. Marine stabbed to death at a California base tells 27 News the young man was from Rock County. 

Ethan Barclay-Weberpal, was stabbed to death Tuesday at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, according to a Facebook post from his father, Scott Weberpal.

Barclay-Weberpal was a private first class in the Marine Corps after graduating from Almont High School in Lapeer County last May. He also attended Whitewater and Janesville Parker high schools. 

Military officials confirm one Marine was stabbed and another taken into custody at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, but they have yet to name of the marine killed.

First responders were called to Area 52, the sprawling section of Camp Pendleton where the School of Infantry is housed, around 7:45 a.m. on Tuesday following reports of an injured person, according to the San Diego-Union Tribune. 

Marine spokesman Capt. Joshua J. Pena told the Union-Tribune that agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service are probing the incident and one Marine is in military custody.
