Louis Gabriel Ramos, 27, was arrested in Arizona by the FBI’s office in Phoenix after fleeing from New York. It is believed that Ramos was ‘possibly’ on his way to the U.S. border with Mexico

A man connected to the double murders of a mother and daughter found brutally stabbed to death at their home in Yonkers was arrested after fleeing to Arizona in an attempt to cross the US-Mexico border. 

Yonkers Police Commissioner John Mueller said Luis Gabriel Ramos, 27, was arrested on Wednesday in Salome, Arizona, where his extradition to New York is pending. 

Ramos, faces two felony charges of second-degree murder for the stabbing murder which is believed to have taken place sometime on Halloween weekend, between Friday, October 29, and when the two were found on Tuesday, November 2.

Authorities believe the suspect drove to Arizona from New York after carrying out the double murder.

The two victims have been identified as Isabella Triano, 70, and her 38-year-old daughter, Trisha Miller.  

The motive for their deaths was not immediately known, but police confirmed that this was not a random killing, as they believe the victims knew the suspect.

‘We want to make sure that the public understands that they can rest easy that there’s not someone out here doing this kind of thing on a random basis,’ Yonkers Police Commissioner Mueller said. ‘We think that the perpetrator knew the victims.’ 

Authorities added that they were able to track down one of Ramos’ ex-girlfriends, who gave them valuable information on the perpetrator’s location.   

Triano and Miller were found in their home on Shipman Avenue with apparent ‘knife trauma’ on Tuesday after a friend asked for a welfare check Monday afternoon, when she had not heard from one of them for several days.

Miller was last seen on Friday, which prompted the call for the wellness check. She worked at a nearby Burger King, while her mother was a custodian at Saunders High School.

Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, Mueller praised his department’s work, the help of the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office and also the FBI Phoenix Fugitive Taskforce for apprehending Ramos about 150 miles from the border in Arizona. 

He added that the investigation was especially challenging because of a hoarding situation at the home, and investigators needed to wear HazMat suits. Neighbors have previously complained about the house, according to ABC 7 News.

Department of Public Works trucks have been hauling garbage bags full of items that were filling the outside area and inside the home. 

Local authorities said it could take some time before police are done collecting evidence due to the amount of personal items spread out both inside and outside of the home. 

Authorities say there was also a hoarding condition inside the home, and bags of trash and other debris circling the outside area - hampering the investigation

Police added that this was not the first time that Ramos had gotten into legal trouble. He was recently arrested on October 26 in Wappingers Falls for felony arson, but was then released on his own recognizance.

Meanwhile, one of the victims, Triano-Carpio was an employee of the Yonkers Public Schools for 24 years. 

In a statement today, the district said ‘Ms. Triano-Carpio began her career in 1997 as a custodial worker at Museum Middle School and in 2005 transferred to Saunders Trades & Technical High School. This tragic passing significantly impacts the staff and students at Saunders where she spent her last 16 years.

‘Ms. Triano-Carpio epitomized a valued employee who was conscientious about her work and was a beloved member of the school’s family. She is fondly remembered as a caring and kind individual who always ask with a smile, how are you doing and how is your family.’
