Police Discover Grisly Mystery Involving Family’s Murder in Quiet California Neighborhood

REEDLEY, California – Four members of the same family were tragically found dead at two adjacent houses earlier this week, shocking the community. A 17-year-old neighbor has been charged with four counts of homicide in this devastating case. The Reedley Police Department described the case as a “complex puzzle,” as it unfolded in their quiet neighborhood.

The horrifying discovery began when the bodies of Billy Bonds, 81, and Guadalupe Bonds, 44, were found in their home on South Church Avenue. Shortly after, the body of Billy Bond’s son, Darrell Bonds, was found in a shallow grave. The police then appealed for help in locating Guadalupe Bond’s husband, Matthew Bonds, who was reported missing and deemed at-risk.

During the investigation, police executed three search warrants, which led to the arrest of a 17-year-old boy from an adjacent house, along with two others, on charges of accessory after the fact. It was during this search that police found the body of Matthew Bonds in a detached garage, with signs of trauma.

Reedley Police Chief Joe Garza described this crime as one of the most heinous in his 30 years of service. He emphasized that the investigation is ongoing and that the 17-year-old suspect did not act alone. The suspects remain in custody, except for two who were released on bond.

The Reedley Police Department is committed to actively pursuing all leads, as they continue to investigate this heartbreaking case. The recent arrests represent significant progress, but their work is far from over in bringing justice to the victims and their grieving loved ones.
