Two People Who Died In Apparent Santa Barbara County Murder-Suicide Identified

Posted on Monday, April 16, 2012 2:53pm


Authorities are now identifying the two people who died in what they’re calling a murder-suicide in Santa Barbara County, which left a third person injured.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department officials say Luis Avila DeDios, and Heidi Nicole Hubrecht died in last Friday morning’s incident.

Detectives say DeDios had been dating Hubrecht, but that their relationship ended a few weeks ago.

They say the 23 year old man was apparently waiting for his ex-girlfriend when she arrived home, to her apartment of the 100 block of Camino de Vida in Goleta early Friday morning.

The investigators believed he stabbed the 23 year old woman to death, and also stabbed, and injured one of her two roommates before killing himself with a hunting knife.

The injured roommate, a 23 year old woman, survived the attack. A third roommate asleep in another room was uninjured.
