Hit and Run Killer Remains Elusive

It was around 8:55 pm October 4, 2015 when Tobias J. Carlile, and his wife were walking a bike along the right side of road at the 1400 block of Elkhorn Boulevard in the town of Rio Linda. Tobias was straddling his bike while his wife walked to the right of him as they both were walking eastbound when a vehicle veered into the bike lane. The vehicle hit the forty year old married man killing him moments later. His wife was not injured in the incident. An interesting note is that there were no skid marks where Carlile was hit and the driver did not slow down.

There were several hit and runs In Rio Linda around the time of Carlile’s death. In June of the same year, a woman named Kathy Ann Anthon was hit and killed as she rode her bicycle on Dry Creek Road. That case is still unsolved. No description of the driver or the car has been released to the public.

A grisly scene was found when the 26 year old college student was found murdered in his bedroom. He had been both shot and stabbed to death.

Another Victim of the Manson Family?

charlesmansonCult leader Charles Manson is one of the most infamous criminals of the 20th century. The Cult Leader had a group of followers that may have been responsible for 35 to 40 possible murders. Manson and several of his soldiers were convicted of slaughtering actress Sharon Tate and six other individuals in two highly publicized murders that occurred on the evenings of August 9th and 10th of 1969. Manson and several of his followers were convicted and sentenced to death. The death sentences were eventually commuted to life in prison by the United States Supreme Court. Manson was never convicted of directly killing anyone but ordered the killings and several others.

ronaldhughesOne possible death could be that of Attorney Ronald Hughes. He was an attorney that represented Manson follower (and murderer) Leslie Van Houten. He ran afoul of Manson because he tried to implicate Manson as ordering Van Houten to kill and take the responsibility away from his client. Allegedly Manson issued a threat to Hughes and during the trail for Van Houten for her role in the Labianca Murders, Hughes disappeared. He had gone camping with some other friends in an near Sespe Hot Springs in Ventura County.

On March 29, 1971, the severely decomposed body was discovered by two fishermen in Ventura County stuck between two giant rocks in a gorge. No manner or cause of death was ever determined but it is possible that Hughes drowned. However, members of the Manson family have confessed that he was murdered by Manson family members. Charles Manson, has never admitted responsibility for the crime.
