Paso Robles man arrested for murder
March 14, 2015
San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s detectives arrested a Paso Robles man for the alleged murder of an Atascadero man in unincorporated Paso Robles early Saturday morning.
Deputies booked Thomas Nolan Yanaga, 52, into the San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges
that he murdered Marshall Chandler Savoy, 32, of Atascadero. He is being held without bail, according to the jail website.
Shortly after midnight, sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of shots fired at a home on the 400 block of Gahan Place. Deputies arrived to find Savoy’s body in the driveway.
A man, a woman and their teenage son were inside the house at the time of the shooting, according to a sheriff’s office news release. Though deputies are not confirming if Yanaga lives in the home, there are only two houses on the 400 block of Gahan Place, and county records list Yanaga as living in one of them.
