On Friday night, the police reported that they tracked the suspect, now identified in media reports as 48-year-old Kevin Limbaugh, through an address in a backpack that he left behind.
Chief Darren Pytel earlier on Saturday told the Vanguard there were some interesting findings inside the backpack itself, but at that point he declined to disclose them.
Chief Pytel told the Vanguard there were only routine things in the backpack – however, they found a note in his bedroom.
“This note was found in his bedroom. The stuff in the backpack was just stuff with identifying info that led to him. Nothing unusual,” Chief Pytel said.
Lt. Doroshov has confirmed that the letter was found face up on his bed.
The police have now released a single document that sheds some light but is by no means a smoking gun. Some have suggested there are more, but Chief Pytel believes this is all there is.
The single document reads: “The Davis Police department has been hitting me with ultra sonic waves meant to keep dogs from barking.”
He said, “I notified the press, internal affairs and even the FBI about it. I am highly sensitive to its affect on my inner ear.”
He concluded, “I did my best to appease them, but they have continued for years and I can’t live this way anymore.
Earlier today the media reported that 48-year-old Kevin Limbaugh was the man suspected of shooting Natalie Corona on Thursday at about 6:45 on the corner of E and 5th Streets, across the street from his rental home where he resided.
He was described as a man who lived a quiet existence until the past year.
He was ordered to surrender a semiautomatic rifle after he was convicted in a battery case. Records show that he was charged with battery with serious bodily injury. Those charges reported stem from an incident in which he punched a co-worker at Cache Creek Casino in the face during a dispute. That case was resolved as a misdemeanor.
The Vanguard will have additional updates as this becomes available.

Correction: originally reported as inside the backpack, the note was actually found in the bedroom.
