The man suspected in an apparent murder-suicide on the UCLA campus had a “kill list,” and a second victim named on that list has been found dead in Minnesota, Los Angeles Police Department Charlie Beck said Thursday.
Mainak Sarkar, a resident of Minnesota, is believed to have fatally shot UCLA Professor William Klug on the university’s Westwood campus before turning the gun on himself Wednesday, according to LAPD.
Based on a note found at the crime scene, authorities performed a follow-up investigation at the former UCLA Ph.D student’s residence and Minnesota, where they found an alleged “kill list” with multiple names on it, Beck told KTLA during an interview Thursday.
“Professor Klug’s name was on that list, as was another UCLA professor who was alright,” Beck said.
He declined to give the professor’s name.
A female’s name was also on the list, prompting investigators to go to her home in a nearby town in Minnesota. The unidentified victim was found deceased by gunshot wound at the residence, Beck said.
