Gerald Guy Byrne, Most Wanted Murder Suspect and Ugly Police Mugshot Model
|Gerald Guy Byrne|
I've received calls and emails from people asking if there was any movement in this case. There was a forceful shove when Byrne was arrested for an unrelated offense in Washington state. He reportedly gave police a false name, but his fingerprints linked him to the strangulation death of Samo.
As we reported at the time, a housekeeper found Samo's body in his condominium at 2522 W. MacArthur Blvd., Santa Ana, around 11:30 p.m. on July 21, 2009,
Byrne, a drifter with a long criminal record, was later identified as a suspect in Samo's murder, even landing on the Santa Ana Police Department's 10 Most Wanted list.
