Frederick Oag trial: Police officer describes finding two men with multiple stabs wounds

Const. Travis Wintjes could see a woman waving him down on Adelaide Street as he and his emergency response unit partner drove up to the site of a reported stabbing.

The woman was near a man in a yellow sweatshirt who was on the sidewalk outside of 150 Adelaide St., just south of Hamilton Road. Another man was in the driveway.

The woman was pointing for him to go to the house. As he walked up to it, Wintjes, who was the first witness at Frederick Oag’s manslaughter trial, said he discovered one more man, this one sitting on the stoop facing the front door bent at the waist with his head between his legs and with one arm over the railing.

“Are you OK? Are you OK,” Wintjes said he asked the man, later identified as Shane Sturgess.

Sturgess, 45, was motionless, Wintjes said. His hair, black leather coat and blue jeans were

Ferndale son beat father to death, kept body for days in garage, police say

A Ferndale man beat his father to death with a hammer, hid his body in a garage for 1 ½ weeks, and dug a grave in the backyard to cover up the murder, according to police.

On Tuesday police responded to a faded pink two-story house at 6164 Grouse Circle, because a concerned family member hadn’t seen William Herman Koop Jr., 65, for weeks. At the home officers spoke with William’s son, Christopher Gregory Koop, 39, who confessed that his father’s body was in the two-car garage, police said.

Christopher Koop told officers they got into an argument over bills on April 13, when he “snapped” and repeatedly punched his father. He knocked his father out, got a hammer, and beat his unconscious father over the head, according to a prosecutor’s summary of the charges read in court.

Police: Sacramento quadruple homicide suspect confessed to cousin

A week after a quadruple homicide stunned a south Land Park neighborhood, Sacramento police said the suspect initially confessed to the crime to his cousin.

Salvador Vasquez-Oliva, 56, called his cousin last week who then called police and repeated what he’d learned, Capt. Dave Peletta said.

“Our suspect had come to his house earlier in the morning and confessed to something very horrific,” Peletta said. “The complainant then called us and said, ‘It’s very unusual, he’s a relative of mine, but I hadn’t seen him for an extended period time. So, it was very odd that he would come here and throw this out on me.’”

When officers arrived at the home, they picked the lock and discovered, what Peletta described as, a “horrific crime scene.”

Peletta told this information to a group of neighbors gathered for a community meeting Wednesday night, six days after the
