Laytonville Man Arrested for the Attempted Murder of a Sacramento Woman and Awaits Extradition

27-year-old Laytonville man Jeremy David Marchi has been identified by the Sacramento Police Department as the suspect of attempted murder. Investigators believe that Marchi shot a woman in late June. On Monday, July 3, 2023, he was apprehended by the Ukiah Police Department and now sits behind bars at the Mendocino County Jail awaiting extradition for the crime.

The Sacramento Police Public Information team told us that their officers responded to the 2000 block of Marconi Avenue just after three o’clock in the morning on June 25.

When officers arrived on the scene, they located “an adult female with at least one non-life-threatening gunshot wound” who was taken to the hospital for her injuries.

In the days that followed, Sacramento Police said “Our detectives have been tirelessly conducting follow-up to identify and locate the suspect involved in this incident.”

The Mendocino County Superior Court Information Portal has a record of a warrant for Marchi issued on June 28, 2023, for allegedly violating his state parole. The designated “case type” is state parole revocation. 

The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Booking Log indicates Marchi was taken into custody on July 3, 2023, for violation of parole with the specification he “remain under legal custody to return to prison.”

The booking log also includes two more charges dated July 5, 2023: one for attempted murder and the other for petty theft by a felon.

The Sacramento Police information team told us it was on July 5 that, “Detectives from the Sacramento Police Department authored a warrant for the arrest of 27-year-old, Jeremy Marchi of Laytonville.” 

This timeline suggests law enforcement presented evidence to a magistrate indicating Marchi had run afoul of his state parole (possibly his alleged role in an attempted murder) authorizing his arrest. It was after the extended Fourth of July weekend that a Sacramento judge could sign the warrant for attempted murder and burglary.

This graphic was published when Placer County Sheriff’s Office published their press release on the mail thefts Marchi took part in.

Marchi was one of three arrested in February 2022 for a rash of mail thefts in and around the Sacramento area. A press release from the Placer County Sheriff’s Office says they were caught after a concerned resident witnessed the crew casing mailboxes. The trio proceeded to race away but in the process crashed into a nearby field. After law enforcement arrived on the scene, they discovered “a significant amount of stolen mail” leading to the suspects arrest for identity theft, conspiracy, and concealing evidence. 

A woman by the name of Jennell Bartholomew was one of the two partners in crime that day but a tattoo visible in Marchi’s mugshot suggests their connection might be deeper. On his right cheek, the name “Jannell” is written in bold, cursive lettering and the same distinctive spelling.

At this point, Sac Police’s Information Team said, “Marchi will be extradited to the Sacramento County Main Jail where he will be booked on attempted murder charges.” Investigators are still investigating the alleged attempted murder and told us “We do not have any further information to release at this time.”
