Arizona man kills six people in 96-hour murder spree

They were killed on Friday.

The psychiatrist, Steven Pitt, who assisted in the JonBenét Ramsey mystery in Colorado, was called a "scumbag" in one of the videos. Pitt, who testified that Jones had anxiety and mood disorders and symptoms of a paranoid personality, was killed Thursday.

Dwight Lamon Jones' ex-wife is speaking out for the first time since Thursday's tragic killing spree that unfolded in Arizona, claiming she lived in terror.

Jones said in the videos that he had been a stay-at-home dad who occasionally taught tennis.

Dwight Lamon Jones appeared ready to slaughter anyone he deemed to have done him wrong.

Court documents show that in 2016, Jones told Connie that he would wait until things settled down before taking his revenge and that she will be found at the bottom of the pool.

Investigators are still examining remnants from Jones' room at the extended-stay hotel where he shot and killed himself.

Investigators established that Dwight Jones, 56, had a link to his victims as a result of divorce proceedings nearly a decade ago.

Police were investigating a fifth death on Monday that may be related to the other slayings, ABC15 reports. As officers approached, they heard gunfire and found his body.

Jones went to that law firm with the "intent of killing" Feldman, police said.

Reward money stemming from the tips Connie Jones and her husband submitted will be donated to the families of the victims as well as to Chrysalis, a non-profit for victims of domestic violence, the statement said.

"I have feared for my safety for the past nine years", Connie Jones, a radiologist, said in a statement. Police confirmed Monday during the press conference that both Connie Jones and her child were unharmed. He lacked remorse and close friends and required excessive admiration, the records said.

His wife was awarded sole custody of their then-13-year-old son, and the payments were set to end after five years.

"This is not a success story, but it's a story that has closure", Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone said.

"The exact connection between Jones and the victims are still being determined", a Scottsdale PD spokesperson said. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Other victims included a marriage counselor who was apparently targeted in a case of mistaken identity and another man and woman whose ties to Jones have not been made public. Levine, who took over the space, was not involved in the divorce case.

Police would not speculate why Jones tracked down people connected to his divorce so long after it happened.

Scottsdale police said the investigation is still on going with a "great deal of work to still be done".

Jones' DNA was found on one of spent casings.

"Most mass killings in American history were planned over months and years", said Jack Levin, a professor emeritus of sociology and criminology at Northeastern University in Boston and author of several books on serial killings and mass murderers. They were found dead early Monday morning.

Jones' first victim is discovered.

Police added that during initial surveillance, Jones was seen dumping a handgun stolen from a resident of Fountain Hills.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, the suspect fatally shot himself Monday at an area hotel as law enforcement closed in on his location.
