Investigators looking for a Cal Fire battalion chief in connection with his girlfriend’s grisly death say the man may be injured and may be suicidal.
Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies are trying to find Orville Fleming in connection with the death of Sara Douglas. Douglas was found by her sister inside her South Sacramento home Thursday morning.
Crime scene investigators say Douglas has stab wounds, but her cause of death has not been confirmed yet. There was a lot of blood at the home, and detectives believe some of it may belong to Fleming.
The Cal Fire truck Fleming was driving was found abandoned in an Elk Grove neighborhood Thursday night. Neighbors in the area say they see that truck often.
Crews spent Thursday evening looking for Fleming nearby; investigators believe Fleming is at risk for killing himself. He is likely in possession of a firearm at this time.
Anyone with information about Fleming’s whereabouts is urged to call their local police, or Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department at (916) 874-5115.
