CALIFORNIA - The Shasta County Sheriff's Office says the man suspected of killing two in Shingletown has died in a Southern California crash and now his father is missing.
Officials say Daun Sanders was driving the wrong way in the southbound lanes of Interstate 15 in Ontario when he side-swiped a semi-truck. He then turned around and fled south before hitting the center median.
CHP says he then fled on foot with a puppy where he was struck by a car. Both Sanders and the puppy were pronounced dead on the I-15 scene.
Sanders was the only suspect in the Shingletown case and the investigation of the murder is ongoing.
During the investigation, detectives say they learned Sanders's father, 80-year-old William Sanders of Shingletown, has not contacted his family since Thursday, June 25. Shasta County detectives say he is considered missing and at risk.
