Milpitas Police chase man suspected of killing ex-girlfriend

The Milpitas Police Department (MPD) has opened a murder investigation 2 days into the new year, after receiving a call on Sunday from a party who was concerned about a friend. The friend, a woman, had expressed fear to the caller over being followed by an ex-boyfriend.

The last time the caller had spoken to the friend, they’d advised her to contact the police about her ex.

The caller reached MPD yesterday at around a quarter to 1 in the afternoon. Police headed over to Dixon Road and North Milpitas Boulevard. Upon arrival, they saw a car speed out of the parking lot. 

According to a witness, there was a dead woman inside of it. 

MPD vehicles chased the exiting car, which sped next door into Fremont, where it crashed. The driver was injured—both from the accident and from what appeared to be self-harm. 

In the car’s backseat, police found the victim’s body. She had apparently been attacked and killed with a weapon. She and the suspect were known to each other and, consistent with the earlier info from the victim’s friend, had dated at one time. 

Said a press release from MPD, “Detectives from our Criminal Investigations Bureau are still piecing together the sequence of events leading up to the call for service. Multiple crime scenes have been located, including a city owned parking lot at 1265 N Milpitas Boulevard. The crime scenes are being processed by evidence technicians.”
