A man suspected in a double homicide, arson and carjacking in Sacramento was found dead of apparent gunshot wounds with another man in a Huntington Beach park on Tuesday, authorities said.
The bodies of Abraham Felmley, 32, and another, unidentified man were found in the early afternoon in the densely wooded Bartlett Park (map), said Sgt. Jason Ramos of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.
UPDATE: The second body has been identified as that of Robert Andres Duran.
Felmley, described as a homeless "nomad," was suspected of a double murder and arson case in Sacramento from Monday morning, Ramos told NBC4. Felmley then allegedly carjacked a driver in Merced, Calif., shortly after the slayings, Ramos said.
Police warned Felmley's relatives in Southern California, including Orange County. Among those warned was Felmley's mother, who spoke to NBC4 on Tuesday night and asked not to be identified by name.
"We were in hiding," she said during a tearful interview. She added that all of Felmley's other relatives appeared to be accounted for, and she wasn't sure who the other dead man was.
Felmley was no stranger to Huntington Beach. Public records showed that from 2000 to 2002, Felmley lived about 4 miles away from the Bartlett Park crime scene.
In the Sacramento case, arson investigators found the bodies of two men - an 84-year-old and his son - in a burned home about 11 a.m. Monday in the 7300 block of French Road in southern Sacramento County (map).
A white truck was reportedly missing from the home, according to a Sacramento County Sheriff's Department statement.
After 3 p.m., authorities received a report of a carjacking near Highway 152 in Merced, about 100 miles south of Sacramento. The carjacking suspect matched the description of Felmley, and he drove up to the victim in a white truck, the statement said.
Felmley allegedly held the victim at gunpoint and demanded the keys to the victim's 1992 green Toyota Camry and the victim's cell phone, the statement said.
A green Toyota Camry was found near the scene of the Huntington Beach investigation, authorities said.
