A girl murdered by her ex-boyfriend, boy ends his life too

A man took his life after shooting his 26- year-old ex-girlfriend, police informed.

Jacqueline Valenzuela was allegedly murdered by her ex boyfriend Carlos Torres, 27, at about 5:45 p.m. inside her apartment in the 10700 block of Vista del Sol Drive, police said.

Torres was inside the apartment at the time of the shooting and had fled the scene in a car that belonged to Valenzuela, police department determined  during the investigation

The vehicle has been located by the police and Torres was found dead inside the car from self inflicted gunshot wound.

Police informed that the motive for murder of Valenzuela’s is jealousy as she recently had broken up with him and was seeing someone else.

Valenzuela was serving as a nurse at Armonia Home Health Care Agency from past two years.

Brittany Herrera, a colleague of Valenzuela, was shocked when she heard a news about Valenzuela’s  death.

Herrera expressed saying that Valenzuela was a kind person who loved her eight-year-old son.

“She (Jackie) was a really good person with a big heart. She was one of those persons you always wanted to be around. She was such a joy to be around and she loved, loved her son so much,” Herrera said.

“Her (Valenzuela’s) mom called this morning to let us know and we were just shocked,” Herrera said. “Personally, I don’t know much (about Valenzuela and Torres’ relationship). I remember her saying around here that he (Torres) was really good with her son and took him in like he was his own son. She never really said anything negative about him. So this is all just very surprising.”

Police have not released any further information.

This is the 21st homicide of 2014 in El … MORE
