HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA - The suspect in connection to a south Sacramento fire, where two people died, was found dead in Huntington Beach Tuesday afternoon, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department said.

Abraham Felmley was named a person of interest after two of his family members were found dead inside south Sacramento home that was set on fire Monday morning. He was upgraded to a suspect Tuesday afternoon, according to Sacramento County Sheriff's investigators.

Felmley fled the Sacramento area and was last seen in Merced County that afternoon.

Sacramento County sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos said Felmley was identified as a suspect in an armed carjacking in Merced County. Deputies believed he was headed to Southern California in the stole car with at least one firearm.

Authorities said they are still investigating the exact cause of the fire at the home.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Huntington Beach Police Department got a report that two bodies were found in Barlett Park by a person walking in the area. When officers arrived at the scene, they found the bodies of the two men among the trees and brush.

Ramos said the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department worked with the Huntington Beach Police Department after the bodies were found.

By Tuesday evening, law enforcement was able to identify one of the men found dead was Felmley, Ramos said. The identity of the other man was not released.

Records show Felmley's most recent address was in Huntington Beach.

It is unclear how the two men died. Ramos said the investigation into Felmley and the other man's death will be handled by the Huntington Beach Police Department.

Felmley was no stranger to authorities. His criminal past includes pleading guilty to domestic abuse in 2007 in Orange County.

On Felmely's Facebook page, he listed Sacramento as his home. His profile and pictures offer a snap shot into his life before he died. On April 28, he posted on his timeline, "It was one of those misogynistic nights. I was on several missions at once."


"He had a history of abuse of some controlled substances," Ramos said. "Obviously, when you factor that in all bets are off."
