OJAI (CBSLA) — An Ojai man faces charges Tuesday of murdering his roommate, whose body has not been found.

Cameron Lykins, 23, of Meiners Oaks – an unincorporated community just north of Ojai – was arrested Sunday after a tip said Lykins admitted to killing his roommate and getting rid of the body, according to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies went to Lykins home in the 100 block of Meyer Road and found a bloody scene they say is consistent with a homicide – but no victim. Lykins’ roommate, Houston Auer, has not been found.
