Wilmer Ortiz, the victim’s younger brother, confirmed to the Post Office that his brother was in a relationship with the suspect’s killer’s sister, which ended the same day.
“I’m pretty sure it’s all about the breakup he’s been dealing with,” Wilmer told the market. “It is [his ex-girlfriend’s] older brother we are talking about. “
Wilmer said it was not clear why the relationship ended, but mentioned that it had something to do with her brother, “that he was too protective.”
