    No one has never been arrested or charged in the case. The case became more complicated when the first detective on the case, Damacio Diaz was arrested and convicted of federal charges.

    Sorry, this is the first thread I've started. I should've began with this article.

    A father with custody of his four young children died Monday morning after he was discovered wounded in the front yard of a northwest Bakersfield home near Columbia Elementary School, police and his attorney said.

    The victim was Matthew Odom, 28, according to his family law attorney and his employer.

    Police called the death a homicide, but didn’t reveal many details of how Odom died.

    The authorities were called to the 9400 block of Waterbury Drive south of Brimhall Road at 6:35 a.m. Monday, according to Bakersfield police.

    The first officer arrived five minutes later and found a man “suffering from traumatic injury” in the front yard.

    The man was transported to a hospital but did not survive his injuries, police said. He was declared dead at the hospital.

    Murder of California Father Matt Odom Remains Unsolved

    Matt was on his way to work as an electrician in the early morning hours of September 15, 2014. He had called his boss around 5:30 a.m. saying he was running a little late.

    What happened next remains a mystery. What is known is that the 28-year-old was discovered in his front yard, covered in blood. It did not appear to be a robbery, as nothing was taken from the home.

    So, who would have killed Matt?

    Bakersfield Police have never officially named a suspect, frustrating Matt’s family.
