UPDATE: Two Bodies In Target Parking Determined A Murder-Suicide Case
The two bodies that were found in the Wesley Chapel Target parking lot Thursday evening have been identified and the case has been officially described as a murder-suicide.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO), the bodies discovered in the vehicle are those of Armando Troconis, 65, of Holiday, and his girlfriend, Elizabeth Behrens, 59, of Tampa.
Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco says that both were separated from their spouses, but Behrens told Troconis that she was planning to return to her husband. However, the timeframe for when she told him her decision is still unclear and detectives have not yet determined whether she told him before or after arriving in the Target Parking lot.
