Husband of Housekeeper Arrested In Los Angeles Catholic Auxiliary Bishop’s Shooting Death

David O’Connell, a Los Angeles Auxiliary Bishop who was discovered dead in his Hacienda Heights residence on Saturday, has been the subject of an arrest.

Carlos Medina, 65, a resident of Torrance, is the person of interest in the high-ranking Catholic bishop’s death, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna. During a press conference on Monday afternoon, Luna said Medina is the husband of O’Connell’s housekeeper and that Medina had “done work” around the residence before.

“Detectives were told by a tipster that they were concerned because Medina was acting strange, irrational and made comments about the bishop owing him money,” Luna said.

The sheriff said Medina drove an SUV similar to one surveillance footage showed in the bishop’s driveway for a short time on the day O’Connell was found.  Authorities were alerted Medina had left Los Angeles County Sunday, and a warrant was issued for his arrest, Luna said.

Two firearms were recovered from Medina’s residence, Luna said, and detectives will examine the firearms to determine if they were used in O’Connell’s death.
The housekeeper, who was not working at the residence on the day O’Connell’s death was discovered, has been contacted by authorities, the sheriff noted.

“She’s been fully cooperative and assisting the detectives with all the information they have,” Luna said. Homicide detectives arrived at the home in Hacienda Heights, about 15 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, Saturday afternoon to respond to a “shooting death investigation.”

Luna said a deacon went to O’Connell’s home to check on him because O’Connell was late for a meeting, and the deacon alerted authorities.
