Search Is On For Missing Wesley Chapel Woman
A missing Wesley Chapel woman could be the victim of foul play.
Doug Tobin of the Pasco County Sheriff's Office (PCSO) says new evidence has been discovered at the missing woman's residence, 27154 Raven Brook Rd. in Wesley Chapel that could indicate that foul play had a hand in her disappearance.
"Right now, our primary concern is finding Linda, to find out where she is and to find out the full circumstances of the events that occurred with her boyfriend, Timothy," says Sgt. James Sessa.
Losacano's five-year-old daughter, who was found in the home before shots were fired, is now in the custody of Losacano's sister, Tobin says.
According to a Pasco County Sheriff’s Office (PSCO) report, deputies were following up a search for Losacano on May 6 at the request of Losacano's sister, who says she has not been heard from since April 14.
The report says that deputies responded to find the home locked, but forced their way inside. While searching the house, they heard gunshots fired around 7:19 p.m. and also found Losacano's five-year-old girl, who was removed safely.
PCSO’s SWAT team responded and entered the home a little after 9 p.m. The report says that the team found Timothy Dean Arnold, 49, deceased with what is currently being described as a "self-inflicted gunshot wound."
"We need the public's help," says Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco during a press conference May 8. "Anyone who has any information, please, let us know. There's a five-year-old girl out there who wants her mother and we're trying to find her right now."
Losacano’s status has changed from a missing person to an endangered missing adult, PSCO says. Anyone with any information about her whereabouts is urged to call Sgt. James Sessa at (727) 844-7711 or (727) 844-7781.
