Itzcoatl Ocampo, a former Marine, died in his cell before his case went to trial for the 2-month killing spree he allegedly conducted. In late March, his family was allowed to bury him in a small, private ceremony.
Accused of killing six people, Ocampo was described by prosecutors as a “monster”, while his father argued that the time his son spent in the military broke him. While the investigation into his death is ongoing, it is believed he poisoned himself on Thanksgiving with Ajax, a cleaning agent given to inmates in small quantities.
Last year, FBI Special Agent Jeff Cugno and Sergeant Daron Wyatt of the Anaheim Police Department briefed attendees on the case. This year they return to conduct a 3-day long workshop on homicide task forces. They’ll cover lessons learned and what worked for their agencies to bring a stop to the homeless homicides in Orange County, California.
