Douglas County sheriff releases sketch of suspect in Winchester double homicide

A composite sketch of the man suspected of killing two people Oct. 22 in Winchester has been released by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies described the suspect as an approximately 40-year-old Hispanic man who stands 6 feet tall. He reportedly has a thick Hispanic accent, as well as short hair and stubbly facial hair. He was wearing a black or dark-colored hooded sweatshirt during the shooting, deputies said.

Brittney Langford and her father, Michael Tellone, were fatally shot around 9:30 p.m. outside a trailer Langford shared with her husband, Chris Langford, in the 5700 block of Northeast Stephens Street in Winchester.
