The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is asking for your help in identifying the suspect. Yavapai Silent Witness is offering up to a $10,000.00 cash reward for information that leads to the arrest of the suspect in the 2003 double murder that occurred near Bumble Bee, Arizona.  

On Friday, October 17, 2003, Brandon Rumbaugh and his girlfriend Lisa Gurrieri left Scottsdale, AZ  for an overnight camping trip north of Phoenix. The couple borrowed a 2000 white Ford F-150 pickup truck and were to return the following day. When the couple did not return, friends and family began to search. Later, the couple’s bodies were found shot to death lying in the bed of the pick-up.  The truck was parked in a dirt parking area off Bumble Bee Road a short distance from Interstate 17. 

A borrowed video camera was missing from the scene with its case left behind. Also, a broken disposable camera was found 100 feet from the scene with some photos intact.  

One was a photo of the two victims in the back of a truck. This photo is believed to be the last photograph of them alive.

There was also a photograph of a light fixture on the inside of a building. Detectives are still trying to find out where that photo was taken.  

If you have any information that might assist in this investigation, we need to hear from you. To earn your reward, you must call Yavapai Silent Witness at  1-800-932-3232 or submit a tip at www.yavapaisw.com. All tips are always anonymous.
