Authorities say gallon acknowledged using a rifle to kill 22-year-old Lindsay Cutshall of Ohio and 26-year-old Jason Allen of Michigan in 2004 as the engaged couple lay in sleeping bags on Jenner Beach.

Gallon didn’t know the victims.

Gallon also acknowledged trying to kill a Monte Rio man with a package bomb in 2004 and shooting his brother to death at the family’s Forestville home in 2017.
