Sacramento authorities are investigating the death of a man whose body was found dangling outside a downtown building. At some point Monday morning, it appears the man tied a rope around himself, authorities said. However, he was tied in seated position like a rappeller. The rope was tied off with a window washing anchor, and fire officials believe that that anchor could have held his weight. But they don't think he was a window washer. Around 7:45 a.m., a person in another building reported seeing the man hanging near 12th and K streets.

The death of a 5-year-old Davis girl who was found dead in her mother's car trunk was officially ruled a homicide, coroner's officials announced Friday. Her mother, Aquelin Crystal Talamantes, 29, was arrested Sept. 26 after she drove to a family member's apartment in Sacramento from Davis with her 4-year-old son. Her daughter, Tatiana Alexia Rose Garcia, allegedly was in the trunk, local media reported. Her relatives called police after becoming concerned when she arrived at the apartment with the boy but not her daughter, authorities told the Sacramento Bee.   Soon after Sacramento police arrived, they discovered Tatiana unresponsive in the trunk of the car. With the help of neighbors, first-responders tried to revive her. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

More than a year after a 13-year-old girl was found brutally beaten and stabbed to death in a Sacramento park, authorities said they have arrested a man in connection to her death. Sacramento County sheriff's detectives announced Thursday that DNA evidence led them to arrest Ryan Douglas Roberts, 23, on suspicion of killing Jessica Funk-Haslam, who was found dead March 6, 2012, from a stab wound, blunt-force trauma and asphyxia. Authorities said he wasn't even on their radar until DNA collected at the scene matched his. “We knew pretty early on we had a foreign DNA sample there and it was our obligation, obviously, to figure out who it belonged to,” said Det. Tony Turnbull.

Comedian Katt Williams avoided jail Thursday when he was sentenced to 90 days of community service after pleading no contest to misdemeanor reckless evasion of an officer in Sacramento. The original sentence was 180 days in county jail, according to the Sacramento Bee , but the judge converted it to the community service stretch with the other 90 days stayed if he does the work and stays out of trouble. The charge was originally a felony vehicle code violation. PHOTOS: Celebrity mug shots The chase that sparked the charge occurred last November, during a rough patch for the comic as he played dates on the West Coast and bumped up against the law repeatedly along the way. Driving a three-wheeled Can-Am Spyder motorcycle, Williams led police on a chase through sidewalks and walkways in downtown Sacramento after they approached him on a disturbing-the-peace complaint, Fox40 News reported at the time.
