The agency’s account said Lenin Elizalde, 28, was discovered at Valley Springs House yesterday morning as new residents were entering. He refused to leave until they called 911 – and then threatened to return.
A sheriff’s deputy called by the owners found Elizalde in the area just before noon on Saturday and arrested him on suspicion of trespassing, vandalism and possession of methamphetamine, all immoral.
While he was being taken to prison, Elizadez told the deputy that the house belonged to his family and that he intended to return. Due to this threat, the deputy requested an increase in bail. The judge rejected the request, and Elizalde was released from prison at 6:20 p.m. Saturday.
About 12:25 a.m. Sunday morning, a man called 911 at the Valley Springs home. The deputies arrived in the courtyard to look for two men who said a stranger kicked in the front door and attacked one of the occupants, who was sleeping in the room. Another occupant took a gun and shot the assailant.
The intruder was pronounced dead at the scene.The attackers were taken to hospital for treatment of injuries. He was not arrested or extradited. The sheriff’s office said an investigation was under way.
An autopsy and toxicology test will be performed on Elizalde.
Property records show the farm-style home sold for 42 425,000 on September 30. He was one of the parents of the former owner Al-Zalde. It is located in the foothills of Sierra Nevada, in a seamless neighborhood of spacious homes on the southern tip of the Valley Springs.
