The suspect linked to the recent shooting deaths of four professionals, including a prominent forensic psychiatrist involved in the JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation, in a three-day period was found dead in an Arizona hotel this morning, police said.

Scottsdale and Phoenix police traced the suspect linked to the four murders to the Extended Stay Hotel on North 69th Street. Authorities heard several shots fired inside a hotel room as officers closed in. Police did not fire any shots.

The suspect, who was not yet identified, was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Authorities confirmed today he was linked to at least three, and perhaps four, murders in Scottsdale and Phoenix, the latest occurring Saturday, when Marshall Levine, a psychologist and counselor, was found dead.

The possible fourth killing came after authorities linked three fatal shootings in two days. The first victim was identified by authorities as Steven Pitt, a forensic psychiatrist who worked on the high-profile investigation into the killing of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey, a beauty-pageant star found dead at her family’s home in Boulder, Colorado. Ramsey’s still-unsolved murder attracted national attention. A prosecutor cleared the girl’s parents and brother in 2008, based on DNA evidence.

Pitt was slain Thursday outside his office, police say. Besides the JonBenet Ramsey case, he also worked on the “Baseline Killer” serial murder case in the early 2000s, FOX 10 reported.
