Veleria Sharp, 48, Laura Anderson, 49 were shot dead at the Law Offices of Burt, Feldman and Grenier, in Old Town Scottsdale on June 1 where  Jones’ wife’s attorney, Elizabeth Feldman worked.  On June 2, Marshall Levine, 72, was found dead outside of her business after Jones was looking for the therapist he had seen there. These 4 victims were connected to Jones through his divorce with his wife Connie.  The final two victims were identified as Mary Simmons, 70, and Byron Thomas, 72 killed at their home in Fountain Hills.[3] Police say Simmons and Thomas had a "social/recreational relationship" with Jones. Simmons and Jones met four to five years ago through tennis and would occasionally meet to play at local parks.[7] Forensic established the same gun was used in all of the shootings.

According to Rich Slavin, an assistant chief with the Scottsdale Police Department, Jones was arrested in 2008 or 2009 on charges of domestic violence, alleging that he mistreated his wife and a child."[6] His former wife told reporters that she "feared for my safety for the past nine years."[2]Online records show Jones’ wife filed for divorce in 2009 and it was finalized in 2011. But the case continued on until 2017 because of battles over alimony and custody of the couple’s children. Jones’ wife sought an order of protection against him, and psychological and psychiatric evaluations were requested for Jones, according to court records. [3]

Retired Phoenix Police Department Deteective Richard Anglin, recognized the connection to her divorce and the three crime scenes Saturday night, June 1. Anglin contacted investigators and Connie Jones also contacted the Scottsdale Police on Sunday. [3] Pitt was shot dead  outside of his office,  “According to witnesses, there was a loud verbal argument heard outside of the offices just before shots were fired."[3]

The previous year Arizona man Cleophus Cooksey Jr., 35, was arrested on Dec. 17, 2017 accused of a stunning murder spree in which he allegedly killed nine people in three weeks -- a rampage that would make him one of the most prolific serial killers in the state's history. After police responded to a call of shots fired they found Cooksey’s mother and stepfather dead. Cooksey was not linked to the other homicides until he was in custody, police said Thursday. [5]

Cooksey is ultimately charged in only eight deaths, it would drop him out of a tie with Aaron Saucedo, who has been charged with nine murders, and the Baseline Killer, Mark Goudeau, who has been convicted of nine, as the deadliest serial killer in Phoenix history.

2018 Scottsdale spree shootings

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigationJump to search
In May and June 2018 a spree killer sought out and killed six people in Scottsdale, Arizona. The spree began on May 30 and ended June 4, when the shooter killed himself as police closed in.[1][2]
The shooter was Dwight Lamon Jones, aged 56.[3]

Shootings[edit]

Steven Pitt (59), a well-known forensic psychiatrist was shot and killed outside his office at 5:20pm on Thursday 31 May.[4] Pitt had examined Jones in connection with a "bitter" divorce.[3][5] In 2006 Pitt helped the police identify the Baseline killer who had raped and murdered a series of women in Phoenix, Arizona.[4][6]
Veleria Sharp (48), and Laura Anderson (49), paralegals, were shot and killed at 2:15pm on Friday, 1 June in the downtown Scottsdale offices of Burt, Feldman, Grenier, the law firm where they worked.[1][5] A lawyer at the firm had worked on the Jones divorce.[2] By 11:30 pm on Friday June 1, police knew that the same gun had been used to kill Anderson, Sharp and Pitt.[5]
The body of Marshall Levine (72), a psychologist and counselor, was found just after midnight, as Friday turned to Saturday, June 2, in his Scottsdale office.[1] Levine was subletting his office from a woman who had provided counseling services to his son during the divorce, Jones' intended target.[3][5]
By Sunday afternoon, police had Jones under surveillance as he drove around Fountain Hills in his gold Mercedes Benz. At one point, Jones ditched a small bag containing a .22-caliber pistol, which police later determined to belong to one of two people, 70-year-old Mary Simmons and 72-year-old Bryon Thomas, who were shot and killed inside a Fountain Hills home. Their bodies were not discovered until Monday, 4 June. Police stated that ballistics ruled out the 22-caliber gun from having been used in any of the shootings.[5]

Investigation[edit]

The break in the investigation came when a retired Phoenix police married to Jones' ex-wife issued a statement saying her current husband, a retired Phoenix police detective, "recognized the connection to my divorce and the three crime scenes and he notified the Phoenix Police violent crime unit on Saturday night." Saturday was June 2.[3][2]

Perpetrator[edit]

According to Rich Slavin, an assistant chief with the Scottsdale Police Department, Jones was arrested in 2008 or 2009 on charges of domestic violence, alleging that he mistreated his wife and a child.[2]
His former wife told reporters that she "feared for my safety for the past nine years."[2]
Jones had been living at Extended Stay hotels for the past nine years.[2]
