PHOENIX (CBS5) -
The suspect in an October double murder in Phoenix has died after a chase and a shooting in Tucson.
KOLD-TV, the CBS affiliate in Tucson, reports that U.S. Marshals and Toledo police served a warrant on the suspect at a motel near the Tucson airport.
Police said that led to a carjacking and a pursuit to 22nd Street and Fifth Avenue in south Tucson where the suspect, Hector "Flaco" Taner Karaca, 24, shot himself.
Police were looking for Karaca in connection with the Oct. 21 murders of 25-year-old Jose Alonso Villa and his 17-year-old girlfriend, Kristen Bianca Furgeri. Their bodies were found in a bed in a back house near 27th Avenue and Indian School Road shortly after 11:30 p.m., said Phoenix Police Sgt. Trent Crump.
Villa's brother heard gunshots coming from the back house and told his mother. She looked out the front window and saw Karaca running to her car and leaving, according to the police report.
It also said Villa's mother waited about 10 minutes until her husband arrived home before calling police. When her husband got home, he checked on his son and Furgeri and found them shot to death.
The charred remains of a white 2005 Hyundai Elantra stolen from the scene were found in an alley near 20th Avenue just north of Buckeye Road the following morning. Police identified the suspect as Karaca, who spent time in the Arizona prison system for vehicle theft.
In an interview with police, Villa's mother said she went to the back house about 9:30 p.m. and there was a man there she knew as "Flaco" carrying a green, camouflage gun in the home with her son and his girlfriend.
Villa's father told police Karaca and Villa became friends about a month prior to the deadly shooting and that Karaca would come to the house once a week. On the day of the shooting, Villa's father said Karaca was trying to sell him the camouflage gun.
He said witnesses saw the suspect get into the family's Hyundai and drive away with the car's lights off.
On Dec. 12, authorities located Karaca in Tucson and when they attempted to arrest him, he led police on a chase and then shot himself to death.
Police said Karaca had just gotten out of prison and had came up to Phoenix from Tucson.
Maria Rosas was friends with the victims and said they were always upbeat.
"They were always happy, outgoing," Rosas said, fighting back tears. "They were young so they liked to go out and have fun. I just know they were always happy, always big smiles."
