ROSEVILLE, CA – Roseville police have announced the arrest of three suspects for the murder of 19-year-old John Paul Alpert, whose body was found back in May of last year.

With some excellent detective work, and with the help of the Roseville Police Department’s transient officer, David Flood, Roseville detectives researched the community and lifestyle of cross-country freight train riders, and eventually identified potential suspects.

Their investigation ultimately led to the issuance of Placer County arrest warrants for the trio. Kenner was arrested by local authorities in Farmington, New Mexico. Carrillo and Anauo were arrested by the Nebraska City Police Department in Nebraska. The three are being held without bail on suspicion of homicide and are awaiting extradition back to Placer County.

Gunther said in a statement, “Roseville detectives extend their thanks to the Placer County District Attorney’s Office, Union Pacific Railroad Police Department, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, the California Department of Justice, the Farmington (New Mexico) Police Department, and the Nebraska City Police Department for their assistance with this case.”

It all started on May 15 2013, when someone fishing in Dry Creek near Atkinson Street found the body of Alpert near the creek bed.  Roseville Police detectives and crime scene investigators examined the scene and collected the remains.  It appeared the person had been dead for a few months.

John Alpert

By all accounts Alpert was a responsible man who had never been in trouble with the law.  He lived at home with his parents and was attending community college.  In March of last year, he left Palmdale to travel north with a group of illegal freight train riders.

Alpert had never illegally ridden the rails before and soon after his departure he stopped communicating with his family. Concerned for his safety, his family reported him missing to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office on March 25.

On March 10 Alpert posted on his Facebook page, “im at the crossroads and for the first time, im scared.”

Detectives determined that Alpert arrived in Roseville on a freight train between March 16 and 17, where he met his death near a freight train rider’s encampment.  His body had unexplained injuries consistent with blunt force trauma, and detectives have classified his death as a homicide.

In November the Roseville Crime Stoppers offered a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in the murder of 19-year-old John Alpert.
