Murder suspect's ex-wife says new husband recognized pattern with victims

Authorities were closing in on Jones at a Scottsdale extended-stay hotel Monday when he fatally shot himself.

What was the motive? They later found Jones with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Lewis said, adding that the officers did not fire their weapons.

The woman later died at a hospital. All of the deaths might be linked, and one of the victims is a high-profile psychiatrist who worked on the JonBenét Ramsey case.

Police had followed Jones to an extended stay hotel in Scottsdale, but before arresting him removed people from the second floor and part of the third floor for safety.

Lewis said the suspect has been linked to all four of the killings.

"We don't know the relationships or the connections", he said.

"We started to see that Mr. Jones was visiting them in an effort to right some wrong", Chief Slavin said, adding that the suspect had probably meant to kill Ms. Jones's lawyer. He also provided marriage and divorce counselling.

A representative for Jones' ex-wife, Dr. Connie Jones, declined an interview request Tuesday.

Among those killed were two paralegals who worked at the Scottsdale law firm that had represented Jones' ex-wife, report the Arizona Republic, Phoenix New Times and the Washington Post.

Sharp had been observed running from her place of employment, the law offices of Burt, Feldman and Grenier, with blood coming from her face and collapsed after crossing the street.

Police in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale said the killings Friday of paralegals Veleria Sharp, 48, and Laura Anderson, 49, were related to the fatal shooting in Phoenix a day earlier of Dr. Steven Pitt.

Investigators had been searching for Dwight Jones, 56, since psychiatrist Steven Pitt, 59, was found dead outside his office on Thursday, the first of a string of killings that left the Phoenix area on edge.

As police shared new details of the case, several hundred people crowded into a chapel at a mortuary in Scottsdale to honor Pitt with music, humorous stories and a Hebrew prayer of mourning.

He was found Saturday in an office park that houses mostly therapists and counselors. Police have not yet identified those victims but they believe those victims were shot Sunday afternoon.

A man suspected in four Arizona killings over the last few days fatally shot himself in a hotel as SWAT team members closed in, police said Monday.

Police watched him throw away a bag containing a.22-calibre pistol that belonged to the slain man, and then definitively identified him as the suspect in the rest of the crime scenes by linking DNA samples taken from shell casings, according to Slavin.

A placard showing shooting suspect Dwight Jones is seen during a law-enforcement press conference June 4, 2018.

That night, the officers saw Jones stop in Scottsdale and deposit a package in a trash can, Slavin said.

Officers went to the Fountain Hills residence around 12:20 Monday morning in an attempt to make contact with the people in the home. But the gun did not match the evidence found at the other crime scenes.
