A story for every victim

Rosa Chavez, 55

Rosa Chavez, a 55-year-old Latina, was shot and killed Wednesday, Nov. 23, in the 700 block of Sierra Vista Court in La Puente, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Deputies responded to a home after receiving a call about 10:23 a.m. that there was a man with a gun. Authorities declined to say if the call was placed from the home.

When deputies arrived, they found the bodies of Chavez, her boyfriend, Luis Fraustro, a 66-year-old Latino, and another man.

Officials believe all three died in an apparent murder-suicide with Chavez and Fraustro being the victims.

According to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the shooter was identified as Francisco Sanchez, a 52-year-old Latino. He killed Chavez, an ex-girlfriend, and Fraustro before turning the gun on himself.

Anyone with additional information about the killings is asked to contact the sheriff's homicide bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (800) 222-8477.
