FOLSOM - A local family is heartbroken after learning a loved one who went missing three days ago died in a light rail accident Friday evening.

Samuel Torres, 77, was killed when he apparently walked in front of an oncoming light rail train at 14th and R streets in downtown Sacramento.

Torres was last seen Thursday at Creekview Manor, a senior community in Folsom.

"He was like my right hand man. He was always there," cousin David Torres said. "I don't know what happened. I don't know why he walked across the tracks. Something went wrong."

His family also says Torres left a "cryptic" note at his apartment, but they're still unsure of what really happened Friday night.
