Curry’s death was immediately labeled as suspicious after obvious signs of trauma were found on his body. Also, Curry’s car was missing from the driveway.

Investigators soon discovered that Curry had invited a family in need to live at his home. Police allege that this family eventually started to take advantage of the elderly man, stealing his property and money.

An online ad was then found by someone trying to sell Curry’s stolen car. The ad helped lead detectives to the suspects: 37-year-old Michael Moreno, 35-year-old Sandy George and 19-year-old Kevin Moreno.

All three suspects have been booked at Sacramento County Jail.
