Victim's half brother named as suspect 

After sheriff’s deputies first found the body of 20-year-old Tyler Daniel Hanks near his home in Cambria on Aug. 26, they took Hanks’ older half brother, Brandon Noble Henslee, into custody for a parole violation. Thirty-three days later, they named Henslee as the primary suspect in Hanks’ murder and will be recommending that the DA press charges, officials said on Sept. 28.

Henslee was released from Atascadero State Hospital in May, and a source close to the family told New Times that Hanks had been acting as Henslee’s primary caretaker.

The murder is believed to be an isolated incident, but because the investigation is ongoing, sheriffs will provide no further comment.
