Man Sought in Reno Double Murder Found Dead in California

A man sought for questioning in the May 11th fatal shootings of two people outside a Reno market has been found dead in Northern California.

Reno police say a body found earlier this year in Santa Clara County, Calif., was identified as that of 19-year-old Edwin Ramirez.

Ramirez was seen in his vehicle near the King Ranch Market in Reno just minutes prior to the shooting of a pregnant woman and another person.

Police say his vehicle was recovered a short time later, but he had not been heard from since.

Investigators had said that Ramirez might have "crucial information pertinent" to the Reno slayings.

Santa Clara sheriff's deputies say an investigation into Ramirez's death continues. They're working closely together with Reno police on the cases.
