A story for every victim

Jacqueline Elizabeth Molina, 33

Jacqueline Molina, a 33-year-old Latina, was killed by her boyfriend in an apparent murder-suicide Monday, Nov. 29, in the 5000 block of Jenifer Avenue in Charter Oak, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies responded at 5:19 p.m. to a 911 call from a man who said he had received a disturbing phone call from an acquaintance who lived in Charter Oak, an unincorporated area near Covina.

"The male said he was sorry about what he had done and asked him to call police," said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Jeff Cannon.

When deputies went to the caller's home, no one answered and the front door was unlocked. They entered to find a Latino man and woman dead inside.

Coroner's officials have since identified the deceased couple as Guillermo Gamboa, a 41-year-old Latino, and Jacqueline Molina.

According to preliminary coroner's records, Molina "may have been asphyxiated/smothered by" Gamboa, while he died from a gunshot wound to the head.
