Jose Solano Landaeta Bio – Jose Solano Landaeta Wiki
Jose Solano Landaeta of Hayward used a sword to behead a young woman in the street in front of stunned witnesses in a Bay Area neighbourhood on Thursday.
Jose Solano Landaeta is 25 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
In San Carlos, California, the woman was reportedly beheaded outside of her home, and a man said to be her ex-boyfriend has been arrested.
The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office issued a news alert Thursday, stating that an “adult male” was in custody for a woman’s murder.
Around 11:50 a.m. local time, witnesses “flagged down” officers near Magnolia and Laurel about “an assault in progress,” police said in its release.
Officers immediately rushed to the scene and found a woman who had died. “Shortly after that, the suspect returned to the scene,” the release continued and was arrested for her murder.
The victim and suspect knew one another, and deputies say they believe it’s “an isolated incident” and that “there is no outstanding threat to the community.”
Authorities did not release the victim’s identity.
Insiders told NBC Bay Area that the victim was beheaded with a sword.
During a news briefing, Lt. Eamonn Allen confirmed that the fatal stabbing occurred outside the victim’s home. Her two children were inside at the time, according to San Francisco’s ABC 7.
“We can confirm that a stabbing instrument was used in the commission of the crime. That weapon is still outstanding,” said Lt. Allen, per the outlet.
“Anytime someone loses their life, it’s certainly a tragedy,” Lt. Allen said, according to ABC 7. “As far as the shocking nature of it, I know that the deputies that first arrived on the scene were a little beset by the scene. We are providing peer support, and we are also providing support for the witnesses on the scene because there were several civilian witnesses.”
The news station also obtained police records that state officers received calls about a woman’s head being cut off with a sword. Child Protective Services (CPS) later took the girls, 7 and 1, away. The agency also took a dog and two cats that were inside.
The victim and suspect, Jose Solano Landaeta of Hayward, had been dating one another. Still, she was granted a temporary restraining order against him earlier this year, according to ABC 7. It’s not clear if Landaeta has hired a lawyer to comment.
Sources told KRON4 that the victim was 25.
