ADRIAN RIOS - 17 yo -(2009) Hemet CA

Post by TomTerrific0420 on Wed Nov 25, 2009 11:06 pm

Homicide investigators have found charred human remains at a home in Riverside County where three missing teens were last seen.

The teens, Felicia Sharpe, Adrian Rios and Jose Campos, all 17, were reported missing Nov. 17.


The remains were found by police serving a search warrant at the home in the 1400 block of Bluejay Way on November 18th.

Experts inspected the remains and determined they were human, prompting a police investigation.

Investigators returned to the home Wednesday morning and found more remains.

Investigators were digging in the backyard of the home in what appeared to be a shallow grave.

Lt. Dean Evans of the Hemet police said the remains have not been
identified and it's not clear if the remains belong to any of the three
teens. Investigators say one of the teens lived inside the home.

"There is no evidence that these remains are any of these three
juveniles," said Lt. Evans. "We have no idea who they are at this
point. They've just been identified by the forensic anthropologist, but
at this point, they've been identified as human remains but they have
not been identified through DNA analysis or anything like that at this
point. "It's going to take some time for that," Lt. Evans told
reporters.

Police have said they believe the teens may be together. Investigators
also say they do not believe the teens ran away or were abducted.

Unnamed sources at the scene say that authorities did not believe the
remains belong to 17 year old Felicia Sharpe. Sharpe was last seen
November 9th, but was not reported missing until November 17th. Adrian
Rios and Jose Campos, were also reported missing that same day. Campos
is Sharpe's boyfriend.

A spokesman for the Rios' family said that Rios was last seen November
15th when he went to the Bluejay Way home to watch a football game with
Campos. Rios never came home. That's when the family filed a missing
persons report.

That missing persons report prompted investigators to serve a search warrant at the home on November 18th.

Neighbors say they saw a bonfire in the backyard of the home around the time the teens were last seen.

FELICIA Found Safe - Two Teen Boys Still Missing

Post by TomTerrific0420 on Thu Nov 26, 2009 4:15 am

Investigators found more charred
human remains at the home of one of two missing Southern California
boys as a third teen turned up safe Wednesday.Felicia
Sharp apparently had been staying with her mother but didn't tell her
father about her whereabouts because her parents are estranged, police
Lt. Dean Evans said. The girl, 17-year-olds Adrian Rios and Jose Campos
were reported missing more than a week ago.Police said Sharp was
last seen Nov. 9 but wasn't reported missing until Nov. 17. They said
she last logged into her MySpace page on Nov. 14.
Rios was last seen going to the Campos home Nov. 15 to watch a football game, Evans
said. The fragmented remains were found in a makeshift backyard grave
outside the home, which the Campos family had been renting for the past
two months, he added."The only thing I know is my son, he never (would) stay and not talk to me for a long time," said Rios' mother, Elodia Lopez.Evans said the none of the teens had a history of running away.Remains
found in the backyard on Nov. 18 were later identified as human and a
second search Wednesday turned up more bones, which Evans said were in
small pieces that may take weeks of examination to identify.Because of their condition, Evans said he could not immediately link the remains to either of the missing teenagers."I can't tell you if it's one person, two people, a male, a female," he said.Neighbors reported smelling smoke from what appeared to be a bonfire or barbecue at the home last weekend.Matt
Miller, 21, who lives two houses away, said two teenagers matching the
description of the missing boys ran onto his lawn in a panic at about 6
p.m. Sunday. Their eyes were red and swollen.The teens told him
that they had been in a fight and claimed that someone had
pepper-sprayed them. They also said police were after them.
Miller washed their eyes with milk and they ran off, he said.
Several hours later, he and his wife smelled a foul burning odor.
"It was a very strong smell. I've never smelled it before," said his wife,
Irene Miller. "We had to shut our windows, it was so bad."A
large swath of the block was cordoned off with police tape Wednesday as
a dozen neighbors gathered around the single-story stucco house where
investigators brought out bagged evidence and loaded them into trucks.
The driveway was cluttered with household items such as boxes and bags
of clothes.Lopez said she was convinced her son is still alive."I feel it in my heart," she said.

