Fugitive Orville Fleming Arrested

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department finally apprehended Orville Fleming, a suspect who they have been reportedly trying to catch since the beginning of this month for the murder of his 26-year-old girlfriend, according to an official press release.

Orville “Moe” Fleming, 55, was reportedly apprehended and arrested at approximately 12 noon on Friday, May 16, in south Sacramento County. He was reportedly booked into the Sacramento County Mail Jail on a no-bail warrant for murder.

Fleming reportedly spoke with homicide detectives and has claimed responsibility for the assault on his girlfriend, Sarah Douglas, that led to her death.

According to Sac Sheriff, Fleming was spotted by a detective from the Sheriff’s Fugitive Bureau exiting a bus, and was contacted and detained without incident. Since his apprehension, detectives have reportedly determined Fleming was mostly likely living in local vegetation for the past 15 days since the murder, leaving occasionally during the night to seek food and water. Detectives reportedly do not believe Fleming reached out for or received assistance during the time he was considered a fugitive.

According to an official Sac Sheriff press release issued on May 1, at 9 am that day the Sacramento Sheriff’s office received a report of a deceased person inside a residence in the 9300 block of Fox River Way. Douglas had reportedly been found dead in the home she shared with Fleming around 8:55 am by her sister, Stephanie Douglas. Also in that press release, Sac Sheriff reported they were seeking Fleming in connection to the murder of Douglas.
