A convicted felon shot dead as he tried to rob a Torrance, CA jewelry store last week has been identified as a person of interest in the killings of an elderly Apple Valley couple, shocking the proprietor who gunned him down.
Keon Lamon Bailey, 20, of Lancaster, whose rap sheet included burglary, possession of stolen property, rape, grand theft, trespassing and sexual battery, is linked to a crime spree after he was paroled from prison in February.
