LOS ANGELES: The man who carried out a murder-suicide at UCLA left a “kill list” at his Minnesota home that led authorities to find a woman’s body, police said on Thursday.

Mainak Sarkar, 38, drove to Los Angeles from Minnesota with two guns and killed professor Bill Klug before taking his own life.

When authorities searched Sarkar’s Minnesota home, they found a “kill list” with the names of Klug, another UCLA professor and a woman, the police said.

The woman was found shot dead in her home in a Minnesota town. The police said it appeared that Sarkar’s dispute with Klug was tied to Sarkar thinking the professor released intellectual property that harmed Sarkar.
