Suspect Claimed To Have Several Inoperable Brain Tumors
July 30 Update:
El Paso Police Crimes Against Persons investigators have identified the three people involved in the homicide investigation from July 29.
The woman who was killed has been identified as 35-year-old Annette Hernandez of the 7200 block of Dale. The man that was stabbed several times during the same incident but survived has been identified as 41-year-old Adrian Archuleta.
Investigators have identified Hernandez’s estranged husband 38-year-old Charles Edward Morales of the 7800 block of Maverick as the person responsible for her death and the attempted murder of Archuleta.
Police say Morales was armed with a knife and was shot and killed by officers after confronting investigators and officers just before 7 a.m. July 29 at his residence.
Morales wrote in an Aug. 30, 2012 Facebook post that he was dying.
“… I went to my specialist on the 27th of August and he told me that I only had a couple of months to 2 yrs years because I have 3 tumors growing in the back of my head and they can’t be removed so all I’m asking is to don’t (feel) any pitty (sic) for or feel for either," Morales wrote. (Editor's Note: This is how it was posted on his page.)
