Central Florida Woman Shot and Killed Boyfriend, Fled Scene, Killed Herself

A 58-year-old Central Florida woman shot and killed her 50-year-old boyfriend, and then fled the scene in a vehicle before ultimately killing herself after a traffic stop in Alabama.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is conducting the homicide investigation in Tampa. On May 8th, just before 7am, local deputies responded to the 9200 block of Shellgrove Court in Tampa after the communications center received a call from a concerned family member.

Upon arrival, deputies located a deceased adult male.

Through investigative means, detectives learned that 58-year-old Maira Pacheco Nuñez, shot and killed her boyfriend, 50-year-old Kelbys Avila, and then fled the scene in a vehicle.

Detectives developed probable cause and obtained an arrest warrant for Pacheco Nuñez for 2nd Degree Murder with a Firearm.

Within the hour of the arrest warrant being issued, the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office in Alabama spotted the vehicle. Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office’s deputies made a traffic stop.

The suspect then ended her own life with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

“This is a tragic and heartbreaking situation. Our hearts ache for the family of this man whose life was tragically ended,” said Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister. “Violence is never an option. To anyone facing or anyone who suspects domestic violence, please remember: help is available, and you are not alone.”
