Categories: 2014 Homicides

See Update No. 2 at the bottom of Page 2 on the sheriff's department stressing San Juan Capistrano is safe. Update No. 1 had deputies confirming the victims' I.D.s.

Andra and Bradford Sachs, R.I.P.
ORIGINAL POST, FEB. 10, 9:48 A.M.: Orange County sheriff's homicide investigators this morning are probing a double homicide in an upscale San Juan Capistrano neighborhood.

An "unknown trouble" call to dispatchers shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday led to a hillside home in the 32000 block of Peppertree Bend and the discovery of two bodies. Neighbors identified them as Brad and Andra Sachs, a divorced couple who still resided together in the home.

The couple's 8-year-old son was taken to Mission Hospital from the 9,600-square-foot home for treatment of serious injuries but is expected to survive, according to sheriff's Lt. Jeff Hallock, the department spokesman.

It is believed the violence was confined to the home and nearby residents are not in danger, although authorities add this does not appear to be a murder-suicide. A security code is needed to enter the Sachs' home, but there was no sign of forced entry. The cause of death has not yet been released.

The couple's high school-age teen daughters were home when first responders arrived, but they were unharmed and one of them may have placed the initial 9-1-1 call. The couple, described as being in their 50s, also had two sons away at college.

Crime-scene investigators finished their work around 3 a.m. today, Orange County
Sheriff's Lt. Steve Gil, a watch commander, told City News Service.

A neighbor who described herself as one victim's best friend told a KCBS/Channel 2 news reporter the Sachs were a loving couple and she can't imagine anyone who would want to do them harm. But some tenants who rented space from the couple in a commercial business building nearby suggested they were very much disliked, according to the KCBS report.

Ken Baum, who has rented office space at one of the properties the Sachs own for the past two years, elaborated for KABC/Channel 7. Report on the next page:

Very sad and tragic.... found info below from State Board of Equalization document via internet, a source of serious millions issues for the Andra Sachs:

"In May 1998, Flashcom sold 22,500,000 Flashcom shares to appellant and Mr. Sachs in exchange for services both provided to the company. Appellant’s then-husband served as the Chief Executive Officer 4, and appellant was Chief Marketing Officer of Flashcom until July or August 1999, when according to her, "I was fired by my ex-husband."5 On February 8, 2000, appellant and Flashcom entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement whereby Flashcom agreed to purchase 1,612,903 Flashcom shares held by appellant for $9,000,000, under the following stipulation stated in the Stock Purchase Agreement:

"[t]he purchase and sale of the Common Stock shall take place at the offices of Stradling, Yocca Carlson & Rauth, Counsel to the Company, in Newport Beach, California, at 5:00 p.m. on February 11, 2000 or at such other time and place as the Company and Seller shall mutually agree."


The immediately succeeding language in the Stock Purchase Agreement states:"

Murdered...seriously?? people are sick. also, so sad that the child has injuries...even if the parents are douche-bags...leave the kids out of it, they didn't be asked what parents they wanted. Murder and violence are not the answers to problems

"Dirt" on the deceased may provide clues to solve their murder brainless.
