6 People Found Dead In the Mojave Desert

Authorities arrested 5 men in connection with the killing of 6 people in the Mojave Desert last week. During Monday evening news conference, Bernadino County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Michael Warrick said the killings appear to be connected to illegal marijuana, and 6 people were fatally shot, with 4 people burned.

Authorities didn’t give details of the killing spree as the matter is under investigation by the district attorney’s office. All victims were discovered, and one of them had called 911 last Tuesday before his death. He spoke in Spanish and explained that he had a gunshot wound and didn’t know where he was.

“Dispatchers tracked the phone via latitude and longitude coordinates to a remote area in unincorporated Adelanto,” Warrick said. Deputies with the sheriff’s office and an air operations unit from the California Highway Patrol searched the area and found the brutal crime scene where two cars with multiple gunshot wound victims were located.

Four of the victims were discovered with severe burns, and a fifth man was inside a vehicle. Authorities assumed the sixth man might have called 911, and he was located a little far from the crime scene. 4 victims’ identifications were released and they are Baldemar Mondragon-Albarran (34), Franklin Noel Bonilla (22), Kevin Dariel Bonilla (25), and a 45-year-old man.

Authorities served multiple search warrants throughout the investigation and recovered several firearms and other evidence.

Suspects are Toniel Baez-Duarte (34), Mateo Baez-Duarte (24), Jose Nicolas Hernandez Sarabia (33), Jose Gregorio Hernandez Sarabia (34), Jose Manuel Burgos Parra (26). All Suspects were located and arrested. They were booked for PC 187-Murder and are being held without bail.
