Suspect in the murder of Las Cuevas couple found dead

A decomposed body discovered in bushes off Rincon Road, Las Cuevas is believed to be that of a man who killed his former lover and her partner before fleeing the scene.

A love triangle turned tragic after a woman and her husband were killed by her former lover.

Shireen Valdez had been warned by her jilted lover that she only had four days to live.

On Friday, the love triangle involving the estranged couple  ended in tragedy, after the wife’s younger lover entered her marital home at Las Cuevas and killed them both before he fled into the forest.

Reports indicate that a body was discovered by hikers on Monday and is believed to be that of the suspect in the murder of the couple which occurred in the same area.

Reports also state that Valdez was scared after the man kicked in her front door last Monday and issued the threat, saying he had emptied his bank account and was prepared to die.

She was allegedly too scared to report the incident because her lover was friendly with community law enforcement officers.

Valdez and her husband, Hollis, 40, were both shot dead at their Rincon Road, Las Cuevas home between 7.30 am and 8 am Friday.

The suspect, who worked as a security guard, evaded police and a manhunt came up empty-handed.

Investigations are continuing.
