On Monday, a man walked into a California police department and told police officers he had killed four people. One of the bodies was in the man’s car, which he drove to the Mt. Shasta Police Department.

The suspect told police three other bodies were in his apartment more than 200 miles away, according to Roseville Police Department Captain Josh Simon. Roseville is about 20 miles from Sacramento and about 212 miles from Mt. Shasta.
