A 28 year old mother of two small children was shot to
death behind the wheel. Phoenix Police Sergeant, Darren
Burch, said her name was Carla Sanchez and it happened
just before 6:00 a.m. on Monday, March 24th, 2008 near
67th Avenue and Indian School.
“She was actually on her way to take her ex-boyfriend to
work. She had borrowed his car, they had a good
relationship, and he needed to go to work. So she was
going to his home to pick him up for work.”
Her ex-boyfriend was standing out front as she pulled-up
to his house when someone in a black vehicle pulled up
along side her and shot her to death with a blast from a
shotgun. It happened right in front of her ex-boyfriend.
Sgt. Burch said, “Initially, investigators looked to see
if the ex-boyfriend was the target. She was in his car and
in front of his home. But, at this juncture, they still
don’t know who the actual target was.”

Our next case may have multiple suspects. It’s happening
throughout the Valley at cemetaries. Sgt. Burch said
thieves are going in and stealing the bronze vases.
“These are the vases that have the flowers in them.
Sometimes they’re engraved and have sentimental value,”
The thieves are stealing them for the value of the bronze.
While loved ones may pay big money for those vases, the
thieves only get 5 or 10 dollars each for them.
Sergeant Burch said the next time you’re at a cemetery,
pay attention to what’s going on around you. If something
looks suspicious, call police.
