Lake Havasu City Police have arrested two people and are looking for a third person in last week's shooting death of former Lake Havasu City resident Stacy Hakes. Police are looking for Brian William Robinson, a 6-foot-4 man who goes by the name "Tree" and has an amputated right arm. He has multiple tattoos on his chest, including the letters "BERDOO" across his stomach. He has short brown hair and green eyes. Police believe he's in the Tucson area.

Police announced Tuesday that officers had arrested Adeline Rea, 31, and Ramon Canas, 44, on suspicion of first-degree murder. It wasn't clear when the arrests were made. During their initial court appearances, Rea and Canas were held without bond and transferred to the custody of the Mohave County Sheriff's Office.

According to Arizona Courts, Adeline Rea has had several arrests for driving under the influence. The most recent charges were in February 2020.  Canas' past charges include theft, dangerous drug possession, drug paraphernalia possession, and taking an identification belonging to another person.  Robinson has previously been charged with attempted dangerous drug possession/use, according to the courts.


Earlier: Lake Havasu City Police say officers have made arrests in last week's killing of former Havasu resident Stacy Hakes.

Hakes, 37, was found dead in his car early Easter Sunday at a home in the 400 block of Sunfield Drive.

No additional details have been provided but police said they expect to release more information later today. Police said last Wednesday that officers were pursuing several leads in the case but had been tight-lipped on the details to avoid harming the ongoing investigation. They said at the time they didn't believe the shooting was a random event.

Hakes lived in the Phoenix area but he grew up in Havasu and was apparently visiting friends and family for the holiday weekend.

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe account has raised $10,545 for Hakes' family. The fundraising page can be found at https://tinyurl.com/StacyHakes

One less racist we gotta worry about!


Excuse me.. you must not know one thing about who your talking about. Stacy was one of a kind that's for sure. You must just be someone who stacy probably knocked out and your still butthurt. If you actually knew him you would know what a great guy he was. He was like a brother to me and I can't even believe he's gone. He may of sometimes of been a lil bit cocky but that's what made him who he was. And for him to be taken right when he was getting his future started is so eeffed up. He will always have a place in my heart.
