SAN FRANCISCO — Police have arrested three suspects in the death of a Quebec woman last week in California and plan to charge them with murder later today.

The body of 23-year-old Audrey Carey, who was on a solo backpacking trip, was found in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.

The suspects were accused in Carey’s death after they were arrested in connection with the shooting death of a Steve Carter, a yoga teacher in Marin County, whose body was found along a hiking trail Monday just north of San Francisco.

Police say the suspects — 23-year-old Morrison Haze Lampley, 24-year-old Sean Michael Angold and 18-year-old Lila Scott Alligood — were arrested in Portland, Ore., after authorities allegedly tracked them travelling in the victim’s car.

Carey’s family this week described the young woman from Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu as someone who was full of life and loved by all.

The family statement on Tuesday thanked those who expressed sympathy and support and asked the media to respect their wishes to mourn in privacy.

Carey was believed to have attended Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, a three-day music festival that ended on Saturday. Police identified her after finding documents on her as well as a cellphone that was located near the body.
