Who Was Dwight Lamon Jones? Suspected Arizona Serial Killer Allegedly Killed Six in Murder Spree

The suspect in a string of homicides across the Phoenix and Scottsdale areas of Arizona was identified as Dwight Lamon Jones, 56, on Monday. Rich Slavin, assistant chief of the Scottsdale Police, confirmed that Jones was the suspect they had been working to contact Monday morning.

Jones was found dead Monday at the Extended Stay America hotel, where he had been living, police told AZcentral. The police tracked the suspect to the hotel, at 10660 N. 69th St. in Scottsdale, before closing in on the room where he was allegedly staying. The police cleared the rooms next to the suspect's and then heard gunshots come from inside the room, AZcentral reported. The suspect was then found dead due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

In the early morning hours of Monday, the police arrived at the Extended Stay America, guests told AZcentral. One guest told the outlet that roughly 10 officers were outside of his room early Monday morning and asked him to evacuate.

Jones was a suspect in the killings of six people, one of which was Steven Pitt, the forensic investigator in the murder of JonBenét Ramsey. Pitt was shot outside of his office after a loud argument occurred between him and a person who confronted him, according to a witness.

Pitt may have performed an evaluation on Jones during the suspect's divorce from his wife, Connie, according to KPNX. Police confirmed that the suspect did see Pitt in connection with his divorce. Court records show that Connie Jones filed for divorce from her then-husband in 2009, a case that dragged on for years and involved psychological evaluations.

Following Pitt's death, another two people were killed. Two paralegals, Veleria Sharp and Laura Anderson, with Burt, Feldman and Grenier law firm in Scottsdale, were killed on Friday, AZcentral reported. A partner at the family law firm, Elizabeth Feldman, is listed as the lawyer who represented Connie Jones in her divorce from Dwight Lamon Jones.

Marshall Levine, a psychologist, was found shot Saturday as well. Police told AZcentral that they were confident Levine's death was related to the others, but it was unclear how he might have been connected to Jones. During the press conference on Monday, Officer Slavin confirmed that Levine was working out of an office space where the suspect's son had seen a doctor.

On Monday, police found an additional two victims at a home in Fountain Hills that they believe were also connected to the killer, police said in the press conference.

Police said that the suspect's ex-wife and son were both unharmed.

This story was updated to include further information about Levine and Pitt's connection to Jones and the condition of the suspect's ex-wife and son.
