A man who is already in custody in connection with a string of burglaries in the Malibu Creek State Park area has now been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of a father who was camping in the park in late June and other shootings, authorities announced Monday.
Anthony Rauda, 42, was charged with one count of murder, 10 counts of attempted murder and five counts of second-degree burglary, Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office officials said.
Rauda allegedly opened fire on campers and motorists in incidents dating back to November 2016.
On June 22, Rauda is accused of shooting and killing Tristan Beaudette, 35, while he was camping in a tent with his two daughters in the state park. The children were not injured. The girls are listed as "Jane Doe #1 and 2" in a criminal complaint charging Rauda with their attempted murders.
Prosecutors on Monday said Rauda shot at vehicles in and around the area of the state park. The criminal complaint, released Monday, lists people Rauda is charged with trying to kill, but not many details are offered in each case:
Four days before Beaudette was fatally shot, Rauda attempted to kill Ian Kincaid, according to the criminal complaint.
On July 22, 2017, Rauda allegedly shot at people identified in the complaint as "Nathan G." and "Nicole K" with a shotgun. The complaint does not elaborate on what occurred, or if the two people were shot in separate incidents.
On June 8, 2017, Rauda allegedly shot at Thomas Marshall who was in a Tesla on Las Virgenes Road, according to the criminal complaint.
On Jan. 7, 2017, Rauda is charged with shooting at Melissa Tatangelo and Frank Vargas.
"...string of burglaries, attemped murder, and murder..."
Murder is a misdemeanor now in Cacafornia isn’t it?
"...murder is a misdemeanor in Cacafornia..."
This park is the location where the MASH TV show’s iconic outdoor scenes (and compound episodes) were filmed.
I’d shoot that son of a bitch on site if he approached my tent.
That’s what I was going to say. Looks like him.
Probably loonies camping in the parks. Years ago, one of them ran amok at a CA state park and used his hatchet to chop to death campers sleeping peacefully in their tents.
Actually maybe a little more reminiscent of that Ramirez guy aka “Night Stalker”. Though Charlie was cut from the same cloth, “Process Church” and the rest of it.
He has that devil worshipper vibe thing goin’ on. It’s like that Court Justice said, “I know it when I see it.”
Quite a few years back, a man and woman camping on an isolated beach in either northern California or Oregon were murdered. Wonder if this might be brought up.
