Andres Avalos, shown here with his wife, Amber, is suspected of killing his wife, neighbor and pastor Thursday in Bradenton, Florida.

Triple murder suspect Andres “Andy” Avalos has been caught in Florida after allegedly killing his wife, pastor and neighbor Thursday.

Deputies found the 33-year-old hiding out at the Pine Haven Mobile Home Park which is only two blocks from the Bayshore Baptist Church where Avalos allegedly killed Pastor James Battle, the Bradenton Herald reported.

The suspect spent two days on the run after Manatee County Sheriff’s Office found the bodies of his wife, Amber Avalos, and neighbor, Denise Potter.

His wife’s relative is not surprised by Avalos’ suspected crimes.

“He’s crazy, he’s psychotic,” his sister-in-law told the Bradenton Herald.

The killings may have been motivated by domestic situation and were not random, Sheriff’s spokesman Dave Bristow said.

“The pastor saw this coming,” Sheriff Brad Steube said of Battle’s death. Avalos reportedly shot the 31-year-old down during a face-to-face confrontation outside the church.
