A guy who showed up in a Northern California police station using a dead person in his automobile confessed to murdering four relatives, three of whom were discovered inside his apartment, authorities said Tuesday.
Shankar Hangud, 53, was arrested Monday after he turned himself into Mount Shasta authorities and told investigators he’d murdered the guy in his vehicle, Roseville Police Capt. Josh Simon stated.
Hangul is confronting four murder charges, Simon stated.
Officers found the bodies of an adult and two juveniles Monday in Hangud’s Roseville apartment following Mount Shasta authorities advised them of Hangud’s announcement, Simon stated.
Hangul abandoned his house in Roseville using the comparative seen in his car a week, and they moved to several areas in Northern California and finished up in Mount Shasta,” Simon stated.
It seemed that the victims were murdered over a couple of days, though detectives were trying to piece together if they expired, Simon stated.
“We are working to place that deadline collectively,” he explained. “We can affirm the sufferer he needed in his automobile from Mount Shasta was an adult man of East Indian descent.”
Simon requested the people to reach from the Roseville Police Department when they saw Hangud’s red Mazda 6 sedan or should they understand the household.
Officials were trying to identify the victims. An autopsy will determine the way they died, Simon stated. He declined to say whether the juveniles were kids or teens or provide some information on how they expired.
Detectives have interviewed Hangul, however, they haven’t determined a motive, he explained.
“There is a lot of stones which were unturned these detectives still should check into before making a true decision concerning what the motivation was, what directed the defendant to do what he did,” Simon stated.
Tax documents revealed that Hangud confronted an IRS tax lien of 178,00.
Hangud’s LinkedIn profile reveals he’s a data expert and had worked for many businesses in Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay region.
