The Pima County Sheriff’s Department on Friday released the name of the third man found dead Monday at a former luxury resort.
Fred Anthony Kahale, 27, was found dead at El Diablo Ranch, 8600 W. Old Ajo Highway.
Two others – resident William Lee Blankinship, 72, and night watchman George Ernest McCumber, 60 – were found fatally shot on the ramshackle ranch property.
An autopsy of Kahale was completed Friday, but the cause of death was “undetermined,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Nicole Feldt said in a news release. Results from the toxicology tests may take up to eight weeks.
Kahale had driven to the ranch from southern California in a rented Chevrolet Suburban with an empty trailer in tow, sheriff’s Detective Lt. Michael G. O’Connor said in earlier reports.
He said Kahale was wearing a bullet-resistant vest and had four pipe bombs in the vehicle, which were deactivated by a bomb squad.
Notes inside Kahale’s vehicle indicated he intended to take valuables off the property, authorities said.
