Police are investigating the homicide of a four-year-old girl in Napa and are seeking information regarding the whereabouts of her mother and her mother’s boyfriend, according to police.

At about 1 p.m. on Saturday, Napa police responded to an apartment in the 2000 block of Wilkins Avenue for a welfare check on a young girl.

Officers entered the apartment and found the young girl deceased in a bed, police said.

Police said there are signs of foul play.

The child’s mother, Sara Krueger was last seen leaving the area on Saturday morning with her boyfriend, Ryan Scott Warner.

They were both last seen carrying luggage from Krueger’s apartment at about 10 a.m., according to police.

Neither Krueger nor Warner owns a vehicle and police have not been able to reach them on their cellphones.

Both the mother and her boyfriend are wanted for questioning in this homicide investigation, police said.

Krueger is a 23-year-old white woman who stands 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds. She has brown hair and hazel eyes, police said.

Warner is a 26-year-old white man who stands 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds. He has blond hair and blue eyes, police said.

Anyone who knows of either subject’s whereabouts is encouraged to call Napa police at (707) 257-9223. Detective Andy Hess is in charge of the investigation and anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact him at ahess@cityofnapa.org.

UPDATE: The couple has been captured in El Cerrito.

Put them away

Why, oh why, did a four year old have to die? I assume from the artucle that the little girl’s last moments were of terror at the hands of people she trusted and relied on to take care of her. May the police find them quickly. God bless the little girl now and keep her in His hands now.

Slow, painful deaths to them both, particularly him because he looks like an incredible douchebag.

4 Someone Knows February 2, 2014 at 1:47 PM

where they are, do they have cars registered to them, year/make/model. I feel like there should be the same sort of search for them as an amber alert! This is absolutely horrific!!

I hate hearing about children who are murdered. It seems it’s always the scumbag boyfriend. Why do women get mixed up with scum instead of protecting their children? I would put my child ahead of my love life.
If she had anything to do with it too, then they both need to be sentenced to life or quartered and drawn. So sad……

By the way, he looks like a real winner……(Sarcasm)

Cartman would say boil them, I think “wood chipper” would be better.

They won’t get far, and meth doesn’t help the decision making skills. Odds are mom is already dead and dad is headed to Idaho to hide out with the rest of the nazis.

10 Dorothy February 2, 2014 at 2:16 PM

Glad they were caught! I’m sure they will claim innocence due to some reason or another.

11 I am thinkin' February 2, 2014 at 2:20 PM

that there is always something strange about a woman who has more photo’s of herself on Facebook, than photo’s of her child.

12 We need to hear their side of the story February 2, 2014 at 2:36 PM

and then execute them in that olde electric chair at San Quentin. Their last earthly sense will be the stench of their own personal burning feces bursting out of their Barbecuing Bowels….

13 N.C.Biker February 2, 2014 at 2:47 PM

These two better hope they get caught, I know
many out there who would love to save the state
some time and money .

14 VikingPrincess February 2, 2014 at 4:12 PM

Good they were found.

Terrible :(

15 anon February 2, 2014 at 4:44 PM

I think I heard that the little girls Dad is in San Quentin. If that’s true, why did the Mom pick such losers?

16 Amy February 2, 2014 at 7:15 PM

Bring back Old Sparky.

17 TinFoiler February 2, 2014 at 7:35 PM

While it’s all fine and good to sound off here about what you would like to see happen if found guilty, Good Luck with that. You ALL know damn well that they will be sentenced = 3 hots & a cot, get top of the line healthcare, get an education, write a book. This is what is considered “prison” in America.
You pay for it all. How’s that taxation / representation thing workin’ for ya?

18 J. February 2, 2014 at 8:06 PM

Oh, no, the little girl was sexually abused before or after she was bludgeoned to death.

19 WC Resident February 2, 2014 at 8:28 PM

Poor dear child. I am so grateful they caught the mother and the boyfriend. This is a couple that deserve the death penalty in my opinion.

