By: Penne Usher, Telegraph Correspondent
FOLSOM, CA - The man found dead near a trail in Folsom on Sunday has been identified as the husband of a woman murdered the same day in Mariposa County. Mariposa County Sheriff's Department officials confirmed that 21-year-old Sean M. Russell was the husband of homicide victim Tiffany Russell. Sean Russell reportedly committed suicide before his body was found by law enforcement Sunday afternoon. Local law enforcement agencies evacuated the Negro Bar area around Lake Natoma early Sunday and began an extensive search for a suspect wanted in connection with a Mariposa County murder. The suspect's abandoned truck had been found by employees of Sudwerk's restaurant and reported to State Park rangers. When they ran the license plate, they discovered the truck was registered to the murder suspect. The body was discovered a few hours later.
