[ARCHIVED] Additional Arrest made in Sasha Krause Homicide Investigation

Glendale, AZ – On 05/03/20 Detectives with the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of Agents from the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI), and the Office of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, arrested Samuel David Gooch after he was contacted in Surprise, AZ.

The arrest stemmed from an incident in which Samuel Gooch made arrangements via a telephone call to take possession of a firearm which Mark Gooch had given to a 3rd party. Samuel flew from Wisconsin to Phoenix with another family member for this meeting. Detectives, working with AFOSI Agents, facilitated the meeting in which Samuel took possession of the firearm he believed to be the one belonging to Mark. 

Samuel was arrested and booked into the Maricopa County Sheriff Office 4th Ave Jail for Hindering Prosecution in the First Degree and Attempting to Tamper with Physical Evidence in the ongoing investigation of the murder of Sasha KRAUSE.  The other family was released without charges at this time.

Following the arrest of Mark Gooch, detectives had collected the firearm connected to him which was being stored at an unrelated residence in the Phoenix area.

This investigation is ongoing and additional charges are pending.
