A Honolulu man, 73, was founded encased in concrete and covered in coffee grounds inside his $2.1million home after his boyfriend, 23, and his lover, 34, fled to California and were caught heading towards Mexico. 

Juan Tejedor Baron, 23, believed to be from Texas, and his lover Scott Hannon, 34, believed to be of Massachusetts, were arrested by the LAPD and US Marshals on Wednesday in Anaheim – roughly 25 miles away from LA.

Both men, who have pending charges for second-degree murder, fled Hawaii after Gary Ruby, 73, was found encased in concrete inside his bathtub at the ritzy Hawaii Loa Ridge gate community home near Honolulu. 

Ruby’s body had also been covered with coffee grounds under the concrete to mask the smell of decay.

Honolulu Police had visited the Ruby’s home on Lelekepue Place in the gated community on Monday after a welfare call after his brother – who lives on the mainland – had said he hadn’t heard from Ruby since the beginning of February. 

When they arrived, they found Ruby’s 23-year-old live-in boyfriend Baron. Ruby’s brother told police he was aware of their relationship. 

Officers searched the three bedroom and bath home for the homeowner who they were unable to locate. But police did notice the bathtub was filled with a concrete-like substance. 

They later observed Baron leaving the residence with Hannon.

The potential lovers were seen holding hands and wrapping their arms around each other at a Waikiki hotel, where police gave them a courtesy ride to, before fleeing to California 

‘The initial case was a missing person investigation. It was not a criminal case,’ Lieutenant Deena Thoemmes told NBC News.

Police returned the following day to find Baron and Hannon had fled.

When they investigated the bathtub they were overwhelmed by the smell of coffee.

‘When we entered the apartment, we smelled coffee, no doubt,’ Thoemmes of the Honolulu Police Department told NBC News. 

Once officers began to smell human decomposition, they started to chip away at the concrete.

‘The body was in the standalone tub and it was in a state of decomposition once we chipped away at the concrete mixture.’ 

Baron and Hannon were seen at the Waikiki Hotel on Tuesday before fleeing to California. 

Security footage shows the two loved-up men holding hands and being affectionate toward each other on hotel surveillance footage. Baron appeared to be looking up directions on his phone before they walked down the sidewalk toward an unknown destination with Hannon’s arm around the shorter man.

On Wednesday, Baron was found under a bench seat on a Greyhound bus headed to Mexico around 4pm PST. Police said the fugitive had pulled back a metal plate near the restroom and crawled under the enclosed seat. Hannon was apprehended in Inglewood near the West Manchester Boulevard and South Oat Street intersection around 6pm PST. 

Both men were booked into the Los Angeles Police Department Metropolitan Detention Center.

The men are expected to face an extradition warrant and will more than likely not get bail in California as police are working to get the two men back to Hawaii, law enforcement expert Tommy Aiu told Hawaii News Now.  

Ruby lived one of the most ‘premier residential neighborhoods’ in Hawaii Loa Ridge, where homes are currently on sale anywhere from $2.5million to $27million. The gated community – which consists of 557 homes – has been described as the ‘haven of elegant and luxurious homes’ with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.

The ridge is located near Waikiki Beach and is set in the foothills of the Ko’olau Mountain and near downtown Honolulu. 

The community includes a tennis court, private roads with controlled access, a park with picnic tables, 24 hours security, a community building, and is a part of the homeowner’s association. 

Ruby’s own home featured three bedrooms and three bathrooms and sat on the corner of the road. The lavish home feature a bright and rustic interior with light paneling and dark, cherry wood adorning most of the home. 

The stucco home featured a Spanish-style feel with a similar vibe as the interior with contrasting light foundation with a dark, shingled roof. The house was surrounded by lush green lawns and many palm trees with views of the bright blue Pacific, giving the perfect summer home feel. 

The bathroom he was found in had a grey stone backsplash behind the tub, matching the black cabinets under the sink and the tiling in the shower. The standalone tub was oval shaped in plain white with a high silver facet and surrounded by light gray flooring and walls and a separate adjoining room for the toilet.
