Man sought in Phoenix double homicide found dead

PHOENIX -- Authorities say a man wanted for questioning in the killings of a woman and her teenage daughter has been found dead at a Phoenix hotel.

Phoenix police say it appears 41-year-old Michael J. Blanco shot himself and a gun was found at the scene.

He was found dead Tuesday afternoon inside a room at the Knights Inn off the Black Canyon Highway where he had checked in Monday.

Police say a family member discovered the bodies of 42-year-old Christina Wilson and her 14-year-old daughter Vanessa Wilson on Monday at a Phoenix home.

They say there was no sign of forced entry to the house and multiple weapons were found inside.

Police say Blanco was Christina Wilson's live-in boyfriend and was a ``person of interest'' in the case.
