Homicide detectives with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office are seeking the public’s help to locate 25 year old Rahmad Kerel Parke.

He may be transient and is known to frequent the City of Fresno and Los Angeles County, specifically the communities of Santa Monica, Van Nuys and Sherman Oaks. Parke is described as black, 5’10”, 185 lbs. with brown eyes and black hair. He may have facial hair.

On the morning of Thursday, January 6th, 2022, deputies responded to a call of an injured person located at a home on the 5100 block of E. Tulare Ave. in Fresno. Deputies discovered a deceased man in the front yard and a deceased woman inside the home. They have been identified as 90 year old Mel Abdelaziz and his daughter, 58 year old Melba Abdelaziz. The two lived together as she was providing medical care for her aging father who had served 70 years as a church pastor.
