1 min read

Three suspects have been seized in connection with the dead teen’s case who was found in a ditch on rural Dixon.

The body of the 19-year-old Oakland resident was seen by a local in the area of Dixon Avenue West and Nunes Road on Tuesday morning, based on the Solano County Sheriff’s Office that later knew the suspect as Danny Trask.

The sheriff’s office at that time stated that the probe on the teen’s death is classified as a kind of “suspicious.”

Investigators, however, said the “circumstances in which the victim was found” make them think that foul play has something to do with the teen’s death.  

A suspect in the case was identified by the sheriff’s office detectives. Later, the suspect was found and flagged while driving north of Sacramento.

Those who were on board the vehicles were subjected to an interview.

According to the sheriff’s office, it searched the suspect’s residence and vehicle through the authority of a warrant.

Evidence related to the case was recovered, which backed the arrest of Mynard Simpson, 34.

A murder charge was filed against him.

Also charged were 38-year-old Nicole Samosa and 22-year-old Amani Jones who were suspected to have served as accessories for murder. They face $25, 000 bail, KRON4 reported.

According to the sheriff’s office, the homicide was classified as an isolated case.
