Suspect Wanted in Double Homicide Near Sebastopol Arrested by Ukiah PD
The location of the double murder on Sexton Road in Sebastopol, in the Sonoma Wine Country
SANTA ROSA – According to a Community Bulletin issued by the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, just before 9:30 am on Monday, November 23, a man reported that he believed his nephew had just killed his brother and sister-in-law at a residence outside of Sebastopol. The man reported seeing the couple covered with blood on the floor of a house on Sexton Road in the Twin Hills area outside of town. The man said he had also seen his nephew covered in blood.
Deputies and paramedics responded to the scene at 1220 Sexton Road. The California Highway Patrol provided support with their helicopter, H30. The first responders found a man and woman unresponsive. They had both suffered multiple wounds from a sharp object, and the likely weapon was found within the home. The couple was declared deceased at the scene. Detectives from the Violent Crimes Investigations unit assumed control of the case and other detectives assisted, including a CSI team.
The suspect was identified as Nathan Alexander Wilson, a 34-year-old man who lived on the property with his parents. He was last seen near a shed on the property, but had likely left the area in his dark gray Toyota truck. Law enforcement agencies were notified to be on the lookout. Deputies and detectives went to the addresses of family and friends, and also checked out locations where he was known to frequent. He was known to carry weapons and to be very strong. He was described as having a thin build, 6’1”, brown hair and green eyes. The victims were identified as 66-year-old David Wilson, and 60-year-old Adrienne Chapin, parents of the suspect.
At approximately 4:30 pm, a citizen contacted the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office and reported seeing Nathan Wilson’s truck parked along Tomki Road in the Redwood Valley area of Mendocino County. Deputies found the truck empty and searched the immediate area for the suspect on foot.
Soon thereafter, Ukiah Police Department contacted a man matching Wilson’s description who was walking on a street near MendoMill Hardware and Lumber. Wilson lied about his name but they identified him by the driver’s license found in his pocket. He was then taken into custody without further incident. He is being held in the Mendocino County Jail and awaits extradition to Sonoma County to face charges in the murder of his parents.