Two teenaged boys remained unaccounted for today and investigation of burned human remains found in a yard at one of their homes in Hemet is on hold, authorities said.
Jose Campos, 17, and Andrian Rios, 17, were reported missing last week, along with Campos’ girlfriend, Felicia Sharpe, 17, who was found alive in the company of her mother on Wednesday.
Hemet police detectives interviewed Sharpe
Wednesday afternoon. Sharpe told investigators she had been spending
time with her mother, who is estranged from her father, Hemet police
said. Sharpe’s father reported her missing.
Since Nov. 18, investigators have discovered burned remnants,
confirmed to be human remains, in the yard at the Campos family’s home
in the 1400 block of Bluejay Way, according to Hemet police.
Investigators returned to the backyard of the home Wednesday to dig in what appeared to be a shallow grave.It remained unclear today whether the human remains are from one or
more people, a coroner’s investigator in Perris said early today. The
remains are referred to on the Riverside County coroner’s Web site as
”John/Jane Doe,” indicating they have not been identified in any way,
the investigator said.Witnesses told police a large bonfire was lit in the yard last
Sunday night when Campos and Rios got together to watch a football game.
”There is some evidence of a fire back there,” Evans said. ”It does
alarm us that these remains were found at the home of the missing
juvenile. However, no link has been made at this point.”
No arrests have been made in the case, and authorities indicated the
parents of the missing teens were cooperating with the investigation.
Sgt. Dave Quinn with the Hemet Police Department’s Investigations
Bureau is expected back on the case Friday, Hemet Police Sgt. James
Waters said early today.
Waters encouraged anyone with information to call 951 -765-2400.

A couple living near a Hemet house where police found charred human
remains may have been among the last people to see two teenagers who
had been at the house and were still missing on Thursday.

Matt
and Irene Miller said they found two teenagers in their yard the same
night neighbors say they saw an "out-of-control" bonfire in the
backyard of Jose Campos. Campos and Adrian Rios, both 17, have been
gone almost two weeks.

Rios hasn't been seen since Nov. 15,
when he told his family he was headed to the Campos' house on Bluejay
Way to watch a San Diego Chargers game.

Several calls made Thursday to Hemet police about the investigation were not returned.

On
Thursday, Irene and Matt Miller said that the two teenage boys who
showed up in their yard about 5 p.m. on Nov. 15 were Campos and Rio.
The couple said they recognized the boys in photographs of them
published after they were reported missing.

The Millers said the boys appeared to be intoxicated and had entered their yard through a gate.

"We heard our dogs barking and we came out to see what was going on," Irene Miller said.

Matt
Miller said the boys smelled of alcohol, had short hair and that their
eyes were red. They wore flannel-like jackets and baggy pants. One of
the boys had gloves in his back pocket.

The boys told the
Millers that someone who they tried to fight had pepper sprayed them.
Matt Miller said he and his wife used a hose to wash out their faces.

"They asked for milk because they said it would take the sting out from the pepper spray," Matt Miller said.

The
boys lay on the ground as the Millers poured milk on their faces, Matt
Miller said. Then, they got up and said they had to get away because
the police were on their way, Matt Miller said.

"They were here about five minutes," he said. "The cops did come. They knocked on the door about 25 to 30 minutes later."

Matt
Miller said the officers asked whether two "Mexicans" had been at his
house. He said he told police what happened and that the boys headed
back toward Campos' house. The officers didn't take a report, Miller
said.

"They (police) laughed and said that sounded about right," Miller recalled, adding that the officers stayed about two minutes.

It's
unclear whether police were called to the house the night of the
bonfire. Lt. Dean Evans on Wednesday said he was not aware of any
previous police calls made to the house.

Neighbors said they
saw a bonfire and smelled the strong odor of smoke coming from the
Campos backyard that reminded them of burning pallets.

