Arizona: Runaway Couple Found Dead

KINGMAN, Ariz. (HPD) — A couple wanted in connection with slayings in Arizona and Nevada has been found dead in Arizona, authorities said.

Hunter McGuire, 26, and his girlfriend Samantha Branek, 32, were found dead next to each other Friday in a desert area southeast of the town of Kingman with gunshot wounds to the temple.

Police said McGuire appeared to have killed himself, but it was unclear if Branek was as well. The local coroner’s office will determine the official cause of death.

The couple was wanted for a double homicide in Kingman that occurred on June 28, according to authorities.

McGuire, they add, was a suspect in the shooting death of a woman on Monday in Las Vegas.

Branek’s vehicle was said to have been found at a bus station in Yucca and a high-speed chase ensued after a four-hour standoff until police found both dead.
