One of three Isla Vista stabbing victims identified as Rodger's roommate

Santa Barbara District Attorney Joyce Dudley has confirmed one of the three men found stabbed to death in the Capri Apartments at Isla Vista was 20-year-old Cheng Yuan Hong.

Hong was one of three men found stabbed to death in the complex. The identities of the other two men have not been released.

Dudley says she received confirmation from the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Office Hong's next of kin has been notified of his death.

Dudley says Hong was involved in a case involving stolen candles. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office mentioned that case at a Saturday press conference, saying Rodger contacted the sheriff's office, reporting his roommates had stolen candles.

Hong was charged with petty theft, and Dudley says he pled guilty.
