PHOENIX - Authorities say they questioned an “investigative lead’’ in their investigation of last weekend’s killing of a young Scottsdale couple.

Investigators spoke Thursday with Michael Villers, who was considered an investigative lead but isn’t a suspect, said Yavapai County Sheriff spokeswoman Susan Quayle.

Villers, 34, is cooperating with investigators.

Brandon Rumbaugh, 20, and Lisa Gurrieri, 19, were each shot in the head multiple times as they slept in the bed of a pickup truck. The couple was camping in a remote but popular desert area in Yavapai County.

The pair told family and friends that they would camp out to celebrate the one-year anniversary of their first date a desert spot off Interstate 17, about five miles south of the Sunset Point campground.

Their parents reported them missing when Rumbaugh didn’t show up for work.
