The assailant subsequently fled the scene. His vehicle was later found near the motel. When officers came into the room, they found the body of Segura-Montera who had already taken his own life. The authorities have ruled the suicide a result of poison.
The county medical examiner's office will now try confirm the cause and manner of their deaths.
