A painstaking and detailed investigation into the murder of 44-year-old Relis Eastman on Saturday, June 25, 2016, has led to an arrest. After multiple interviews with Relis’ 22-year-old son Scott Eastman of Antioch, Antioch Police Detectives developed the probable cause necessary to obtain an arrest warrant for Scott for the murder of his father, Relis.

On Thursday, July 7, 2016 at approximately 9:00 PM a team of Antioch Police Detectives responded to the Eastman residence in the 1900 block of Biglow Drive, where Scott resides with his family. Detectives took Scott into custody without incident.

Scott was booked into the Contra Costa County Main Detention Facility on murder charges and is being held with no bail. Detectives plan on filing this case with the Contra Costa County Office of the District Attorney early next week.

The investigation is ongoing and no further information will be released at this time. Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call Detective Colley with the Antioch Police Department at (925) 779-6922. You may also text a tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using key word ANTIOCH.
