Homicide detectives have made an arrest in the death of a man whose body was found near a Sacramento sidewalk over the weekend.

Michael Lee Langley, 56, was arrested on suspicion of murder.

He is suspected of killing a man whose body was found Saturday with signs of trauma in a planter near the sidewalk on S Street, between 13th and 14th streets.

Homicide detectives and the department’s Crime Scene Investigation unit responded to the scene.

Investigators believe the dead man was a “transient.” He has not been identified by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.

Langley was spotted Tuesday near the 1100 block of Seventh Street in Sacramento. He was detained without incident and interviewed by homicide investigators prior to his arrest.

Assaults took different forms with some of the people on the current list of the Sacramento region's most-wanted fugitives. The robbery was more of a straight-forward affair for the week of June 19-24, 2017.
