Phoenix police charge man in 9 slayings

10 May, 2017, 02:51 | Author: Lorraine Moran

A man was arrested Monday in a string of serial killings that rattled a Phoenix neighborhood a year ago, marking a major break in a case that involved nine deaths and a dozen separate shootings.

After that, police say Saucedo went on a random killing spree, fatally shooting seven others during the spring and summer of 2016, according to CBS.

Saucedo now faces a total nine separate murder charges.

From August 2015 to July 2016 the shootings terrorized the largely Hispanic community in Maryvale in Phoenix, Arizona.

Police say that unlike later victims, who appear to have been chosen at random, Romero had a personal connection to Saucedo: At the time he was killed, he was dating Saucedo's mother. "Many came in as, 'My neighbor has a black BMW, ' or 'My neighbor has dark hair and looks like the serial shooter.' No one tip that came in gave us the whole puzzle, just tiny pieces that helped additional evidence come into view".

"Today is a good day in the city of Phoenix", Mayor Greg Stanton said on Monday (8 May).

Police were led to Saucedo by tips from the community and they said they will be giving out the $75,000 reward they offered for information in the case.

Police say that after Romero's killing, Saucedo struck again about four months later in killing 22-year-old Jesse Olivas, who was gunned down on New Year's Day 2016 while standing in front of a home.

Saucedo first was arrested for the 2015 death of Raul Romero, 61, his mother's boyfriend.

Two men were also arrested in 2006 for killing eight people and shooting at dozens of others over the course of a year.

The investigation into the serial killings had focused on what authorities said were seven fatal shootings.

" 'I had a gut feeling it was him, ' she told paper on Monday". Following the tip, "detectives were able to link him to the string of attacks by analyzing ballistics evidence, surveillance video and witness statements".

"I'm innocent" were the only other words he spoke during the appearance before a judge who agreed with a prosecutor that that Saucedo should be held without bond.

Since then, investigators linked him to the more recent series of shootings, and police announced Monday they had found probable cause to seek charges.

June 10, 2016: A 19-year-old man, Manuel Castro Garcia, was shot and killed outside a home around 9:30 p.m.

Sylvia Ellis, who lost her daughter and granddaughter, said she is in shock at the arrest. Diego Verdugo-Sanchez, 21, was shot outside a home at around 9pm.

"The fact of them finding somebody, at least it was some type of news", Smith said.

The last confirmed attack of the suspect was on 11 July, when he shot at a vehicle with a 21-year-old man and four-year-old boy inside it, although both escaped the attack unharmed.
