Oxnard Police Make Arrest In Los Angeles For Local Murder Case

Posted on Friday, December 9, 2011 12:04pm

Oxnard police detective say they’ve made an arrest in connection with the murder of a man in the city last month.

John Henry’s body was found in a sand dune area near Fifth Street, and Harbor Boulevard November 26th.  The 52-year-old man had been fatally stabbed.

Detectives identified another Oxnard man, 49 year old Dominc Luiz Rice, as a suspect.  They discovered he was in Los Angeles, and arrested him yesterday in the city’s Wilshire District.

Detectives are being tight lipped about the case, and aren’t releasing further information, like what they think may have been the motive for the slaying, or if others were involved.  Authorities say both men were transients.
