A famous psychiatrist who has worked on some notorious cases- including the murder of Jon Benet Ramsey- has been murdered

The second woman was found shot to death inside the office.

Officials say police were trying to make contact with the suspect at the Extended Stay Hotel in Scottsdale when he opened fire at officers.

What was the motive?

"We don't know the relationships or the connections", Sgt. Police positively linked all of the killings to each other.

Here's what's been made public about how the killings unfolded.

That the suspect killed the victims in their workplaces, and that he was unidentified for days, only raised fears for Silverman that he might run into the killer.

Shots were fired as the SWAT team went into the suspect's room, but officers did not fire, Phoenix police Sgt. Vince Lewis said, the Associated Press reported.

Yet he casually welcomed a group of frenzied reporters into his office to discuss an ongoing case while clad in a crisp white dress shirt paired with a pair of hiking shorts and boots. The suspect killed himself Monday, June 4, in a Scottsdale hotel room, police said. He also served as an expert in divorce cases.

He had been involved in several high-profile cases, including the investigation into the death of child beauty queen JonBenét Ramsey in 1996.

Pitt said Jones did not conform to social norms and acted impulsively and aggressively. Police could not explain the discrepancy.

"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. She was transported to a local hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

Less than 24 hours later, two paralegals were gunned down at their law offices in downtown Scottsdale. "She was more than a co-worker, she was a friend, a mother, grandmother, daughter and wife and gave all of herself to her family, her friends and her work", Burt, Feldman, Grenier said. She then ran out of the office and flagged down a party bus driver to call for help.

Police said a man was found dead at a mental health counselors' office in Scottsdale.

'Our investigation has determined that this double homicide is related to the shooting of Steven Pitt on May 31, 2018, in Phoenix, ' Scottsdale police said in a statement.

The shell casings were similar to those at the two previous crime scenes, Slavin said. Jones' son, as part of the divorce proceedings, was ordered to see another psychiatrist who normally worked from Levine's office space. He didn't say who provided the tip.

In a statement, Jones' ex-wife said her current husband, a retired Phoenix Police detective, called in a tip to Phoenix Police on Saturday night.

On Sunday, Jones killed a man and a woman at a home in the northeast Phoenix suburb of Fountain Hills, police said.

He was located in the afternoon and officers followed his gold Mercedes with distinctive wheels. "Sloppiness leads them to leave physical evidence and physical evidence leads to apprehension and arrest". The.22-caliber pistol was not used in the killings, Slavin said. The shooter escaped, but police released a description and a sketch.

A man suspected of murdering a high-profile forensic scientist and at least three others connected to his contentious divorce killed himself on Monday inside a Scottsdale hotel. Police got no matches when running the sample through DNA databases.
