Police investigate killing of 4th professional near Phoenix

- Police in suburban Phoenix identified a fourth professional found fatally shot late last week as a 72-year-old counselor and life coach.

Scottsdale police say Marshall Levine, who was a hypnotherapist and life coach, was shot inside an office building on Morgan Trail shortly after midnight Saturday.

Four professionals have been killed at their place of work within the past four days.

"I'm incredibly sad that this happened to him," said Karen Kolbe, the victim's coworker. "He was really sweet and easygoing and friendly and reliable, and he cared about his clients."

Sources told FOX 10 earlier they knew who the shooter was, but when asked, Scottsdale police said they did not know.

Police said the killings Friday of paralegals Veleria Sharp and Laura Anderson were related to the killing in Phoenix a day earlier of Dr. Steven Pitt. It's not clear how the victims are linked.

Pitt assisted in the 1996 Ramsey investigation and later helped Phoenix police in a serial killer case.
