Opening statements commence tomorrow in Santa Ana for the special circumstances murders of Elizabeth Ann Palmer and Matthew Francis Scott in Feb 2009. Hilbert Pineil Thomas of Garden Grove, who lived 500 yards from where the victims worked is accused of 'deciding to murder the employees in order to steal a car'. While he was passing on the way to take a child to school, no less. He seems to have been caught because he handed in the murder weapon to Los Angeles Sheriff's dept. http://www.orangecountyda.com/home/index.asp?page=8&recordid=3854&returnurl=index.asp?page=8 I thought there would already be a thread for this case, but I couldn't find one. Excuse me if I've just missed it.
