Sheriff’s deputies at the scene were tight-lipped as far as details on why they were there.

“The death appeared suspicious, and our homicide investigators from the Sheriff’s Specialized Investigation Detail responded and took control of the investigation,” said Sheriff’s Public Information Officer Mara Rodriguez.

On Wednesday, May 15, authorities arrested Thang, a 42-year-old Twin Peaks man, on suspicion of murder.
