Yesterday afternoon, the Angel City DA’s office charged August Damas with two counts of first degree murder. Damas, known also as Le Philanthrope , was taken into police custody on March 5th with the assistance of a man calling himself Gentleman Gadget Guy. Within hours, ACPD charged Damas with the attempted murder of Mayor Tacitus Vox .
Officials now believe he was behind the recent murders of actor Martin Freeman and businessman Richard Tourmaline. Police have revealed that hand-written calling cards had been left at both crime scenes. After comparing these with a sample of Damas’s handwriting, the District Attorney’s office added two charges of murder against the French national.
A trial date has not yet been set.