Rios'
mother, Elodia Lopez, reported her son missing on Nov. 16 and posted
fliers about his disappearance. She urged officers to go to the Campos
house, police said, but it's unclear whether they did. Lopez couldn't
be reached for comment Thursday.

A third teenager who had been
reported missing, Campos' 17-year-old girlfriend, Felicia Sharpe,
reappeared Wednesday with her mother. Hemet police questioned Sharpe
and she was released.

OFFICERS CLEAR OUT

On
Nov. 17, police reports indicated the case at the Campos house was a
homicide investigation. They first searched the home Nov. 18, when they
found human remains.

Officers then watched the house for a
week before returning Wednesday and finding more remains, they said.
Late that afternoon, they removed their crime-scene tape and left the
house. Throughout the day investigators were tagging, photographing and
removing items from the home including, the lid of a washing machine.

Hemet
police said Wednesday that it could take weeks for DNA tests to confirm
the identity of the charred, fragmented bones and flesh found behind
the Campos home. Police were still trying to determine whether the
remains belonged to one person or more.

Police theorize that
someone set body parts on fire to cover up a homicide. But they said
they have no suspects. The parents of all three teens were said to be
cooperating with authorities.

Campos' family had been renting
the home in the neighborhood south of Hemet-Ryan Airport for about two
months, although it has stood empty since the Nov. 15 bonfire. The
house is near a gully that separates the dirt yard from Harmony
Elementary School.

On Thursday, neighbors said they never saw
anyone living at the home who they could identify as a parent. People
sometimes gathered at the house, but the activity didn't bother anyone.


Neighbor Raymond Tisdale said his wife saw Campos in the front yard the morning of the bonfire as she walked to church.

"They were moving furniture out at night after the police came the first time," he said.

Ryan
Gonzalez, who lives across the street from the Campos house, said
occasional parties were held with teenagers and adults who appeared to
be in their 30s, he said.

"They played pool in the garage," Gonzalez said. "Once in a while, they had loud parties. Nothing that bothered me."

Anyone with information call 951-765-2400.

When police
began their search for a missing Hemet teen, detectives were called by
a distraught mother who found her son's bloody shoe. A
search warrant obtained today outlines the beginning of the police
investigation into three missing 17-year-olds and the discovery of
charred human remains and evidence at the home on Bluejay Way in Hemet
last week. At the home Nov. 18, police recovered a
machete, a used bullet shell, a shovel, butcher knives, burnt pieces of
clothing, a bloody shoe, soil samples, an empty gas canister and other
personal belongings. Investigators continued their search
for Adrian Rios and Jose Campos, now missing for two weeks. Detectives
declared the investigation a homicide, but have not identified any
suspects. The search warrant does not give any narrative about who
committed the killing or a victim. The charred and
fragmented remains have not yet been identified while DNA testing is
pending. Authorities say results may not be in for several weeks. A third missing teen, Felicia Sharp, identified herself to police
Wednesday with her mother, saying she had been living with her mother
since Nov. 9, but did not want to tell her estranged father. Sharp was
interviewed for nearly two hours, but detectives have not released her
statements. There was no answer at Felicia's home today,
which is guarded by a pit bull and sits behind a chain link fence with
five "no trespassing" signs.

Police are questioning a "person of interest" in the disappearance of 2 teenagers.
That person could be connected to burned human remains found at a
home in Hemet. Police aren't saying who that person of interest is.
A search warrant says Hemet police found a machete, butcher knives,
a shovel, a bullet casing, burned clothing, and an empty gas canister
at the home of a missing Hemet teen.
Jose Campos, Adrian Rios, and Felicia Sharpe - all 17 - were reported missing mid-November.
Sharpe was found safe last week.
Authorities are now trying to determine whose remains they found.

