Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department said wanted-murder suspect Gildardo Llamas Ramos was found dead Friday night.
Spokesman Sergeant Tony Turnbull said Ramos had what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Around 6:15 p.m. Friday, officers served a search warrant in the 3600 block of 43rd Street in Sacramento.
They found Ramos dead inside.
Turnbull said this is a tentative identification of Ramos and the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office will make a final confirmation of identification through fingerprints.
Friends of Chavez said the two had previously dated for six months.
Chavez was found just after 11 p.m. Wednesday with a gunshot wound to the head. Turnbull said she had just returned home and was shot once she got out of her car, which was parked on the street.
