Video broadcast of a man outside his home
Video of a “person of interest” has been released as investigators search for clues to a mysterious attack that killed a former Bay Area resident at his Lake Tahoe home and left his wife in serious danger hurt.
Surveillance video released Thursday by the Placer County Sheriff’s Office shows a man allegedly seen near the home of Gary Spohr and Wendy Wood on Lake Boulevard in the Homewood area.
At around 10 p.m. Saturday, June 5, MPs responded to a 911 call in which no one was speaking on the other end of the phone. At home, they found Spohr, 70, dead from a gunshot wound.
A family statement said Wood, 68, is unresponsive in a hospital’s intensive care unit, Sacramento says KOVR TV channel.
“We are horrified. We could never have imagined that something like this could happen to our parents. We are desperate to find justice for them, ”said the statement from Adrienne Spohr, a Bay Area woman who is the couple’s daughter, who previously lived in Orinda.
The family are looking for video or other footage that may show the suspect, who was said to have been walking between Tahoe City and Homewood on Saturday afternoon and evening. They are asking that all information be passed on to Placer County Sheriff’s investigators.
