Two more suspects have been arrested in connection with the December 3, 2006, drive-by shooting and murder of Lindsay Key. Andres Fraire, 22, of Chandler, and Leonardo Sanchez, 24, of Apache Junction, have been booked for first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. More charges are expected.
Lindsay Key was murdered in a drive-by shooting while she was attending a party at 239 E. Erie Street in Chandler. It was around 12:30 AM when the four suspects – Rodrigo Romero, Francisco Cervantes, Andres Fraire, and Leonardo Sanchez – drove by the Erie Street residence and opened fire. Romero and Cervantes have been in custody on other charges and, earlier this year, were additionally booked with new charges to include first-degree murder, aggravated assault, and assisting a criminal street gang.
It was Silent Witness tips and the public coming forward that led the investigators to the latest arrests. Law enforcement officers from the Chandler Police Department Gang Unit and Criminal Apprehension Unit, and US Marshals followed up on the tips and leads and were able to make the Friday arrests.
The Chandler Police Department is encouraging anyone with information about this case to call 480-782-4130.
