A “murder warrant” has been issued for a man now identified as a suspect in the slaying of three family members near Palmdale earlier this month, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department announced Wednesday night.
Sheriff’s investigators released this photo of James “Todd” Brown on Jan. 17, 2018.
An investigation began when three adults and three dogs were found dead in a home on West Avenue N 12 on the afternoon of Jan. 13 after a sister of one of the victims went to the home to celebrate her brother’s birthday.
The three were identified as 78 year old Richard Gardner II, his wife, 56 year old Pepper Gardner, and his son, 52 year old Richard Gardner III. He lived on the property for about two years, working odd jobs to make money, said Lt. John Corina of the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.
Corina said investigators believe Brown was apparently involved in a dispute with the family, and that it escalated.
The suspect is described as white, with brown and gray hair, and brown eyes, according to the sheriff’s bulletin. He is about 6 feet tall and weighs approximately 265 pounds, according to the bulletin. 14, 2018. (Credit: KTLA)

“Just wonderful people. And it’s just their lives got taken away too soon.” said Mary Dean Ronin, who was related to the victims.
Friends told KTLA that the son had moved in to help care for his father, who was bedridden after several strokes, and worked as a window washer in the area. They remembered Richard Gardner III as a kind and funny man who liked to carry out pranks and regularly attended church.
