celine handbag Homicide victim ID’d, roommate arrested

A woman found dead Sunday in a north-side apartment was identified as Kathleen Deluche, and her roommate was arrested, police said.

Deluche’s roommate, Antonio Moore, 26, was arrested Monday and booked into the Pima County jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, said Sgt. Pete Dugan, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

On Sunday at 10:20 a.m., a neighbor called 911 after finding Deluche inside her apartment unconscious with obvious signs of trauma, Dugan said.

Deluche lived in the 3000 block of North Geronimo Avenue, near North First Avenue and East Fort Lowell Road.

Deluche, who was pronounced dead at the scene, had multiple stab wounds, Dugan said. He said her 3-year-old child was found inside the home, and the child was unharmed.

Homicide detectives developed information that led to Moore, and Moore was located with the help of federal marshals Monday afternoon and taken into custody, said Dugan.

BP agent shoots 2on reservation

A U.S. Border Patrol agent fired at a truck Monday, striking two Tohono O’odham tribal members after the driver of the truck tried to run the agent over, authorities said.

The shooting happened about 12:15 a.m. on a road near San Miguel, which is south of Sells near the international border on the Tohono O’odham Nation. Sells, the capital of the nation, is 60 miles southwest of Tucson.

Officers of the Tohono O’odham Police Department responded to the shooting. There were three tribal members in the truck, according to a tribal news release.

The Border Patrol agent fired his gun “at the driver of a truck attempting to run the agent over,” according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection statement.

The truck struck the driver’s side of the agent’s vehicle, causing injury to the agent, according to the statement.

Officials did not release the agent’s name, injuries or if he needed medical attention. The two people in the truck who were struck by gunfire were transported to a hospital, but their injuries or conditions were not released.

No names of the suspects were released, or if they were arrested and charged in the case.

Couple finds stolen bust of JFK in wash

A bronze bust of former President John F. Kennedy that was stolen in December from a downtown Tucson park was found Saturday by a couple in a west-side wash.

The couple found the bust in an overturned pot, and turned it in Saturday to a recycling center where an employee recognized the bust and called police. The couple did not want money for the bust, according to a city news release.

Peg Weber, an administrator with Tucson Parks and Recreation, identified the bust Monday.

The bronze piece had damage to the nose, and scratches and dings in various places. It also had damage to its base, said Weber. She estimated total damage at about 0.

Weber said the bronze bust is in the Tucson Police Department’s evidence room, and she expects it will be released to her this week.

She said she plans on contacting local artist Hardy Grant, who did the original piece, about repairs. Weber said she also will talk to Tucson Pima Arts Council about securing the bust to its granite pedestal at El Presidio Park.

The bust was originally unveiled Nov. 22, 1964, one year after Kennedy’s assassination. It cost ,000 and was paid for by the county Democratic Party.

“We are pleased that the sculpture has been found,” said Pima County Democratic Party Chairman Don Jorgensen, in a news release. “We will be happy to work with the city to restore the memorial.”
