ANAHEIM, CA — A man who crashed into Kylie Jenner’s gate last year confessed to the stabbing death of a homeless man in Anaheim, and police have also linked him to a second murder.
Anaheim police say that Marvin Magallanes walked into the station and voluntarily turned himself in for the January murder of Sabah Alsaad, 49, who had been stabbed to death in January.
Detectives used forensic evidence to link that crime to a similar killing in October, the murder of Onosai Tavita, 52, who was also homeless.
They had made that link about a week before Magallanes turned himself in. Detectives say that while they believed the same suspect committed both murders, they were not able to identify the killer until Magallanes confessed.
Magallanes was on probation for an incident last June, when he crashed his car into the gate of a Calabasas home where Kylie Jenner had recently lived. He later entered a guilty plea and in September was sentenced to 10 days in county jail, police said.
Police are now reaching out to other agencies to see if Magallanes is involved in other open cases.
