Metro Phoenix police: 3 found in truck were murdered

SURPRISE, Ariz. — Three charred bodies found in the back of a burned
pickup truck in a remote area of Surprise have been identified and authorities
said it’s a homicide case.

Surprise police said Wednesday that the victims have been identified as
25-year-old Garth Tuffle of Phoenix, 41-year-old William Kling of Wittmann and
57-year-old Lisa Baker of Wittmann.

An autopsy by the Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s Office shows all three
victims were shot before being burned.

The three bodies were found June 9 after Surprise firefighters responded to a
vehicle fire near 219th Avenue and Sun Valley Parkway.

After the fire was extinguished, police say three bodies were found in the
burned-out truck.

Police said they don’t have any suspects in the case yet.
