Remains of second body found at Lennox 'drug house'

Sheriff’s investigators found the remains of a second body at a suspected "drug house" in Lennox on Saturday, four days after unearthing the body of the 53-year-old homeowner.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Edmundo Hummel said the unidentified remains were found about 3:45 p.m. Saturday at the house in the 4800 block of West 112th Street. 

The first body, found Tuesday, was identified as James Daniel Stein, 53. He and his wife had been missing. Authorities could not confirm whether the second body was hers.

The Sheriff’s Department describes Marcos Lomeli, 26, as a person of interest in the case. He is in custody on unrelated charges of robbery and carjacking, Hummel said.

everything one does in life comes back to them one way or another.. karma.. no matter what someone was involved in, no matter what one does or did, nobody deserves to be killed. nobody has the right to take somebody elses life.. i didnt know them personally but i do know people that knew them. this isnt right at all.
