More details have emerged in the apparent murder-suicide that occurred August 9 in the Wesley Chapel SuperTarget parking lot on Bruce B. Downs Blvd. at County Line Rd.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO), the bodies discovered in the vehicle were those of Armando Troconis, 65, of Holiday, and his girlfriend, Elizabeth Behrens, 59, of Tampa. Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco says that both were separated from their spouses, but Behrens told Troconis that she was planning to return to her husband. However, the timeframe for when she told him her decision is still unclear and detectives have not yet determined whether she told him before or after arriving in the Target parking lot.
The case is still under investigation, but PCSO detectives believe that Troconis shot Behrens in her car and then turned the gun on himself.
The PCSO report says the department received a call around 7:48 p.m. on August 9 about the bodies of a man and woman discovered dead inside a vehicle in the Target parking lot.
