Nearly three months after a teenager was killed in Lake Elsinore's "Presidentials" neighborhood, two people are being bars in connection with the slaying.
Thursday, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department announced Fernando Moreira Aresta, 44, and a 16-year-old male juvenile -- both of Lake Elsinore -- were taken into custody after arrest warrants were issued in connection with the slaying of Bobby Henderson, 16. Aresta was located in Riverside and the juvenile was found in Corona, according to a news release from the department.
It's not clear if the pair are related; police are not releasing the juvenile's identity.
According to jail records, Aresta is being held on suspicion of murder and assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm. Police have not publicly confirmed Henderson's cause of death.
No bail amount has been set for Aresta, who is due in court Aug. 26, according to jail records. Information on the teen suspect is not immediately available.
“Upon the officers' arrival they discovered two victims at the location,” Borja said.
The teen, later identified by Patch as Henderson, was found on the ground with serious injuries, the other person, an adult male, sustained non-life-threatening injuries, Borja said.
Both were transported to an area hospital, but the boy died from his injuries, the lieutenant explained.
According to a Riverside County Coroner's Office report, the boy's injuries occurred at 11:34 p.m. on May 26; he was pronounced dead at 12:06 a.m. the following day.
