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.
The same day, in Michigan, police arrested a fourth suspect for his alleged role in Atre’s killing: Kaleb Charters, 19.
Kurtis’ brother, Kaleb was apprehended in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, and is awaiting extradition back to California.
“Four people who did an awful, awful thing are in custody,” Hart told reporters. “We have the right people.”
All four suspects face murder and kidnapping charges, according to Hart.
