MAMMOTH, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - The Pinal County Sheriff's Office is offering up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest in the case of a double murder in Mammoth last month.
On January 31, deputies were called to assist the Mammoth Police Department in the 400 block of South Main Street after police responded to a call of shots fired.
Mark Reynoso, 34, and Maria Desantiago, 28, were found dead with apparent gunshot wounds. 
Reynoso's father, Joe, found the couple outside their home, "“I pulled up and I found them right there. I put my hands on him.”  Reynoso relives that discovery daily. He lives nearby by, "I drive down this road and I see him every day right here. Every single day,” he said. 
“It has torn our family apart,” says Desantiago’s sister Marcela who says she has run out of things to tell her three nephews when they ask what happened to their mom.  “W need justice, we need answers. Her children need answers.”
Reynoso was set to face charges of manslaughter for a triple-fatal head-on collision on SR 77 from January 30, 2015, that claimed the lives of 53-year-old Rodger D. Fugett, 49-year-old Francisco R. Calzadillas, and 34-year-old Troy A. Brownrigg.
Family members are now making a plea to the public for any information that leads to the arrest of whoever killed their loved ones.
So far Pinal County investigators only have a vague idea of the type of car the killer drove. 

"Obviously there are people out there that have some information about this crime and we'd love to get that information or anything that leads us in the right direction," said Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact 9-1-1 or the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office or Silent Witness at 480-Witness.
