Such a tragedy. Arizona native Luis turned himself into the police after torturing and murdering his girlfriend Becky with a dumbbell, and then dumping her body in the bath.
Rebecca Kasper, 19, was found with her bashed face “unrecognizable” in a blood-spattered bathroom on April 23, after her boyfriend Luis Soltero turned himself into the police for her murder. Luis, 22, arrived at Tempe Police Department substation, where he admitted to the crime and was charged with first-degree premeditated murder and ordered held on $1 million bond. Becky’s body was found with a bloody dumbbell and a confession note next to it. So sad.
Becky Kasper Murdered By Boyfriend Luis Soltero
Becky, originally from South Cloud, Minnesota, was a junior majoring in marketing at the Arizona State University when she was killed, reports the Daily Mail.
Becky and Luis lived together, and neighbors often complained of hearing them argue, while Becky’s boss said she showed up to work on several occasions covered in bruises. They started dating last fall.
This is just so sad.
Her decomposing body was found in her apartment near the ASU campus by officers, and she was covered with blankets and a yoga mat, with coffee grounds and baking soda sprinkled on top. Becky’s head was covered with a plastic bag, and her face was described as “unrecognizable” from horrific blunt-force trauma.
Her wrists and ankles had been tied, and there was blood splattered on the walls. A bloody dumbbell and a confession note was found next to her body.
The chilling note read:
I did not treat her right. She deserved better but never accepted it. So I had to make the choice for her. She died on 420 not because of drugs, but because a sociopath talked and treated her nice…I don’t know where to go from here. Do I kill again, end it with myself or become invisible.
Luis Soltero Turned Himself Into The Police After Murdering His Girlfriend
Luis turned himself into the police three days after killing Becky.
He handed an officer his ID card and Becky’s Minnesota driver’s license and said “My girlfriend is there and she is dead, and I am not going to tell you anything more without an attorney,” reports the Phoenix News Times.
Luis was taken to the Tempe Police Department, where he asked an officer: “Do they still have final meals on death row? I was wondering if I can order something from Texas,” according to court documents.
Dan Kasper Speaks About His Daughter’s Murder
‘This is like lightning out of the clear blue sky, we had no idea that this was coming,’ said Becky’s dad Dan Kasper, according to CBS5 AZ.
“She’s our daughter, and I just think her story is worth telling,” he said, adding that he never suspected Luis as being so evil. “He was quiet, laid back and easy going, seemed like a good kid,” he said.
Becky’s university released a statement expressing their condolences.
“ASU extends its sincere condolences to her family and friends at this difficult time,” the statement read. “Counseling services for those who knew Kasper are being made available to the university community.”
This is a truly tragic case. Our thoughts go out to Becky’s family.
