The officials further wrote that Alberto is the brother of Jesus Manuel Salgado who is the main suspect in the kidnapping and killing of Aroohi Dheri, Jasleen Kaur, Jasdeep Singh, and Amandeep Singh. It is reported that 41-year-old Alberto Salgado was detained for criminal conspiracy, accessory, and destroying evidence. Jesus Salgado attempted suicide before and was treated at a hospital before being jailed. It’s unknown if the Salgado brothers have a lawyer who can represent them.

Jesus Salgado, 48, was detained on October 4 when Merced County police discovered surveillance video of him at an Atwater, California, bank, several hours after a California family had gone missing. He matched the description of the man who was observed at the scene of the abduction of Amandeep Singh, 39, his brother Jasdeep Singh, 36, Jasdeep’s wife Jasleen Kaur, 27, and their eight-month-old child, Aroohi. Further investigations have disclosed that Jesus used to work for the Singh brothers at one point and even had a longstanding and nasty dispute with them.

According to the deceased family, Salgado sent angry messages and emails to the Singh family in 2021. The investigation seems to be ongoing as the officials are trying to find more clues and shreds of evidence in the case. Moreover, court documents show Jesus’ violent criminal history including imprisonment for attempted false imprisonment, first-degree robbery, and possession of a controlled substance.
