TUCSON - News 4 Tucson obtained court documents that revealed shocking new details into the tragic deaths of a mother and daughter in Vail.

The 29 page report detailed what Pima County Sheriff's detectives uncovered in their investigation.

The court document revealed deputies found the bodies of 43-year-old Sandra Enriquez and 15-year-old Isabelle Enriquez “covered in blood” and "in a tub."

The suspect and father Hernando Enriquez was found outside the house in a wash. 

He was "covered in blood,” according to deputies. 

The suspect told deputies, “Just go ahead and kill me." He repeated, "Just go ahead and kill me."

Detectives wrote, "We do have a definitive murder weapon at this time we do have the knife that was under him, covered in blood."

The documents showed the son was able to escape after his father tried to kill him. He ran to a neighbor’s house for help.

The son told investigators, "His dad had been under the care of a doctor." 

Enriquez had insomnia and was suffering from depression.  He was taking prescription medications.

The detectives asked a judge for a blood test on the father and to take away any medication.

The report said, at 4:03 pm a 911 call came in and said that a young male came to a neighbor’s house and told him "his dad tried to kill him."

The caller said the young man had a large amount of blood on him and obvious injuries, including what appeared to be a severe head wound.

The 17-year-old son told detectives, "he was at school and his father called him to come home early."

When he got home his father met him outside.  He said his "dad was acting strange."

He asked about his mom and his sister and was told by his father, “they were playing some kind of game inside and he needed his son's help to clean up."

As they walked into the front door, his father reached down and grabbed something. "He described it as a possible hammer or tire iron or a piece of a jack stand."

The father began to "attack him" and began to make quotes like, "Just let me do what I need to do. I'm taking away your mom and sister and I need to finish this."

Officials said the son has been released from the hospital.  The father hasn't and will be booked into the Pima County Jail upon release.
