Police say body of man’s girlfriend located

ORANGE — Police said Saturday they located the body of the girlfriend of a Southern California man who led officers on a chase that shut down a busy freeway for an hour.

Shazer Fernando Limas, 31, was arrested early Friday following the chase on Interstate 5. He is suspected of killing his girlfriend, Arlet Hernandez Contreras, 31, and the couple’s two young boys.

Detectives found evidence in his apartment indicating the victims were killed about three weeks ago and the bodies were dumped elsewhere.

Detectives located her body late Friday when they contacted the Los Angeles coroner’s office to see if the facility had any unidentified female bodies. They learned that county workers found one that appeared to have stab wounds April 25 in La Puente, police Sgt. Dan Adams said.

The couple’s 4-month-old and 2-year-old sons remain missing, Sgt. Adams said.

Mr. Fernando Limas came to police’s attention after he moved out of the apartment he shared with Contreras and someone sent to clean the carpets found them covered in blood.

Mr. Fernando Limas was spotted in the Costa Mesa area late Thursday afternoon. When police tried to stop him, he fled on what became a freeway chase that ended near the U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint near San Onofre. A spike strip was used to flatten the tires on his car.

Wife on Skype with soldier saw bullet hole in wall

DALLAS — An Army nurse showed no alarm or discomfort before suddenly collapsing during a Skype video chat with his wife, who saw a bullet hole in a closet behind him, his family said Sunday.

Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark’s family released a statement describing what his wife saw in the video feed recording her husband’s death.

“Clark was suddenly knocked forward,” the statement said. “The closet behind him had a bullet hole in it. The other individuals, including a member of the military, who rushed to the home of CPT Clark’s wife also saw the hole and agreed it was a bullet hole.”

The statement says the Skype link remained open for two hours April 30 as family and friends in the U.S. and Afghanistan tried to get Clark help.
