Homicide victims worked at Lincoln apartment complex where suspect lived
Suspect in Lincoln double homicide identified
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Two families are still in shock Tuesday as they deal with the unexpected loss of their loved ones.
Lincoln Police said a woman who lived at The Lodge Apartments intentionally hit and killed two maintenance workers with her car Monday afternoon.
Taylor Bradley, 27, was arrested on two counts of second degree murder and is set to be arraigned in court on Wednesday.
Officers were called to the apartment complex near 48th Street and Nebraska Parkway Monday around 1:22 p.m. on a report of two pedestrians hit by a car.
Police arrived and found two men deceased. 10/11 spoke with family members who confirmed that Chris Karmazin, 42, and Ronald Gonzalez, 45 are the two men who were killed.
Karmazin leaves behind a wife and three children. A GoFundMe page was set up to help the family.
Ronald Gonzalez’s wife, Georgina, said she’s heartbroken by the loss of the man she was with for 15 years.
“He was a great guy. He tried to be a great husband, great dad to his kids. He was always there, now that he’s gone there’s a vacancy at the house. It’s like someone’s missing,” said Georgina Gonzalez via a family member who helped translate.
Lincoln Police Chief Teresa Ewins said Bradley purposely located the two maintenance workers in a grassy area of a parking lot and hit them both with her vehicle. Bradley was arrested just 10 minutes later a few blocks away from the crime scene.
Police are currently interviewing witnesses to determine a motive. Chief Ewins said the situation is ‘more complex than one would think’.
“We have video but it doesn’t show everything prior to the event.” Ewins said.
LPD asks that anyone with additional information to contact them at 402-441-6000 or Lincoln Crime Stoppers at (402) 475-3600.