Police said Friday they have issued a
murder arrest warrant for one of two missing Southern California teens
and believe charred and fragmented human remains found in the suspect's
Riverside County backyard belong to the other youth.Police are seeking Jose Campos, 17, and arrested his stepfather and mother, Jose and Maria Seym (SAY-em), late Thursday on suspicion of being accessories to murder, said Hemet police Capt. Tony Margis.Police have also issued an arrest warrant for Felicia Sharp, 17, and a 21-year-old man named Rene Lopez-Fregozo, Margis said. Lopez-Fregozo and Sharp are both wanted for being an accessory to murder, he said.

Authorities believe the charred remains found last month in a firepit behind Campos' house are those of 17-year-old Adrian Rios, although they are awaiting the results of DNA testing on some of the remains, including a severed human foot. Results could take several weeks.Margis said investigators believe Rios was shot and was dead when his body was placed in the firepit. They have not recovered a murder weapon and have not determined a motive, he said.At least six people were in Campos' home during the alleged murder or immediately after the crime, said police Chief Richard Dana.Police believe Campos' parents knew about the killing but were not at home when it happened.The investigation began on Nov. 17, when Rios' mother, Elodia Lopez, reported him missing.Lopez last saw her son two days before, when he went to Campos' house to watch a football game, authorities have said.When
he didn't come home, his mother went to Campos' house. She found no one
home but saw a bloody sneaker in the backyard and found drag marks in
the dirt. She told police the sneaker looked like her son's shoe,
according to a search warrant affidavit filed in the case.Police
also noted a number of flies clustered on a saturated area of the
ground, and found a machete, butcher knives, shovel, .22-caliber spent
shell casing, empty gas canister and burned and bloodied clothing,
according to the warrant.Sharp, who is Campos' girlfriend, was
initially reported missing, but she came forward last week and told
police she had been staying with her mother, who is separated from her
father.Margis said detectives do not believe she was truthful during a two-hour interview last week. She has since run away, he said.Also missing is the Campos family's white Chevy Tahoe.Hemet is a city of about 58,000 in a rural area 90 miles southeast of Los Angeles.The
alleged crime took place in a planned neighborhood of modern, one- and
two-story stucco homes with narrow residential streets dotted with
cul-de-sacs.

Human remains found in the backyard of a Hemet home are believed
to be those of a missing teenager, while two other teens thought to
have been missing are now suspects in his murder, police said
Friday.

Jose Campos, Adrian Rios and Felicia Sharp, all 17, were
reported missing last month, having last been seen Nov. 15 at
Campos' home on Bluejay Way. Neighbors said there was a bonfire
with a foul stench at the home that night.

Investigators found burned body parts in a fire pit behind the
home, and at a news conference Friday, they announced they believe
the remains are those of Rios, and that they suspect Campos shot
him once with a .22-caliber gun.

Sharp, who reappeared after the investigation began and was
questioned by police, is wanted as an accessory to the murder, as
is Rene Lopez-Fregozo, 21, of Texas.

Margis said detectives do not believe Sharp was truthful during
a two-hour interview last week.

"Quite frankly, there wasn't enough evidence to hold her,"
Margis said, adding that she has since disappeared again.

The murder weapon, which has not been found, could be in one of
the teens' possession, police said. Also missing is the Campos
family's white Chevy Tahoe.

Campos' stepfather and mother ---- Jose and Maria Seym ---- are
also suspected of being accessories to the murder and were arrested
late Thursday.

The Seyms are not believed to have been at the home when the boy
was killed.

"Right now, the parents are being held as accessories, so their
role would be regarding their activities after the homicide," said
Hemet police Capt. Tony Margis.

Police believe Rios was murdered the night of Nov. 15 or early
Nov. 16 and his body burned to hide the crime.

Officers following up on a missing-persons report filed by Rios'
mother searched the Bluejay Way home and found human remains in the
backyard.

Hemet Police Chief Richard Dana said the remains are believed to
be Rios, although they have not been positively identified.

Gang task force members are looking into whether one or both of
the boys were associated with gangs, but they have ruled out a love
triangle as a possible motive, police said.

