California camper fatally shot while in tent with daughters

The murder mystery involving a father who was gunned down while camping with his two young daughters in Calabasas is only widening.

Tristan Beaudette, 35, of Irvine, Calif., was bleeding from a chest wound when deputies found him in a tent early Friday at a Malibu Creek State Park campsite. The man reportedly was accompanied by his daughters, ages 2 and 4. According to a GoFundMe campaign page, Baudette's wife remained at home this weekend to study for an exam she was scheduled to take the morning after her husband was killed.

"The theory we are working with is he was shot inside the tent", Moore said.

"Tristan was out doing something he adored in life being in the outdoors with his two young girls", a GoFundMe for the Beaudette family says.

Malibu Creek State Park is a vast playground for outdoor enthusiasts and a spectacular backdrop used in movies and television shows. The children were inside the tent, as well, Moore said.

Detectives said there were other shootings "near the location in the past", but there is no evidence to suggest they are connected to Beaudette's killing.

Beaudette's wife, Erica Wu, issued this statement: "Words can not express the absolute devastation and sorrow we feel from the loss of someone so dear to our family".

Police are treating Beaudette's death as a homicide but so far have no motive or suspect. The Malibu Times reports Beaudette was a scientist employed by a pharmaceutical company who had gotten his PhD in chemistry from UC Berkeley. "This was their final step before taking well-deserved time off together as a family prior to their relocation to new jobs in the Bay Area".

"Not a second goes by that we aren't grappling with the senselessness of this crime". You will be so dearly missed.

California state parks stated that as a result of the murder investigation, all camping reservations for the park have been canceled through June 28 in order to ensure public safety.
