HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (KTLA) — One of two bodies found at a park in Orange County appeared to be that of a man wanted in a crime spree in Northern California, police said Wednesday.

The bodies were found by a passerby in broad daylight around 1 p.m. Tuesday amid trees and brush at Bartlett Park.

Both men had been shot to death, according to Huntington Beach police.

A witness said he saw a gun next to the bodies.

Investigators were looking into the possibility that it was a murder-suicide, police said.

Authorities were still waiting on a positive identification from the Orange County coroner’s office on both of the bodies.

One of the dead men was believed to be 32-year-old Abraham Felmley, who was wanted in connection with a double arson murder and a carjacking.

The other body appeared to be that of a homeless man who was often spotted in the neighborhood, witnesses said.

Felmley allegedly killed two male relatives Monday morning in an arson fire near Sacramento, according to the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department.

One of the victims was in his 80s and the other was in his 60s, authorities said.

Felmley fled in a truck stolen from the home, police said.  About four hours later, he allegedly carjacked a man who was fishing in Merced.

Felmley, who was believed to have sustained injuries in the alleged arson fire, had relatives in Southern California, authorities said.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Huntington Beach Police Department.
