Illegal Alien Charged With Horrific Murder In California

BURNEY, CA (KRCR) – An investigation into the murder David Wick, a gas station attendant in Johnson Park, has led to the arrest of a Burney man.

On Thursday, around 12:30 p.m., detectives with the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office, Major Crimes Unit arrested Juan Manuel Venegas, 39, based upon evidence collected and identified during the month long investigation. Venegas was arrested at his residence on Telecaster Lane in west Redding.

Venegas was arrested on an arrest warrant for the murder of David Wicks.

In December of 2016, David Wicks was lit on fire with a flammable liquid by a suspect wearing a yellow suit while he worked at the Rocky Ledge Shell, Johnson Park.

The incident was recorded on the store’s surveillance and the suspect was seen riding up to and away from the store on a black beach cruiser style bicycle. Wicks subsequently died and the incident was deemed a homicide by law enforcement.

In the days after the homicide, deputies and detectives with the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office, and other allied agencies and volunteers conducted searches in the area.

During these searches, several pieces of evidence were located in Johnson Park that detectives believed were related to the suspect. These items were collected and sent to the California Department of Justice for DNA analysis. As a result of the DNA analysis of different pieces of evidence, Venegas was identified.

Detectives also served a search warrant at the residence looking for additional evidence related to Wick’s murder. Venegas was booked into Shasta County Jail without bail.

“I think the community is at ease, but the sad part is no matter who we catch…our friend David Wicks will not be back,” Devinder Sahota said. Sahota is one of the owners of the Shell gas station, where Wicks was set on fire.
