The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

ALISO VIEJO | A busi­ness ac­quain­tance of the woman killed in a South­ern Cal­i­for­nia of­fice build­ing ex­plo­sion has been ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of pos­sess­ing an un­reg­is­tered destruc­tive de­vice, the FBI said Thurs­day.

The ar­rest of Stephen Beal, 59, an ac­tor in sev­eral short films who neigh­bors said liked rock­ets, fol­lowed a search of his Long Beach res­i­dence by au­thor­i­ties, said FBI spokes­woman Laura Eimiller.

Ms. Eimiller stressed that Mr. Beal was not be­ing held in con­nec­tion with Tues­day’s ex­plo­sion.

Mr. Beal’s Face­book page has many pho­tos of him trav­el­ing with the blast vic­tim, Ildiko Kra­jnyak, 48, a li­censed cos­me­tol­o­gist who owned the day spa where the blast oc­curred.

State doc­u­ments show Mr. Beal and Ms. Kra­jnyak as of­fi­cers in a skin care

busi­ness called I&S En­ter­prises.
