The address of the scene of the crime is the 3700 block of Bolivar Avenue. This murder was a not your usual perpetrator, and the Sacramento County Sheriff's Office sent a unit to check out the call hoping that the victim would still be alive.
What the police saw when they arrived in the scene of the crime was the grandfather, who was found unconscious with apparent hits made by the bat, used by the caller as the murder weapon.
The specialist fire personnel were called in an attempt to revive the older victim. Later he was taken to the hospital where he expired, due to the bludgeoning sustained from the bat used to kill him cruelly.
The sheriff's office commented that the deceased is 78-years old. Authorities did not verify if the elder man is indeed his grandfather.
