BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - In police documents obtained by 23ABC on the homicide that occurred on Silver Dollar Way in August, police say one of the juveniles arrested was paid to shoot and kill the victim.
The documents state that one of the suspects told police that the victim's father paid a teen to shoot and kill the victim because the victim, 29-year-old Jonathan Dean, had sexual relations with two female minors. The documents say one of the girls was the father's special needs foster daughter.
The father, George Dean, was Jonathan Dean's foster dad and legally adopted him at 18.
The shooting happened just before midnight on August 10 in the 7800 block of Silver Dollar Way.
George Dean is not currently in jail.
