HEMET (CBSLA.com) — A suspect in a double murder investigation is in custody Thursday after being detained by Tijuana police.

Elisha Samson Chiles, 37, was arrested at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday by Tijuana police officers, and turned over to Hemet police investigators at the border, officials said.

Chiles was booked on two counts of murder and is being held on $1 million bail.

Two women were found dead inside a home in the 1200 block of South Buena Vista Street just before 5 a.m. Wednesday. The identities of the victims were withheld pending family notification, and Hemet police investigators say the investigation is ongoing.

No further details were released.

Anyone with information about the murders or Chiles can call Hemet police Investigator Doug Klinzing at (951) 765-2423.
