.San Diego police arrested 36-year-old Anthony Padgett on Thursday on suspicion of murder, attempted murder and arson and identified him as the sole suspect in all four attacks.
The San Diego County district attorney's office said Monday that police did not submit the case for prosecution. It says the investigation continues into the attacks on four homeless men over four days last week - three of whom died
Padgett was convicted of setting a homeless man on fire in 2010. Looked like a solid suspect in the 3 recent, similar killings, until he was released.
Many feel that the San Diego DA office is making a mistake.
You'd think that a guy who lists setting homeless people on fire as a hobby would warrant spending a little more time in jail, but this is California, land of the muy loco.
