Second Body Found In Burned El Cajon, Calif. Home

August 23, 2011  | 

El Cajon (Calif.) Police SWAT officers found a second body Monday in the burned-out home that became the scene of a dramatic officer rescue that was captured by a local news cameraman.

A first body was found Sunday, and authorities believe the two bodies are those of Kevin Collier, 32, and his mother-in-law, Beverli Rakov, 51. Because the bodies are burned beyond recognition, a medical examiner will release final confirmation. Collier's 14-month-old daughter, Rhilee Jean Collier, was found dead in his trunk.

El Cajon PD's Officers Jarred Slocum and Tim McFarland responded Sunday to a call from a neighbor of a man brandishing a gun. After arriving at the scene, Collier fired at the officers, striking Officer Slocum in the neck. Officer McFarland then pulled his partner to safety.
