File # G221130003


On April 23, 2022, about 12:31 AM, Norco Sheriff’s Station Deputies were dispatched to a call of an unresponsive male adult in the 1400 block of 6 Street, city of Norco. Upon deputies’ arrival, it was determined a 29-year-old male was deceased. The case was immediately assumed by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Overdose Death Investigations and Narcotics Unit (ODIN). It was determined the decedent, Isaak Quintin Ruiz (29), was a victim of a Fentanyl poisoning. The investigation continued and a suspect, Jacob Parr, a 43-year-old resident of Norco, was identified as being responsible for selling the Fentanyl that killed Ruiz.

On July 12, 2022, Parr was located and taken into custody by ODIN personnel without incident. Parr was later booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center for Murder.
