He is identified as Joshua Neil Anthon, 31, of Rio Linda.  Anthon has been booked into Yolo County Jail on one count of murder. Police believe his motorhome struck and killed Michael Ray Anderson in the parking lot of a liquor store and shopping center on the 900-block of Sacramento Avenue. Anderson, age 55, was a West Sacramento resident.

 Detectives are still looking for the woman believed to be with Anthon in the RV.

 West Sacramento police have identified her as 33-year old Pamela Nicole McKee, of Sacramento, considered a “person of interest” in the case. Anyone with information on McKee’s whereabouts is asked to call W.S.P.D. at (916) 372-3375.

 Police believe there was some sort of dispute involving the suspects and the victim before the RV hit Anderson.

 After Tuesday night’s incident, police released surveillance video stills of the suspects and the motorhome to the media. The exposure helped, said Lieutenant Tod Sockman.

West Sacramento police are looking for help from the public after a man was struck and killed by an RV in a Sacramento Avenue shopping center parking lot last night.

 

Lieutenant Tod Sockman of the W.S.P.D. reports that police responded to 960 Sacramento Avenue – a liquor store near Arteaga’s Market – at about 9:40 last night (Oct. 5). They found a deceased man in the parking lot. He had been killed, apparently, after being struck by an RV that fled the scene eastbound on Sacramento Avenue.

Officers believe the killing occurred after the occupants of the motor home had been in an argument with the victim and other people before the killing.

 

The victim was  Michael Ray Anderson, a 55-year old resident of West Sacramento, according to Mark Persons of the Yolo County Sheriff/Coroner’s office.

The motor home is tentatively described as a 1999 Tiffin Allegro, 28 to 30 feet in length. It is off-white with a blue or turquoise “rocker” on the bottom.

 

The suspects were picked up on video from one of the businesses in the complex. They are described as a white male man and woman, both in their early 30s.

FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — MAY 15, 2013 —

West Sacramento’s firefighters responded to a burning travel trailer (above) on May 5. The trailer at 744 Walnut Street was being used as a residence.

They controlled the fire in about 10 minutes, but the trailer and its contents were determined to be “a total loss,” reports the department.

In other action, the fire department joined the city department of public works, city hall personnel, the Yolo County Emergency Services director, state Department of Water Resources and other personnel from April 22-25 for “Operation Noah’s Ark.”

The operation used computers and field exercises to simulate the crisis of a “slow-rise” flood in West Sacramento produced by “the convergence of storm runoff, controlled dam releases, high tidal influence and sloughage of the levee at the Bryte Bend.”

Participants practiced their resource deployment and public information strategies.
