Playing Suspect Arrested for Killing Dad Who Was Camping With 2 Daughters: Cops

A burglary suspect who has been charged with killing a camper in California over the summer is now being linked to 10 other shootings, according to authorities.

Anthony Rauda, 42, has been charged with one count of murder in connection with the killing of 35-year-old Tristan Beaudette, who was camping with his 2- and 4-year-old daughters in Malibu Creek State Park in June when he was fatally shot.

The park was closed temporarily after the murder.

Now, police are saying that he is linked to 10 other shootings in the park over the past two years. Rauda allegedly shot a man who was lying in a hammock in the park in Nov. 16, 2016, and a week later he shot into another car. In 2017, he allegedly shot into vehicles on three separate occasions, but no one was injured.

He is also charged with 10 counts of attempted murder and five counts of second-degree burglary. He allegedly lived off stolen food and police called him a “survivalist,” according to local station KCBS.

Rauda was arrested in October in connection with a string of burglaries that allegedly occurred in 2018. At the time of his arrest, he was allegedly carrying a rifle in his backpack on a ridge top.

Police have said there have been no more seemingly random shootings since he has been in custody.

He is being held on $1.1 million bail. He is expected to appear in court again on Jan. 23 and has not yet entered a plea.
