A Fairfield man who was arrested for a drug violation near where a double homicide occurred in unincorporated Vallejo in May was arrested for his alleged involvement in the murders today, according to the Solano County Sheriff’s Office. Patrick Eugene Alley, 44, was arrested on suspicion of murdering Ramone Hatfield, 30, of Los Angeles, and 29-year-old Sean Pierre Riley of Santa Rosa, sheriff’s Lt. Faulkner said. Both men were shot. He will be booked in the Solano County jail on two counts of murder and held without bail, Faulkner said.
Sheriff’s deputies responded around 10:50 p.m. on May 10 to a report of shots fired in the area of Woodrow and Reis avenues. They found one of the two murder victims in the driver’s seat of a white Ford Taurus in the middle of the street near 20 Reis Ave., Faulkner said. The body of the second victim was found around midnight in the driveway of a nearby home on Reis Avenue. At 9 a.m. May 11, a woman told deputies processing the crime scene that she found a man in her garage on Reis Avenue, Faulkner said. Deputies found Alley and arrested him for possession of illegal drugs. He was booked into the Solano County jail. At the tine, Faulkner said there was no evidence linking Alley to the homicides, but Alley’s presence in the neighborhood “would be closely examined” by detectives.
