In The News: Arrest Made In Natomas Couples’ Murder

The Sac Bee is reporting police have arrested a suspect in the slaying of a Natomas couple last week.

Matthew Riley is accused of killing his parents, Steven, 54 and Linda, 53, found slain in their home. He has been arrested on suspicion of two counts of murder.

An excerpt of the article:

Matt Riley, 30, had told police that he found his parents with multiple stab wounds last Tuesday afternoon when he stopped by their home on Paddle Wheel Court.

Steven Riley was an information systems analyst at the California Public Employee’s Retirement System and Linda Riley worked as a pension program manager at the California State Teachers’ Retirement System.

Colleagues and neighbors spoke highly of the couple, saying they doted on their two granddaughters, who are Matt Riley’s children.


  1. What a sad story. I live in the Riley’s neighborhood, but never knew them. I am very sorry for the family, but glad to hear that someone was arrested in the case. How awful for the daughter in-law and the grandchildren.

  2. Thanks, Buzz, for keeping us up-to-date on this one. Bless their souls.
