Police say Tara Desousa, 50, and Matthew Kyle Huntington, 44, were dating, but according to a restraining order Huntington filed against her in November 2014, he claims she stalked and abused him.

“She is obsessed with me. She is mentally ill. She has others threaten me,” Huntington wrote in the order. “Tara is not (in) her right mind and is a threat to myself and my family.”

Monterey detectives believe Desousa, a petite blonde woman who worked as a server in Monterey, was stabbed to death in the bedroom of her Laine Street home by Huntington, a golf caddie at one of the country’s best golf courses, Wednesday night.

Late Wednesday night Monterey officers responded to a report of a stabbing in the 200 Block of Laine Street.

It happened at 10:21pm, and the initial report indicated the woman was stabbed by a man she knew at a home. Officers located a woman suffering from multiple stab wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The suspect had fled the scene before officers arrived.

Shortly after, the suspect was found just blocks away near the intersection of Lighthouse and Reeside. Police say the suspect was unconscious and had significant injuries resulting from a fall from the rooftop of Oya Inc hair salon.

Carbone took pictures with his cell phone of Huntington lying on the ground, as officers arrested him and took him to the hospital. Carbone said initially he thought a cab driver may have hit Huntington, but another woman waiting for a bus was (said) what happened.

“I said, did that car just hit him? And she looked in the air and said he just jumped off that roof,” Carbone said.
