Cops Found His Manifesto. They Have Yet to Find Him

A San Jose family returned from vacation late Wednesday to find their home had been burglarized and at least two guns taken. Perhaps most alarming was a 20-page manifesto left on their kitchen table. In it, their estranged son, 44-year-old Dustin Hamilton, "made threats to kill people in San Francisco and any law enforcement personnel," say San Jose police, who are now searching for the man with their SF counterparts, per NBC Bay Area.

Hamilton—6 feet tall, 145 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes—is a transient living in San Francisco, per the San Jose Mercury News. Police say he's schizophrenic but hasn't been taking his medicine. He has a particular hatred for police and "is believed to be armed and dangerous," officers add. A shotgun and .357 Magnum revolver were missing from his family's home. He faces arrest for burglary, threats, firearm possession, and for earlier allegations of assault and vandalism.
