During a press conference Thursday, authorities in California revealed the names of the four suspects who’ve been charged with kidnapping and murdering Tushar Atre last fall — and two of the men worked for the Santa Cruz-based tech and cannabis executive.

Santa Cruz County Sheriff Jim Hart announced that Kurtis Charters, 22, Joshua Camps, 23, and Stephen Lindsay, 22, were detained Tuesday morning in Southern California.

All four suspects face murder and kidnapping charges, according to Hart.
