Memorial grows for woman killed in murder-suicide in Apache Junction

APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. (FOX 10) - Family and friends remember a woman found dead after she went missing on Friday. Investigators say her boyfriend murdered her before taking his own life.

Flowers, candles, and signs have been set up for Natasha Arredondo where the Pinal County Sheriff's office says her body was found by a citizen Saturday morning.

Family members initially reported Arredondo missing late Friday night. At the same time, Goodyear Police contacted Apache Junction Police for help to find her boyfriend, Stuart Milne, who they said was possibly suicidal and had said threatening things about Arredondo.

Deputies found Arredondo's body with multiple gunshot wounds at an industrial park near Houston and Delaware Roads.

"I just can't believe a man could do that to a woman, at all, it's just honestly, honestly surprising someone could do that to another human," said Wade Younger, Arredondo's neighbor.

Fox 10 reached out to the woman's family who declined to speak.

We're told Arredondo has a son who was found home alone when authorities investigated.
