The Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department has released new information on a murder that has remained unsolved for the last four years, with the hopes it may lead to a suspect.
The case is of the fatal shooting of Steven Losey, 25, on Feb. 17, 2015. Around 8:30 p.m. the night the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department was dispatched to the area of Santa Fe Avenue and Berkeley Road, just outside of Turlock, for a report of a person shot. The first deputies to arrive at the scene found Losey in a truck with a gunshot wound. Losey was rushed to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries.
Losey’s gunshot wound was first reported by witnesses who had seen him driving erratically before crashing on the shoulder of Berkeley Road. The scene of he shooting was found not too far from where Losey’s truck went off the road.
The sheriff’s department released new information Thursday that a blue Honda sedan was seen driving in the area at the time of the shooting and detectives believe this car may have been used by the shooter.
Just after 9 p.m. that same night, sheriff’s detectives learned that a second victim had been admitted in to a hospital in Merced County with a non-life threatening gunshot wound. At that time a sheriff’s spokesman said it appeared that the second shooting victim was linked to the homicide, but no other details were ever released.
Anyone with information on this case or the Blue Honda can leave
an anonymous tip by calling Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636 and may be
eligible for a cash reward.
