LAKE TAHOE (CBS13) – The Placer County Sheriff’s Office is looking for any evidence after a homicide crime scene in the Lake Tahoe basin was practically left empty.

“We have no idea who did this and why…we could have never imagined something like this could happen to our parents,” wrote, Robert Spohr’s daughter Adrienne Spohr, in a statement released to CBS13.
“We were sent there as a result of a 911 call with no caller on the other end,” said, Placer County Sheriff’s Lt. Nelson Resendes, who explains the open line led placer county sheriff’s to a home off of West Lake Boulevard.
“And that’s when we found the victim,” said Lt. Resendes.
Spohr was found dead from at least one gunshot. His daughter Adrienne claimed her mother is also a victim of the attack, writing, “…a man entered my parents’ home, murdered my father and attempted to murder my mother.”
Adrienne’s mother, Wendy Wood, is now unresponsive in the ICU, her father is dead, and investigators have a person of interest they want to speak to.READ MORE: Shes A Survivor: Jaycee Dugard 30 Years Later And Why Investigators Recently Questioned Kidnapper Again
“We found images of a male who was there at around the same time frame,” said Lt. Resendes.
We showed the surveillance photo released by the sheriff’s office to Lake Tahoe local Rick Brown.
“Someone with a backpack sweats and a flannel jacket on is kind of common for Tahoe,” he said.
Brown’s restaurant is just a couple of miles away from the crime scene.
“It’s not a high-crime area,” said Brown, who adds, a homicide like this one is almost unbelievable. “Very surprised to hear about the incident that happened. It’s a very tight community we all watch out for each other and everyone has concerns for each other and their well-being.”
Investigators say the community has no reason to be concerned because this likely was not a random attack.MORE NEWS: Rocklin Considers Mandating Pet Owners Pick Up Waste
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the sheriff’s office immediately.

Fully vaccinated Brits MUST be allowed to travel abroad without restrictions, says Ryanair boss
FULLY-vaccinated Brits should be able to travel abroad without restrictions, the boss of Ryanair has said.
The low-cost airline's CEO Michael O'Leary called for the government to allow UK travellers with both Covid jabs to be able to travel to Europe.4Ryanair's Michael O'Leary is calling for the government to allow vaccinated Brits to be allowed to travel abroadCredit: Alamy
He said: "UK citizens, almost 80 per cent of whom will be vaccinated by the end of June, continue to face Covid restrictions on travel to and from the European Union, despite the fact that the majority of the European Union citizens will also be vaccinated by the end of June."
"UK tourism and aviation needs a pragmatic travel policy, which permits vaccinated UK and EU citizens to travel between the UK and the EU without the need for quarantine or negative PCR tests.
"This will at least allow the UK tourism industry to plan for what is left of the summer season and get hundreds of thousands of people back to work.
Mr O'Leary said Boris Johnson's "gross mismanagement" needed to end, with the UK's successful vaccine programme needing to open up travel to the EU where some countries have lower Covid cases and increasing vaccination rates.
He also slammed the green list as being "non-existent" following the removal of Portugal earlier this month.4Brits still can't travel to most of Europe without quarantining back in the UKCredit: Alamy 4Tourists with both jabs should be allowed to travel abroad, he saysCredit: Alamy
He added: "The UK’s Covid travel policy is a shambles. The Green List is non-existent because countries such as Malta and Portugal, with lower Covid case numbers than the UK and rapidly rising vaccination rates, remain on Amber."
Earlier this month, Mr O'Leary said that the stop-start travel rules made it "very difficult" for airlines and tourism companies to make plans for the summer.
He explained: "We can't schedule the flights and then cancel them within two weeks because we have to pay compensation to customers, so it's incredibly difficult."
The end to the UK lockdown was delayed last week, with hopes that all restrictions could be lifted by June 21.
However, the prime minister has since delayed this to July 19, with no suggestion when foreign travel could be included in this.
Holidays abroad may not return before August, travel experts have warned, with both Spain and Turkey told not to expect the return of Brits before the end of summer.
The head of the Valencian Hotel Association Association (HOSBEC) Toni Mayor said he didn't expect the return of UK tourism until August after meeting with UK ambassador Hugh Elliott.
He told the Telegraph: "The overall infection levels in Spain are still high in places and the picture is uneven, so I think we will have to wait, possibly until July 20."
However, he added that resorts would need at least two weeks to prepare for the incoming arrival of tourists and capacity levels.
Turkey tourist officials have also told by the Foreign Office not to expect the lifting of UK travel restrictions before August.Most read in News TravelFARE DEALRyanair launches £4.99 flight sale with deals to Spain, Italy & FranceSTRONG ARMRow over who gets the armrest on planes finally solved - but not everyone agreesDUTCH COURAGEAmsterdam stag parties OVER - city to ban boozy tourists and 'penis outfits'BEST OF BRITAINTUI launches more UK holidays and experiences this summerPAIN IN SPAINSpain warned of FIFTH Covid wave putting holidays this summer at riskTOK OFFPassenger slammed for blocking people trying to leave flight - to film TikTok dance
Only Gibraltar, Iceland and Israel are open to Brits with few restrictions, with some flight and holiday bookings soaring.
