CORONA, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California man who made it his mission to track down the hit-and-run driver who killed his wife and mother of their eight children led police to an 85-year-old suspect, who was arrested, authorities said.

Brenda Richardson died after a white Lexus struck her motorcycle in Corona, police said.

Her husband, Rod Richardson, told KNBC-TV that he decided to search for the car that hit his wife.

While at the intersection where the collision occurred, Richardson said he spotted the entrance of an apartment complex.

“Something was on my heart, tugging me, saying ‘you need to go in,’” Richardson told the news station.

As soon as he entered the complex, he saw a white Lexus with damage to passenger’s side front door.

“My heart dropped,” he said.

He called Corona police and officers arrested Tashiro Isa on suspicion of felony hit and run and vehicular manslaughter. It wasn’t known Sunday if the 85-year-old Corona resident has an attorney.

Police Sgt. Chad Fountain confirmed Richardson’s account, the Riverside Press-Enterprise newspaper reported Saturday.

Richardson said he was moved to act because the grief of losing his wife and mother of his children was overwhelming.

Vagos Motorcycle Club leader Robert Wiggins lay on the casino floor staring down the barrel of a gun as two rival Hells Angels members stomped on his body. Wiggins thought he was going to die.

“When you have your older kids falling on the ground crying cause they have no control,” he said. “Your younger kids waking you up in the middle of the night saying they missed her, it’s a lot.”

Richardson said his wife worked for decades with the Veteran’s Administration in Long Beach. The family has started a GoFundMe account to cover funeral expenses.
