Newly-released arrest warrants identify two people found dead in a South Sacramento home that was on fire Monday. The blaze led to a manhunt that ended when another two people were found dead in Southern California.
Chesley Felmley, 82, and Dennis Felmley, 62, were found dead in a home Monday French and Florin roads, arrest warrants show. The warrants were issued for Abraham Felmley, who had been sought as a suspect in the fire investigation. Chesley Felmley was Abraham Felmley's grandfather; Dennis Felmley was Abraham Felmley's uncle.
Authorities said they are still investigating the cause of the fire at the home.
Abraham Felmley was found dead Tuesday in Huntington Beach. His body was found along with the body of Robert Andres Duran, 49, of Huntington Beach. Duran was identified by Huntington Beach police Wednesday.
Abraham Felmley had fled the Sacramento area after the fire and was last seen in Merced County that afternoon. Warrants charging him with the murder of his uncle and grandfather were issued Tuesday. Deputies believed he was headed to Southern California in the stole car with at least one firearm.
According to court records, before Felmely carjacked a man in Merced and ditched the family truck he was driving, he stopped at a Safeway on Alhambra Boulevard in Midtown Sacramento. Investigators found a receipt from the Safeway inside the dodge pickup truck.
The receipt led investigators to catching him on surveillance video inside the store making a purchase, helping connect him to the stolen truck.
Detectives also said inside the truck they found a .38 revolver registered to Chesley Felmley, giving detectives even more reason to suspect him of murder and robbery.
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. 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.
