    CA - Galen May, 69, murdered in his Antelope home, 28 Aug 2010

    Galen Joseph May had a passion for horses.
    So great was his love for them that even after retiring from 31 years of barn work he shepherded promising thoroughbreds all over the country for Northern California's most prominent trainer.
    He also had a penchant for gambling, and Sacramento County sheriff's detectives are investigating whether that played a factor in his death.
    Deputies found May, 69, dead in his Antelope apartment Saturday afternoon after a concerned neighbor noticed May's front door ajar and a body lying on the floor.
    There were no immediate signs of trauma, nor evidence of forced entry into the Watt Avenue apartment, said sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Tim Curran. The coroner's office ruled the death a homicide Monday.
    Exactly when and how May was killed remain a mystery. A motive, too, remains elusive, although detectives are interested in learning more about his gambling.
    May was known to frequent Thunder Valley Casino especially on "Silver Senior Wednesdays," Curran said.
    "We believe he was there last Wednesday," the spokesman said. "We're asking anyone who knew him at Thunder Valley to give us a call so we can talk about his habits."

    Detectives also are searching for May's car, a black, 1999 Toyota Solara with a California license plate of 4FRH715.

    Pretty much the same information with an additional picture Mr. May and his missing vehicle.

    From March 2013:


    They batted around the word "obvious" outside the courtroom Tuesday – as in, there was no question about the verdict that took very little time for a Sacramento jury to reach in finding Juan Carlos Orozco guilty in the Aug. 26, 2010, torture-and-robbery murder of Galen Joseph May...

    Judge Greta Curtis Fall scheduled his sentencing for April 19. That will be another proceeding with a fairly obvious outcome: life in prison with no chance of parole.
