Parks superintendent killed in Northern Calif park 

Police in Northern California are investigating the shooting death of a parks superintendent whose body was found in his bullet-riddled car on a park road.

A park employee came upon 59-year-old Steve Ebert's car around 6 a.m. Monday in Hagan Community Park in Rancho Cordova, an eastern suburb of Sacramento. The vehicle's lights and engine were still on, and there were numerous bullet holes in the driver's side door.

Ebert was the superintendent of the Cordova Recreation and Park District who oversaw maintenance of 38 parks.

No suspect has been arrested, and police declined to discuss a possible motive.

Park district facilities are closed Tuesday as employees cope with the killing. Interim administrator Doug Critchfield told the Sacramento Bee ( that business will resume Wednesday, with increased security at district offices.
