Who Was Tristan Beaudette?
Tristan Beaudette used to work at Allergan, a pharmaceutical company, as a researcher and developer. He was 35 years old, and he was married to his high school love, Erica Wu, and they had two daughters; one was two years old, and the other was four years old.
Tristan was a very caring father and a husband who loved to cook and go out in nature, and in his free time, he used to go on hiking, camping, and biking. It was during this accursed camp out misfortune took place upon him, and grief took over his family and friends.
It was June 22, 2018, at around 4:40 a.m., law enforcement received reports of a gun blast at the Malibu Creek State Park in California. Tristan was enjoying himself with his beloved daughters while Erica decided to stay back in the home with some family members to cram for a test. When Tristan was asleep inside his tent, he was shot in the chest and was confirmed dead at the scene. Fortunately, his daughters were unscathed.
Who Killed Tristan Beaudette?
At the scene, there were not a lot of pieces of evidence present at the scene. Moreover, the investigators confirmed that none of the residents saw anyone coming into the camp during or around that time. An incentive was offered for any facts leading to the capture or a possible lead or the aim of the killer.
No information was gathered in the next few months because of the lack of evidence and suspects, but there was a pattern which police noticed, there were multiple random shootings in the area starting in November 2016. Later, in October 2018, the police conducted an operation related to the armed suspect.
The police tracked down a man named Anthony Rauda, who has been stealing food from multiple places in the region, and he recently stole food from a vending machine at the local community center. Anthony Rauda was taken into custody, and during his time of arrest, he had a sniper rifle with him.
Anthony Rauda had a number of criminal charges on him, and his criminal record began back in the year 2006. He was sent to prison in December 2018 for weapons violations as well as parole violations. The investigators believed that Anthony was liable for the several shootings in the area, which began in November 2016 when he executed a man named James Rogers, who was shot while asleep in a hammock on the playing field.
It was only after a week when someone shot into the resting area of a parked automobile. Anthony was also charged for multiple acts of burglaries that occurred in the area. The authorities believed that Anthony used to live in the wilderness, and he surfaced when he required food and money.
Where Is Anthony Rauda Now?
After Anthony was arrested, he was charged with murder, ten attempted murders, and five charges of second-degree aggravated break-ins. The investigators stated that they compared the sizes of the bullets from Tristan’s body and the other shooting incidents with ammo Anthony has had with him and with the resemblance in comparison to the bullet size they charged him with those acts.
As per the show, his case would be delayed until he could find a suitable lawyer. There were questions related to Anthony’s financial strength for the trial. For now, he is in custody, and he has maintained his innocence. Since there has been no trial, we can not say what penalty will be given to him.
