44-year-old Nelson Fermin Garibay fled after the attack in the 14400 block of Marwood Street January 11. Deputies arriving to a reported assault with a deadly weapon encountered Garibay’s wounded brother who fingered his sibling as the suspect, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
The brother led deputies to the wounded 73-year-old stepfather and 65-year-old mother, both of whom suffered significant head trauma, the Information Bureau said.
Both stepfather and mother were declared dead at the scene. The 37-year-old brother was hospitalized for injuries considered not life-threatening.
Garibay fled in a green 2001 Toyota 4Runner featuring license plate 4RHH063.
