Police believe the two people were once a couple, which makes this the second domestic-violence murder in Pasco in just the last couple weeks.
The discovery of the woman's body sent police searching for her murderer, which resulted in a raid on an apartment on N. 4th Ave., behind the Airport Motel. SWAT was sent in, but the suspect was not found. Two cars were also towed in connection to the raid.
Police eventually found 31-year old, Gregorio Luna-Luna at an empty home on Sycamore. He was arrested.
KEPR discovered this is the same man who touched off an Amber Alert in January after police said he kidnapped his own son in the middle of the night. The boy was found safely.
We have attached that previous story to this one as well.
Luna-Luna is awaiting formal charges for murder from the Franklin County Prosecutor's office.
