Deputies ID father fatally shot at California camping site

Deputies ID father fatally shot at California camping site”

An investigation continues into who shot and killed Tristan Beaudette during a camping trip with his two little girls at Malibu Creek State Park in Calabasas last week. Beaudette's stepfather says the girls aren't old enough to understand what happened.

Beaudette was taking his daughters, 2 and 4, on a short trip so his wife, Erica Wu, could have a quiet night at home to study for exams, reports said. He had taken the children camping so that she could prepare, according to a GoFundMe page set up to support the family.

"Not a second goes by that we aren't grappling with the senselessness of this crime", reads the GoFundMe page.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is still investigating, the Los Angeles Times reported.

However, the death has baffled United States authorities with no leads, no suspect and no motive. The children were not hurt in the shooting, the newspaper reported.

As of Monday morning, investigators were looking at several unsolved shootings in the area to catch the culprit, but no suspects have been taken into custody.

According to his LinkedIn page, Beaudete was an associate director at the pharmaceutical company Allergan. But he was "happiest out in nature, and spent every chance he could hiking, biking, snowboarding and camping with his family", his family said in a statement to The Washington Post.

In a statement on Sunday, Mr Beaudette's family called him a "supportive and generous husband" and a "scientist who loved cooking and microbrews". "The grief and trauma this loss has caused our close-knit family is indescribable", his family told the Times.

'They were about to embark on a new chapter in their lives.

California State Parks spokesperson Tony Hoffman told CNN affiliate KABC that the campground would remain closed for the next week in the interest of public safety.

A GoFundMe account set up on behalf of his wife has raised more than $65,000.

The murder mystery involving a father who was gunned down while camping with his two young daughters in Calabasas is only widening.
