Suspects sought in case of man found dead in van

Police are looking for two suspects in the death of a 49-year-old small-business owner who was found in a van outside his home near the Glen Park BART station.

Leonard “Milo” Hoskins was found dead in a van outside his home on Feb. 1. He was reported missing by family members to Oakland police in December.

Hoskins spent much of his life as a software engineer at several Bay Area companies, according to his résumé, posted on the Web site of his business, Skwishie Stuff Co. The Web design business was run out of his home.

Police homicide inspectors obtained a $5 million arrest warrant for Richard Carelli and a $1 million arrest warrant for Michelle Pinkerton.

According to police, the suspects lived in an in-law unit in the victim’s house and fled San Francisco on Jan. 25 in a white 1996 Mercury Mystique, with California plate 5VIB951. They are traveling with two young children, Viana Lee Carelli, 6, and Faith Carelli, an infant.

The suspects are considered dangerous. Police said they may be in Santa Cruz, the Las Vegas area or Mexico.

A memorial will be held Thursday at the Oakland Zoo.
