Carrillo Street Murder Still a Mystery


Santa Barbara police made no arrests nor have released any new information regarding the 2/19 shooting death of 21-year-old Ventura resident Kelly Hunt near the rear entrance of Santa Barbara High School on Carrillo Street. Hunt — a member of the Crazy Wino gang in Ventura — was well known to Ventura law enforcement authorities. His shooting has ignited a subdued storm of speculation whether his slaying was an intentional execution or just a case of the wrong person being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
