Jose Gallegos, 27, had called the Harris County Sheriff’s Homicide Squad to confess the murder of Nitzie Valencia, 28, after she was shot dead Wednesday at Block 22100 on Diane Drive in Spring, Texas.
During his confession, Gallegos told detectives that if they found him, he would be dead, according to Ed Gonzalez, Harris County Sheriff.
His body was later found by the New Mexico State Police in his car parked near tribal land in Albuquerque. He was found dead from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Valencia’s family members told Eyewitness News that she lived with Gallegos before moving to stay with her mother two to three days before the incident.
She had returned from the gym with a family friend who lived next door to Gallegos.
According to investigators, her ex-boyfriend shot her and a family friend in their home.
The family friend was rushed to the hospital after being grazed by a bullet.
The surviving victim told ABC13 that a dog was also reportedly fatally shot in the house.
Valencia’s mother Betty said she knew something was wrong after her only daughter failed to respond to her text message.
“She is my daughter,” she said to Click2Houston. ‘I’m so sad. He killed her. I do not know why. I do not understand.’
She added that her daughter and Gallegos had a rocky relationship for the past nine years.
“I think he asked for a (second) chance and she said nothing more,” she said.
“He’s jealous of her. (He’s a) jealous man, and he killed her. ‘
A GoFundMe page has been set up for Valencia to help with funeral expenses.
