March 13, 2020

Daniel Carrillo, 20 years old, Rohnert Park, has been arrested and charged for the homicide of Kirk Kimberly.

On November 2, 2016, Kirk Kimberly, was found buried in a shallow grave on the Sonoma State University campus. During the autopsy, a forensic pathologist determined Kimberly had been stabbed multiple times, leading to his death. Kimberly was initially reported as a missing person on October 17, 2016, to the Cotati Police Department.

For the past three years, Violent Crime detectives have been conducting follow-up interviews and reviewing physical and forensic evidence. Homicide investigations are time-consuming and detailed.

On February 28, Carrillo was transported from the California Youth Authority in Stockton, to Sonoma County for a separate pending court case. Carrillo was interviewed by detectives and booked into the Sonoma County Jail for homicide. Carrillo remains in-custody on a no-bail warrant.
