While police in Arizona were investigating the death of a man found in his car, they uncovered cell phone videos which revealed he killed a woman and threw her down a well.
William Cahill, 45, was found dead in the driver's seat of a car Sunday, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. Police believe he killed himself.
“A hose was connected to the tailpipe of the vehicle and ran into the car to fill the cab of the vehicle with carbon monoxide,” police stated.
As they investigated his death, police found multiple videos on Cahill’s cell phone, “which were accompanied by a note telling someone to watch video clips on the phone.”
In at least one of the clips, police said Cahill confessed that he shot his girlfriend “Daisy” twice before putting her body in a well, located in the desert.
“Daisy” was later identified as 37-year-old Carolyn Dahlgren, police said. By Tuesday, they were able to find her body, which had been thrown down a private desert well in Goodyear. Police described the well as “a concrete slab with a metal well shaft, approximately 900 feet deep and 18”-20” in diameter.”
Police hired a private well company to recover the body, which was about 360 feet down the well, according to police. Her body was recovered Tuesday night.
It’s unclear when she was killed or when Cahill died. Police say it’s still an open investigation.