"Obviously this is a particularly disturbing crime," said
Assistant District Attorney Chuck Hughes. "Burning a young man's
body to hide a crime shows a definite inhumanity."

Margis said authorities believe people may have been called to
the home after the murder to help dispose of the body.

"We believe that there were six people in that house either at
the time of the murder or close thereafter," Margis said. "There
may be more. We're still working on identifying everybody who was
in that house throughout that time period."

Campos had lived in the home for the last two months with his
parents, but neighbors said the home had been vacant for about a
week before the night of the bonfire.

Police have never confirmed that the house was vacant and have
said they believed that the teens originally gathered there to
watch a football game, indicating there was some sort of television
hookup at the home.

The investigation began Nov. 16 when Rios' mother, Elodia Lopez,
went to find her son, after being told that he was seen at the
Bluejay Way home the night of Nov. 15. Rios had apparently gone to
the home to watch a football game with Campos.

Lopez found a sneaker that resembled her son's shoe, and the
sneaker had "some sort of dried reddish" substance on it, according
to Margis.

Detectives found a shallow grave and the remains, Margis
said.

They also found drag marks in the backyard.

Examination by a specialist determined that the remains were a
right foot that had been attached to the leg as the body was burned
but was severed after the charring.

"I'm not sure if just the fire caused the severing," Margis
said, adding that he did not believe that butcher knives found at
the scene had any blood on them.

"We will get to the bottom of it," he said.

Earlier this week, police said the families of both boys have
been cooperating with the investigation.

According to court documents, police who searched the home found
a machete; a .22-caliber spent shell casing; bicycles; a shovel;
butcher-style knives; a gas canister; burnt pieces of what looks
like clothing; a partially burned T-shirt; pieces of rope; a sock;
a yellow metal hoop earring; and a Hemet police department ticket
issued to Jose Campos.

Police said a man suspected in the death of 17-year old boy whose body was incinerated in a backyard bonfire was located.
Officers said 21-year-old Rene Lopez-Fregozo was found late Friday in a home on the 2500 block of Highway 74 in Perris. Lopez-Fregoso was taken to the Hemet Police Station and was interviewed
by detectives for several hours. Lopez was released pending further
investigation. Police are still looking for Jose Campos, 17,
in connection with the killing of Adrian Rios. Campos's girlfriend,
17-year-old Felicia Sharp is also being sought. Campos's
stepfather and mother, Jose and Maria Seym, were arrested late Thursday
on suspicion of being accessories to murder, said Hemet Police Capt.
Tony Margis. Charred human remains were found in a shallow
grave in the backyard of their home on the 1400 block of Bluejay Way on
Nov. 18. Police also found a machete, butcher knives, a bullet casing,
burnt clothing and an empty gas canister at the home. Police
said they believe the charred remains are those of Rios, who was last
seen at the home, although the remains have not yet been positively
identified. Police are awaiting the results of DNA testing on some of
the remains, including a severed human foot, which could take several
weeks. Detectives said Rios was shot to death and set on fire
in an attempt to conceal the crime. They said Rios is believed to have
been murdered with a total of six people present during or just after
the crime. "We do believe that he was murdered and he was
murdered prior to being placed in the fire pit and burned. There was a
number of people at the residence, either at the time of the murder or
immediately thereafter. There were more than six people that arrived at
that location," said Hemet Police Chief Richard Dana. Hemet Police Capt. Tony Margis said the Seyms are not believed to have been at the home when Rios was killed. "Right now, the parents are being held as accessories, so their role
would be regarding their activities after the homicide," Margis said. Campos, Rios and Sharpe were all initially reported missing last month,
having last been seen at the home Nov. 15. Neighbors said there was a
bonfire with a foul stench at the home that night. "It was a horrible, very bad smell," said neighbor Matthew Miller. Police said they believe Adrian Rios was murdered the night of Nov. 15
or early Nov. 16. Police following up on a missing-persons report filed
by Rios's mother searched the Bluejay Way home and found human remains
in the backyard. Police have not determined a motive or
recovered a murder weapon. However, they are looking into whether the
murder was gang-related. Shortly after the remains were
discovered, Sharpe walked into a Hemet police station with her mother,
where she was questioned and released. She has since disappeared again.
Police have not commented on what Sharpe may have told them about the boys. Campos had lived in the home for the past two months with his parents,
but neighbors said the home had been vacant for about a week before the
night of the bonfire. Police said the two suspects are armed
and dangerous. If you have any information on the suspects'
whereabouts, you're asked to call Hemet Police at (951) 634-3046.

