How two Douglas County deputies tracked down the suspect in four Northern Nevada murders

Nothing about the pale pink house on the residential street stuck out as different when Douglas County Sheriff’s Detective Ryan Young got out of his car at 1439 James Road in Gardnerville.

With lavender bushes dotting the landscaped front yard and a wind chime hanging from the white porch, it could’ve been almost any home in the picturesque town at the foot of dramatic snow-covered mountains 50 miles south of Reno. 

But inside that home was the first victim in a killing spree that would claim four lives and traumatize Northern Nevada for days. 

The case of Connie Koontz, 56, found dead in her house on Jan. 10, was the first murder investigation Young, 32, would lead since joining the sheriff’s department in 2007.

UPDATE: Suspicious death in Madera County ruled homicide – KFSN

A driver traveling down a dirt road in Madera County on Friday morning saw something out of the ordinary behind this home. He called 911 after realizing it was a body.

Vineyards and a few scattered buildings make up the barren landscape around Avenue 9 and Road 22.

So when a call came in about a death, detectives say they were immediately suspicious.

“It’s a very rural area, not very much traffic, the house they found him behind was abandoned, nobody was living in it,” says Tyson Pogue on the Madera County Sheriff’s Office.

Pogue says the victim appeared to be deliberately hidden.

His name hasn’t been released, but they believe he was in his 20s or 30s.

His body has visible injuries.

“It’s very important that if anybody saw any vehicles that were parked in the area or anything they thought was out of the ordinary, even the smallest details might be important,” Pogue says.
