Court Documents Shed New Light On Creighton Killings Suspect
CREATED Jul. 18, 2013
Omaha, NE-- An arrest affidavit for the man accused in two double murders in Omaha is shedding some light on the detective work that led to Dr. Anthony Garcia's arrest.
These documents reveal important details about Anthony Garcia, including evidence he was in Omaha the day the Dr. Roger and Mary Brumback were killed in May.
The document shows Omaha Police Officers found the Brumbacks dead inside of their home on Shirley Street on May 14, but believe the killer struck on Mother's Day, which was May 12.
Roger Brumback had multiple gun shot wounds and multiple stab wounds to the right side of his neck.
Mary Brumback was also found with stab wounds to the right side of her neck.
Investigators recovered one shell casing and a Smith and Wesson semi-automatic handgun magazine at the scene. Detectives said it is the same model handgun Garcia purchased in Terre Haute, Indiana on March 8, 2013.
The murderer used knives that were inside the Brumbacks home to stab them.
Also in the document, it is revealed the Brumbacks were last heard from on May 12 around 1:30 p.m. They were talking to their daughter through a computer link on Dr. Brumback's iPad.
Investigators said they observed significant similarities to the double murder in Dundee in 2008.
The Brumbacks were stabbed in the neck on the right side. It's the same pattern on Thomas Hunter and housekeeper Shirlee Sherman, who were killed in March 2008.
Detectives said in that case, the knives used in the attack were also from the home.
Doctor Brumback and Doctor William Hunter, Thomas' father, fired Garcia from his residency in the pathology department at Creighton University for unprofessional conduct toward a fellow resident and their family.
