    • Two teenagers charged in man's slaying
      By Kim Minugh -- Bee Staff Writers, Published September 2, 2006

      Two Sacramento teenagers will be arraigned Tuesday in connection with last weekend's murder of a 62-year-old Los Molinos man whose body was dumped in the American River Parkway.
      Eric Jacob Ramsey, 17, and Candis Florence Lewis, 16, will appear before Judge Emily E. Vasquez after being charged Friday in Sacramento Superior Court with killing Rondal Raimer.
      The Bee is naming the pair because they are being tried as adults.
      That brings to 26 the number of teenagers arrested this year on suspicion of murder in the Sacramento area. Lewis is the first female.
      Raimer's shirtless body was discovered Monday in a tangle of blackberry bushes along the bike trail under Highway 160, near Del Paso Boulevard. He was wearing jeans and a new pair of cowboy boots. His wallet was missing.
      His 1995 Chrysler Concorde was found in flames on the side of Highway 99 in south Sacramento less than 24 hours later.
      Sacramento police investigators believe Raimer was the victim of a robbery gone bad.
      They don't think he died where his body was found, but the crime scene has not yet been identified, said Officer Michelle Lazark.
      Officials reportedly told Raimer's family that his time of death is thought to be Friday night or Saturday morning.
      Authorities are not sure what Raimer was doing before he was killed.
      Family members said he frequented the Sacramento area on weekends without sharing much information about his plans, other than when he would return Sunday.
      "We don't know who he went to see or if he even saw who he went to see," said Dick Wolf, who is married to Raimer's twin sister, Kay.
      There does not appear to be any connection between Raimer and the suspects, Lazark said. She was not sure of how the suspects are linked to each other.
      The two were arrested just after 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the 2200 block of Northview Drive -- about a mile from where Raimer's body was found.
      Wolf, Raimer's brother-in-law, said news of the arrests was helping the family cope.
      "Of course it's not going to bring Ray back, but hopefully justice will be served," he said.
      He expressed both disbelief and sadness at the age of the suspects.
      "They've screwed up their own lives and a bunch of people's up here, too," he said, "just for a couple of bucks."

      **SSDI has his death date as 8/28/06, which was a Monday.
