Police in Scottsdale, Arizona are dealing with four murders in the last four days, at least three of which appear to be linked, the Arizona Republic reports.
Dwight Lamon Jones died Monday morning of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound as police surrounded him in an extended stay hotel in Scottsdale where they had tracked him, Slavin said. On Sunday, police divulged no new information, and said they were continuing to investigate the possible connections between the first three murders and Levine's death, reported azcentral. After Pitt's consultation on the "Baseline Killer", the suspect, Mark Goudeau, was convicted and sentenced to death in 2011 for nine murders.
Jones' ex-wife, Connie Jones, retained Elizabeth Feldman with Burt Feldman Grenier as her attorney, his son was required to see Pitt as part of the divorce agreement and his son was required to see a psychiatrist who would have been in the same office as Levine, but Levine had been subletting the space when he was shot and killed. Tragically, some of their connections to the divorce were tenuous. Police originally said the suspect killed four people but on Monday said there were two additional victims.
Around 9:30 p.m. on June 2, police received a tip that referenced Mr. Jones, Slavin said.
Police may have become interested in Jones when they were contacted by his ex-wife's current husband. Police gave an address that is connected to a mental health counselors' office in Scottsdale.
Sgt. Ben Hoster would not disclose what connected the three victims.
The killing of two people in Arizona this week has been linked to the murder of Steven Pitt, the forensic psychiatrist known for working on the famous murder case of JonBenet Ramsey.
Witnesses heard a loud argument and gunfire Thursday outside Dr. Steven Pitt's office in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale, police say. Court records showed that Pitt told a court that Jones had anxiety and mood disorders and features of a paranoid personality.
Chief Slavin also said Mr. Jones had been arrested around 2008 or 2009 on domestic violence charges alleging that he mistreated his wife and a child. It's not immediately clear when the couple separated and when they divorced. He also served as a consultant to prosecutors in the grand jury probe into death of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey, who was found bludgeoned and strangled in her parents' Boulder, Colorado home.
Veleria Sharp, 48, and Laura Anderson, 49, were shot and killed at a Scottsdale law firm Friday afternoon, according to Scottsdale Police.
A partner at the family law firm, Elizabeth Feldman, is listed as the lawyer who represented Connie Jones in her divorce from Dwight Lamon Jones.
Laura has worked with us as family for more than 10 years. Anderson was described as a grandmother and mother with intellect and passion.
