SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah woman was identified as one of the victims of a double homicide that occurred on Jan. 30 at a military apartment complex in Vacaville, California, with the other victim being just 15 years old.
The Utah woman was identified as Savannah Theberge, 26. The other victim was a 15-year-old girl from Elk Grove, California; her family asked that she remain unidentified.
According to CBS 13 Sacramento, Vacaville police responded to a call around 1 a.m. reporting a livestream of Raymond Michael Weber, 26, holding a gun, with two women lying motionless on the floor at Rocky Hill Apartments, a military housing complex.
Police responded to the call along with SWAT and negotiation teams. Vacaville Police Department officials reported that their attempts to negotiate Weber's surrender were unsuccessful leading officers to evacuate nearby units and deploy chemical and distraction devices. Vacaville police said that after a nearly 8-hour standoff, officers entered the unit, tased Weber and took him into custody.
Enyaw Taylor-Theberge, the victim's mother, told CBS 13 that her daughter was engaged to Weber. Taylor-Theberge said that her daughter was a Utah resident and was employed in Utah but was in California to see Weber. Her mother states that Theberge is originally from Georgia.
Theberge leaves behind a 4-year-old son.
Weber is facing criminal charges, including two counts of first-degree murder and domestic assault. Human trafficking is being investigated as a factor, according to CBS 13.
A GoFundMe* has been created on Taylor-Theberge's behalf so that she can transport Theberge's body back to Georgia and cover her funeral expenses.
