Reporting Officer's narrative

REPORTING OFFICER'S NARRATIVE (Brief narrative of the facts surrounding the offense and the arrest.)

At 10:13 a.m., Dispatch received a 911 call regarding vandalism and possible disappearance or injury of the tenant at a rental property on Shady Oaks Circle. The caller identified herself as Sally Stoppard, a real estate agent responsible for management of the property.

The caller indicated she had left the scene as she was concerned for her safety. The 911 operator instructed the caller to remain nearby the scene until a patrol unit arrived and then to make contact with the Responding Officer (R/O).

Unit #305 (Deputy P. J. Watson) was immediately dispatched to the scene, with Unit #221 (Officer Maria Richards) and Unit # 202 (Officer A. L. Quinlan) responding as back-up.

R/O arrived at the scene at 10:17 a.m., with Officer Richards arriving at 10:21 a.m. and Officer Quinlan at 10:25 a.m. Environmental conditions at the scene upon arrival are as follows: Weather: Light rain; Ambient temperature: 57º F / 14º C; Relative Humidity: 100%.

Upon arrival, R/O observed an adult female drive into the location immediately after his vehicle. The woman identified herself as Sally Stoppard, the complainant.

R/O conducted a preliminary interview with the complaining witness to determine the cause for her complaint. Interview transcript attached.

Stoppard said in summary and not verbatim:

Stoppard received no response to her knocks at the front entrance and proceeded to the rear of the residence.

After receiving no response to knocks at the rear entrance and observing a broken window and other signs of disturbance, Stoppard entered the residence through the unlocked rear entrance.

Once inside the residence, she observed signs of apparent vandalism in the kitchen including food and other unidentified substances strewn and smeared across the countertops, walls, floor and other surfaces.

She was in fear for her safety and left the property before placing the 911 call.

After ascertaining the cause for the witness's complaint, R/O instructed Stoppard to remain with Officer Quinlan while R/O and Officer Richards conducted a well-being search of the residence.

R/O's observation at the rear of the residence found signs of forced entry. Upon entering the residence through the back door, R/O observed signs of vandalism as described by the complaining witness.

R/O proceeded with the well-being check towards the front of the residence while Officer Richards checked areas to the southeast side of the residence.

Further inspection revealed similar apparent vandalism throughout the residence. No persons, living or deceased, were found within the residence.

During the well-being check, R/O observed several framed photographs in the residence which depicted a woman resembling the body discovered near the Kelly Green construction site on 02/18/2017. After confirming with the complainant that the woman pictured was her tenant, R/O notified Dispatch of the possible connection to that incident.

YCSD detectives T. Armstrong and S. Murphy were notified of the incident and the possible connection to Incident #000569-18B-2017 for follow-up.

A search warrant for the residence to allow a more thorough search is pending at this time.

Okay, if this is where the girl that was murdered lived, maybe all that evidence of a vandalism also means that she put up a fight with someone and obviously lost. We should know her name soon.

Though it could still be confusing, it would be nice to have some pictures of the residence. Maybe we could get a sense of "vandalism", "fight/struggle" or "ransacking/search". While they might look somewhat similar they are very different crimes.
