Just before 6 p.m. Saturday, a Yavapai County Sheriff's deputy located the vehicle of a murder suspect in an area off AZ 89A and the Prescott's Granite Dells Parkway. The wanted murder suspect, 29-year-old William Hewitt of Mayer, was found dead inside the vehicle from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Friday afternoon, Sheriff's officers were called to a remote area south of Mayer where the body of a woman was found and declared her a murder victim. The woman was discovered around 1:30 p.m. Friday.
The woman killed has been tentatively identified as 38-year-old Kristina Webb, a resident of Mayer. Hewitt was Webb's boyfriend and lived with Webb and her 5-year-old-son in the Mayer area. Webb suffered a gunshot wound in the incident.
The victim's 5-year-old son was present when Hewitt killed his mother. The child is currently in protective custody.
Witnesses reported last seeing Hewitt about 10:45 a.m. that day traveling on Main Street in Mayer driving westbound in his tan 1979 Ford Pick-up, with an Arizona license. Citizens were warned not to approach Hewitt and that he may be armed.
