Police: Man in custody believed responsible for all 4 recent Southern Calif. homeless killings
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) ' Police in Southern California say they believe a man in their custody is responsible for all four recent killings of homeless men in Orange County.
Anaheim police said at a news conference Saturday that investigators have tied 23-year-old Itzcoatl Ocampo of Yorba Linda to the killings.
Ocampo was detained Friday night after a fourth homeless man was found slain in a Carl's Jr. restaurant parking lot.
Three other homeless men have been found stabbed to death in north Orange County since mid-December, and a task force of police officers, sheriff's deputies and FBI agents had been looking for the single suspect they believed was responsible for all three.
A phone number listed in Ocampo's name rang without an answer, and no one answered the door at two addresses listed in his name.