The mother and stepfather of a teenager suspected in the murder of
another teen, whose charred remains were found in Hemet, are to be
arraigned Monday on charges accusing them of being accessories after
the crime.
Adrian Rios, Jose Campos, and his girlfriend, Felicia Sharp, all 17 and from Hemet, were reported missing Nov. 16.

Charred remains that were later determined to have been those of Rios
were found two days later in a fire pit behind Campos' home on Bluejay
Way.
Sharp surrendered to authorities Nov. 26 and was questioned and released before disappearing again.

She is now wanted in connection with the murder, along with Campos, who authorities believe shot Rios. He is also at large.

On Friday, another suspect in the case, Rene Lopez-Fregozo, 21, of
Texas, was found in the Perris area. He also was questioned and
released.
Meantime, Campos' stepfather and mother -- Jose Juan
Seym, 29, and Maria Alvarado Seym, 45 -- were arrested and booked on
suspicion of felony accessory to murder, and are to be arraigned Monday. Both are being held on $1 million bail.

The Seyms are not believed to have been at the home when Rios was killed.

"Right now, the parents are being held as accessories, so their role
would be regarding their activities after the homicide,'' Hemet police
Capt. Tony Margis said Friday.
Police believe Rios was murdered the night of Nov. 15
or early Nov. 16 and his body burned to hide the crime. Police
following up on a missing persons report filed by Rios' mother searched
the Bluejay Way home and found human remains in the backyard.
Margis said people may have been called to the home after the murder to help dispose of the body.


"We believe that there were six people in that house either at the time
of the murder or close thereafter,'' Margis said. "There may be more.
We're still working on identifying everybody who was in that house
throughout that time period.''

The mother and stepfather of a teenager arrested in the murder of another teen in Hemet were free today.

Jose
Juan Seym and Maria Alvarado Seym, arrested Friday and booked on
suspicion of accessory to murder, were freed Monday. Suspects can be
detained only 72 hours without being charged with a crime.

The
couple were arrested in the death of Adrian Rios, whose charred remains
were found in a shallow grave at the home the Seyms rented.

"We
didn't file any charges at this time, and we'll continue to evaluate it
as the investigation continues," John Hall of the District Attorney's
Office said.

Maria Seym, who had some driving tickets, paid fines for a seat belt violation and speeding and was released.

Adrian
Rios, Jose Campos and his girlfriend, Felicia Sharp, all 17 and from
Hemet, were reported missing Nov. 16. Rios' remains were found two days
later in a fire pit behind Campos' family's home on Bluejay Way.

Police said they believe Campos, who is being sought, shot Rios with a .22-caliber gun before the body was burned.

The Seyms, who are the parents of Jose Campos, were arrested Friday and held over the weekend.

Police said they did not believe the Seyms participated in the killing.

Another
man who had been sought, 21-year-old Rene Lopez-Fregozo, was questioned
Friday and released. Police believe Rios was murdered the night of Nov.
15 or early Nov. 16.

Police following up on a missing persons
reported filed by Rios' mother searched the Bluejay Way home and found
human remains in the backyard. Sharp is being sought for further
questioning. She was initially reported missing with the other, then
turned up at her mother's home and was questioned Nov. 26. Police did
not book her for a crime.

