Police find phones linked to Grand Junction slaying suspect

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. ” Investigators said Friday they recovered two cell phones and two computers linked to a man suspected of killing two people and wounding two others last weekend in Grand Junction.

Police say Stefan Alexander Martin-Urban, 22, shot the victims and then committed suicide on Oct. 11.

Investigators say they found one cell phone in Martin-Urban’s car and another phone and two computers in a home in the Denver suburb of Lakewood where he was staying with a relative.

Investigators hope information from the phones and computers will help them retrace Martin-Urban’s movements and locate and interview people he knew.

Killed were 61-year-old Terry Fine and 60-year-old Floyce Gallagher, who were in the driveway of Fine’s house and were leaving on vacation with their spouses.

Fine’s wife, Linda, and a neighbor were wounded.

Gallagher’s husband, former Mesa State College President Michael Gallagher, rushed Linda Fine to the hospital in a car, with the suspect still firing shots as Gallagher drove off, police said.

Five bullets struck the car, with two hitting the top of the hood directly in front of the steering wheel, police said. One bullet was lodged in the dashboard, two went into the engine compartment, and two were found inside the passenger compartment, police said.
