Antioch, California – Less than 48 hours have passed since the double homicide in Antioch, where a 30-year-old woman and her 15-year-old son were found dead in their residence, and another incident occurred in the East Bay city.
Live Oak High School in Antioch was closed down on Monday morning, and police, bomb squad officers, and ATF agents surrounded a location near the school after a corpse was discovered under suspicious circumstances. According to authorities, ATF officers from Walnut Creek were called in when the corpse of a dead 50-year-old male was located in the 1700 block of F Street with wires either sticking out of it or next to it.
The corpse had also been exposed to “severe trauma,” but no bullet casings were discovered nearby, and the cause of death is yet unknown.
According to Antioch Police Officer Darryl Saffold, the victim is thought to have died as a result of injuries sustained as a result of the explosion of an “improvised explosive device.” There were no more devices discovered at the location.
In addition, classes at Antioch Middle School, which is located close to the high school, were canceled on Monday as a result of this incident. Residents in the surrounding area were subsequently instructed to stay in their houses.
A murder investigation is underway, and this is Antioch’s fourth suspected homicide investigation this year.
