Sacramento Good Samaritan allegedly killed by family he helped


A family a 77-year-old south Sacramento man police say took in and helped has been arrested for his murder.

The body of Leo Curry Jr. was found by Sacramento police inside of his home on the 4000 block of Shining Star Drive on Nov. 17. Officers were checking on Curry's welfare after being contacted by the victim's own family who hadn't been able to reach him. Curry had sustained trauma to his body.

As detectives took over the case, they learned Curry had been helping a family and invited them into his home. The police investigation alleged the family, identified as Michael Moreno, 37; Sandy George, 35, and Kevin Moreno, 19, began stealing money and belongings from Curry.

One of the missing items, Curry's vehicle, had been reported missing from his driveway by neighbors. Investigators discovered Curry's vehicle had been advertised online and sold after his death. Detectives traced the posting and transaction to the suspects.
