Local authorities have issued a be-on-the-lookout for a suspected murderer out of Sacramento who is known to frequent the Sierra Mountains and may be in Inyo or Mono counties.
Orville “Moe” Fleming is a CalFire battalion chief and is wanted for the May 1, 2014 murder of his girlfriend, Sarah Douglas, 26. According to law enforcement authorities, Fleming is considered armed and dangerous. “He is known to have a .45 caliber pistol and a .25 caliber pistol that are unaccounted for,” a wanted poster issued by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department states.
Fleming is 6’1”, weighs 190 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He also has two tattoos on his upper left arm. Law enforcement authorities also said it is likely that Fleming has cuts to one or both of his hands, “injuries that he sustained during the murder that should require bandages.”
“It is believed that Fleming has fled the immediate area in an unknown vehicle,” the Sacramento Sheriff’s press release states. “He is an avid outdoorsman and frequents the Sierra mountains, Santa Cruz Mountains and the Yosemite Valley.”
As a CalFire battalion chief, Fleming has keys to fire gates, trails and CalFire facilities throughout the state and it is believed those keys remain in his possession.
Fleming has not been seen since last week. His CalFire truck was located May 1, the day of the murder, in Elk Grove, a few minutes south of the site of the murder.
Anyone who may have seen Fleming is asked to call law enforcement immediately.
