American bishop could have been murdered by the husband of his housekeeper
The Sheriff identified the suspect as Carlos Medina, 65, the husband of the bishop’s housekeeper.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert G. Luna on Monday announced the arrest of a suspect in the murder of Los Angeles Auxiliary Bishop David O’Connell.
Sheriff Luna identified the suspect as Carlos Medina, 65, the husband of the bishop’s housekeeper.
Medina was heard saying that Bishop O’Connell owed him money, tipsters told investigators. A car similar to the SUV he drove was seen on surveillance video driving into the bishop’s driveway.
Bishop O’Connell was found dead on Saturday afternoon. He was discovered with a gunshot wound to the upper torso in his home in Hacienda Heights. No weapons were found on the scene, and there was no sign of forced entry.
Medina had previously done work around O’Connell’s residence. Police arrested him at his home in Torrance after a brief standoff.
