2KELLY Arcadia police are looking for a man they believe bludgeoned his brother to death.

The body of Brian Kelly, 47, was found by Arcadia police officers about 5:20 p.m. Wednesday at an apartment in the 800 block of Fairview Avenue, authorities said.

Evidence collected during the course of the investigation connected Kelly’s younger brother, Michael Thomas Kelly, to the killing, said Arcadia Police Chief Robert P. Sanderson.

Police have a felony warrant for the 44-year-old's arrest.

Detectives ask anyone who may spot Kelly to immediately call 911, and anyone with information on the crime or the suspect's whereabouts to call them at (626) 574-5150.
