HEMET, Calif. (KABC) — Authorities say a dispute over a rental agreement lead to the death of three women whose bodies were found inside a home in Hemet and that their roommate is one of the suspects who has been arrested on suspicion of killing them.

Jordan Guzman, 20, lived in the home with the three victims and was arrested Thursday along with her 18-year-old boyfriend, Anthony McCloud, according to authorities.

The victims, identified as Trinity Clyde, 18, Wendy Lopez-Araiza, 46 and her daughter, Genesis Lopez-Araiza, 21, were found dead at a home near the intersection of Rabbit Peak Way and Rexford Drive on Wednesday night, police said.

Authorities say they died of blunt force trauma and strangulation. Signs of a stabbing were also present, but it’s unclear whether a knife was used.

“I know they were trying to get her to move out, I believe,” said Cheryl Mead, a family member of the Lopez-Araizas. “I guess that this is how she retaliated, which is pretty horrific.”

Police say the father of one of the victims walked into the home when Guzman and McCloud were still there but they fled. It’s unclear if that man is the same one that appeared at the scene and identified himself as Clyde’s father. He said his daughter had recently moved into the home.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the victims’ families.

Further information was not disclosed and the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact Sgt. Gomez at 951-765-2396 or leave an anonymous tip with the department at (951) 765-3897.
