Cops: Cal Fire Chief May Have Used Another Escort To Escape After Murdering Woman

ELK GROVE (CBS13) — A Cal Fire battalion chief suspected of murder and still on the run may have gotten help escaping from someone on an escort website.

Cal Fire Battalion Chief Orville Fleming has yet to be found six days after the death of 26-year-old Sarah Douglas.

The most recent developments in the case shine a different light on Douglas—that of a high-priced escort.

“We do know she had been advertising on Redbook as an escort in the past,” said Sacramento County Sgt. Lisa Bowman.

In fact, deputies say that’s how Douglas met her boyfriend and accused killer. The site connects escorts with customers, and even allows customers to write reviews about the services.

But the site’s involvement doesn’t stop there.

“We have information that he has most likely reached out to someone in the community of,” Bowman said.

Investigators believe Fleming was likely picked up by someone he met on the site when he ditched his Cal Fire truck in Elk Grove just minutes after he allegedly stabbed Douglas to death.

“If he can commit such a heinous and violent murder in the way that he did, we’re concerned for the public,” Bowman said.
