Woman, 20, wanted in homicide near Loxahatchee

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a 20-year-old woman who is a person of interest after an overnight fatal stabbing near Loxahatchee.

PBSO said the woman, Melanie Eam, is wanted after a homicide occurred Thursday morning near Glasgow Drive and Seminole Pratt Whitney Road.

Deputies said family members arrived at a home and found their loved one dead.  Chopper 5 flew over the scene at 6:30 a.m., and multiple PBSO vehicles and crime tape were surrounding the home.

Eam may be driving a white 2002 Toyota Corolla with Florida tag No. 642-RRC.

“I saw the car that they’re looking for. I’ve never even recognized that car driving down the street before,” said one neighbor.

Anyone with information about Eam's whereabouts should call Crime Stoppers or the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office at 1-800-458-TIPS or 561-688-3000.

The name of the stabbing victim has not been released.
