"EL PASO, TX — The El Paso Police Department have officially released the names of those involved in a murder/suicide Wednesday.
"Police received a call at about 5:45 p.m. at an apartment in the 10700 block of Vista Del Sol where 26-year-old Jacqueline Valenzuela was found shot to death inside her apartment.
"Detectives identified 27-year-old Carlos Torres, who was at the apartment when the shooting occurred, as the suspect in the homicide.
"Police say Torres fled the scene in a vehicle that belonged to Valenzuela—a black 2012 Ford Focus.
"Police searched for Torres and received information that he may have been in the Tom Mays Park area in West El Paso off of Trans Mountain.
"Officers approached the vehicle and saw a man—identified as Torres—dead inside of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
"Police say the motive for the homicide appears to be jealousy as Valenzuela and Torres had recently broken off a relationship and Valenzuela had begun seeing someone else. The case remains ongoing at this time."
