ALISO VIEJO, Calif. (AP) — An explosion that ripped through a Southern California day spa killed the owner, and investigators Wednesday were looking into whether she was targeted in the crime.

Authorities declined to publicly say if they believed the spa owner was targeted, but one official briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press that she had been the intended recipient of an explosive package.

Remnants of an explosive device were found inside the badly damaged spa where the powerful explosion Tuesday afternoon shook the city of Aliso Viejo, about 50 miles (80.5 kilometers) south of Los Angeles, and tore a corner off the building that houses medical offices. Two patrons were seriously injured.

Do we have another mail bomber on the loose? Or, is this an isolated incident? According to the article, the owner was living with her estranged husband, so it might be personal too.

Could be the start of something. Mailing bombs is a very unusual way to kill someone...especially making sure it doesn't go off prior to the intended target.

UPDATE
The FBI has arrested a person of interest in this bombing case. A business acquaintance of the victim.


ALISO VIEJO, Calif. – A business acquaintance of the woman killed in a Southern California office building explosion has been arrested on suspicion of possessing an unregistered destructive device, the FBI said Thursday.

The arrest of Stephen Beal, 59, an actor in several short films who neighbors said liked rockets, followed a search of his Long Beach residence by authorities, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said in a statement.

Eimiller stressed that Beal was not being held in connection with Tuesday's explosion. She said he was expected to appear in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana later Thursday and that no additional details would be available until a federal criminal complaint is issued.

Looks like the "person of interest" has now been charged in the bombing.


The ex-boyfriend of a woman who was killed in an explosion in a Southern California office building on Tuesday has been charged by federal prosecutors after two improvised explosive devices (IED) were found in his home.