20 Veronica February 2, 2014 at 9:00 PM

The gas chamber is too kind for them. RIP dear child.

21 eyewhen February 2, 2014 at 10:12 PM

Where are these images from?

22 CLAYCORD.com February 2, 2014 at 10:16 PM

Napa Police Dept.

23 Mimi (original) February 2, 2014 at 10:26 PM

Really lady? Did u get a good look at UR “boyfriend” before u chose him over UR child? He looks like he’s hopped up on something…..

24 Wow February 3, 2014 at 12:22 AM

Sick bastards

25 blindboy February 3, 2014 at 1:09 AM

If they get put on Death row they will be alive many years. If they finally get around to putting them to death they will complain about the pain the drugs might cause them.

The little one was not given the same consideration.

26 cant believe this February 3, 2014 at 2:56 AM

#6 wow I understand if ur sticking up for fam but really? Was it ok for her to go on the run with him. Was it ok for her to leave her childs body there? I meen did she watch all of what happened happen?? She’s not a good mom. And if she was a good mom did she decided to take a break from that? I seen her fb page an I seen his. What good mom has those kind of men around the most precious person in the world to them? If u don’t like ppl talkin about ur fam then maybe they shoulda did some thing different

27 chris February 3, 2014 at 7:22 AM

How anyone can argue against the death penalty for anyone guilty of these types of crimes is beyond me.

28 eyewhen February 3, 2014 at 7:26 AM

But these pictures were released before they were found… thus Napa P.D. has dealt with these two before in order to get their picture… Mother was no good from the start.

29 Compassion February 3, 2014 at 8:01 AM

@chris, they say we can reform them in prison. Ask the ‘advocates’ who think they have all the answers. This state can’t even figure out how to perform the death penalty. How about putting them in a room, then load it with carbon monoxide? Not cruel and unusual. People do it in their garage unfortunately to commit suicide. Ask an ‘advocate’ if someone broke into their mom’s house and killed her, wouldn’t they want the death penalty.

30 my goodness February 3, 2014 at 9:37 AM

i cant find their facebook page

31 don February 3, 2014 at 11:37 AM

Put them in prison with the rest of the very bad, sick, weird, and unstable prisoners. Let nature take its course if you know what I mean.

32 @tin foolery February 3, 2014 at 1:15 PM

Geezus, dude get help soon man, really. You
sound as goofy as poster # 6!

33 Calendar Girl February 3, 2014 at 3:36 PM

How can a woman choose a creepy man over her child?

34 Sooooooooo sad for that baby February 3, 2014 at 6:49 PM

Who does “mom” think she is???? Casey Anthony???? And the low life methhead……uhhhhhhhh!!!!!! I think the dump would take him for free! What trash!!!!

35 anon February 4, 2014 at 7:22 AM

disgusting. he appears to have destroyed any oz. of decency in himself, with meth, if he ever had one. i think my commas may be misplaced.

36 anon February 4, 2014 at 7:26 AM

@32 can you expand on that thought regarding tin?

37 anon February 4, 2014 at 1:07 PM

here’s how this will play out (maybe).
she doesnt look ‘hard’ but with getting involved w/ the scum of the earth seems to say ‘desperately in need of a love, wrongly translated into a male appearing to love me’. and because she is still of the age where the frontal lobe hasnt fully developed and is mostly operating by ‘feelings’, she will break down and cooperate. hopefully. and she will wake up from this nightmare she is in. she very likely could have got stuck with this guy and couldnt get rid of him or get away from him. she will become a more broken person.
often sociopaths prey on vulnerable women desperate for a male in their life. Men, be responsible with your sperm. Choose the mother of your children wisely and be a ‘good’ father.
He, the above sote (this will stand for scum of the earth) will lie and blame her. the fact is the reason most young women get in trouble w/ the law is because of a sote.
but worse people have turned around, not from the this system of handling criminals. w/o drugs and lots of time they start to think about things and find answers and direction they’ve always needed from the bible and God becomes real to them.
