The body of missing Devine, Texas mom, Jessica Sanchez is found alongside her ex boyfriend, Jorge Jaramillo – suspected of abducting her- in a purported murder suicide.
The body of a Texas woman kidnapped from her home in Devine at gunpoint June 30 has been found along with that of the ex-boyfriend suspected in her abduction.
The family of Jessica Sanchez confirmed that two bodies found Tuesday in Medina County, Texas, were of her and Jorge Jaramillo, who may have climbed through a window to get to her.
The medical examiner had not determined a cause of death by Tuesday evening, with KENS-TV reporting that the pair’s deaths were an apparent murder-suicide.
‘We know they’ve been here for a while, because we’ve been looking since last Sunday, so 8, going on 9 days,’ said Medina County Sheriff Randy Brown.
‘We hope and prayed for a better outcome,’ said Sheriff Brown. ‘It’s been very aggravating.’
Sanchez had separated from Jaramillo in May after seven years together, and had filed an emergency order of protection against him ‘following a recent incident involving a knife,’ police told KENS.
At the time of Sanchez’s abduction, Jaramillo allegedly broke through the window, locked the woman’s three girls in the laundry room, and dragged their mother away according to News4SA. A reward had been offered for any information leading to Jaramillo’s capture.
