Two murder suspects from Fresno have been caught in Northern California. Police say Brandon Forrest, 25, and Samuel Whitmore, 30, stabbed Michael Tunnel to death on Aug. 14th.

Surveillance video captured the crime outside Ewell's Place in Central Fresno. The surveillance video shows a fight that ends with the 31-year-old victim collapsing on the sidewalk.

Investigators say a game warden in Humboldt County stopped the two suspects for fishing without a license. The warden then realized they were wanted for murder and arrested them. Saturday friends and family of the victim held a car wash to raise money for his funeral expenses.

"If anyone knew "Tun", they knew he was an amazing person. He would give the shirt off his back for anyone, what happened to him was the most horrible thing that could happen to anyone," Linda Rendino a friend from Forbidden Tattoo said.

The two suspects in Tunnel's murder were booked into the Fresno County Jail early Saturday morning.
