Man suspected of being the Stockton serial killer is charged with three murders.
Rudy Allen Nesbit Jr, 27, was arrested on Nov. 21, after reportedly leading authorities on an intense manhunt that started with his arrest after a car crash in Texas on Nov. 8. Police said he was wanted in connection with the murders of three women in California.
Nesbit is suspected of being involved in the killings of a man and his wife in Stockton in July and a 13-year-old girl in Los Angeles in July, police confirmed. Two of the women were found dead and the third was found dead at an apartment in Los Angeles.
Nesbit, who has several felonies on his record, was charged with murder, kidnapping and robbery in the death of the man, police said. He is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 13.
The day after Nesbit was arrested, Los Angeles police issued a warrant for his arrest in the case of the woman found dead in an apartment in Los Angeles on July 28.
On Nov. 21, police in Stockton said Nesbit was charged with the kidnapping, the murder and the attempted murder of that man and the attempted murder of his wife in the car crash.
According to the arrest affidavit, a police investigator went to the apartment complex at the time of the crash on November 8 to get a statement from an alleged accomplice who had allegedly been involved in the car wreck.
The alleged accomplice told police a man named “Rudy” was driving on the road and crashed into another car, which was occupied by an adult man in his 50s. The adult man was taken to the hospital and after that, the alleged accomplice said he went to the apartment complex where he found the woman’s body.
The woman was not identified in court documents, but she has been identified as a 20-year-old who worked in a department store.
According to the affidavit, investigators obtained the license plate of the vehicle crash that included the woman’s name and noted there was not much traffic on the road on the day of the crash.
In the affidavit, investigators said the woman’s body was not covered, but they noted that the body did have a single bullet wound to