DNA testing shows the charred
human remains found in a Hemet backyard last month are those of
17-year-old Adrian Rios, the Riverside County Coroner's Office said
Tuesday.
Adrian Rios, Jose Campos and his girlfriend, Felicia Sharp, all 17 and from Hemet, were reported missing Nov. 16.

Rios' remains — two feet and some bone fragments — were found two days later
in a shallow grave behind Campos' family's home on Bluejay Way.

Police have said they believe Campos shot Rios with a .22-caliber gun before
the body was burned and the bulk of his remains taken elsewhere.

Police said they believe Rios was killed the night of Nov. 15 or early Nov. 16.

Police following up on a missing person report filed by Rios' mother searched
the Bluejay Way home and found the human remains in the backyard.

A couple who rented the home was arrested but later released because no
charges were filed against them. Police said they did not believe the
couple participated in the killing.

Another man who had been sought was questioned and released.

HEMET — A murder charge was filed Thursday against a 17-year-old
fugitive suspected in the shooting death of a teenage boy whose charred
remains were found in a backyard fire pit.
A $2 million warrant was previously issued for Jose Manuel Campos, who also is charged with a gun offense.He disappeared the night after a huge bonfire was spotted at a home on Bluejay Way on Nov. 15.Partial remains were found at the scene, and DNA evidence confirmed the victim was Adrian Rios, 17.Investigators believe the teen was shot with a .22-caliber gun before his body was set afire.No
others have been charged in the case, but the investigation is
continuing, according to John Hall of the Riverside County District
Attorney's Office.Rios'
mother reported him missing Nov. 16. She did so after going to the
Bluejay home where her son had been seen and found what looked like his
sneaker, according to investigators.Authorities
are still searching for Felicia Sharp, described as Campos' girlfriend,
who disappeared after being questioned, then released, by police.A
third person — Rene Lopez-Fregozo, 21 — was located Dec. 4 at a home in
the 25000 block of Highway 74 in the Perris area, questioned, then
released pending further investigation, according to Hemet police Capt.
Tony Margis.Neighbors
recalled a powerful stench emanating from the Sunday night bonfire,
which was set after several youths gathered at the house, reportedly to
watch a football game.Campos'
stepfather, Jose Juan Seym, 29, and the boy's mother, Maria Alvarado
Seym, 45, were arrested Dec. 3 and detained on suspicion of felony
accessory to murder. They were later released and no charges have been
filed against them to date.Sharp
was initially reported missing along with Campos and Rios in
mid-November. She showed up with her mother at Hemet police
headquarters on Nov. 25, after Rios' remains were found.She was questioned and released, but hasn't been seen since.“Quite frankly, there wasn't enough evidence to hold her,” Margis said.Campos
apparently had lived at the home on Bluejay Way, but neighbors said the
family moved out about a week before the bonfire.Margis said police believe at least six people were at the house around the time Rios was killed.When
Rios' mother, Elodia Lopez, found her son's sneaker at the residence,
she noticed that it had “some sort of dried reddish” substance on it,
according to Margis.Detectives subsequently found a shallow grave, two feet and other bone fragments, Margis said.They also found drag marks in the backyard.

The Riverside County district attorney's office has filed one
count of murder against Hemet resident Jose Manuel Campos, 17, in the
shooting death of Adrian Rios, whose body was burned in the back yard
of Campos' home last month.

The murder count against Campos was
filed in Riverside County Superior Court on Thursday. The criminal
complaint also alleges that Campos discharged a firearm, killing Rios.

The
investigation conducted by the Hemet Police Department revealed that
Campos and Rios were at the Bluejay Way home on Nov. 15 when the
alleged murder took place. Officers found charred human remains in the
back yard of the home. DNA testing confirmed that the remains were that
of Rios.



Campos is still missing, as his girlfriend, Felicia Sharp.

A $2 million warrant has been issued for Campos' arrest.

No one else has been charged. The investigation into Rios' alleged slaying continues.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Campos can call Hemet police detectives at 634-3045.
