Victim Dragged Behind Motorcycle Identified, Accused Killer Remains Jailed

A murder victim who was dragged behind a motorcycle in Red Bluff Monday night has been identified by the Tehama County District Attorney’s Office as Johnny Gregory. He was apparently the upstairs neighbor of 37-year-old Ray Ray Cain Jr. at a Franzel Road apartment complex. Officers were called by a neighbor who said a man was tied up at the base of the stairs at the apartments. Police say when they arrived Gregory was tied around the ankles, with the other end of the rope tied to Cain’s motorcycle as he dragged Gregory down the street about three blocks. One of the officers fired three shots to try and stop Cain but he missed. The motorcycle turned onto South Jackson Street and Gregory’s body came loose. It’s not yet known if he died from being dragged or if he was killed prior to that. Officers pursued Cain until he crashed on South Main Street near I-5. He was treated at Saint Elizabeth for moderate injuries and then booked into jail. Cain’s bail has been lifted to Three Million Dollars.
