The tragic Weld County deaths of Alisha Johns and her mom, Sheri Pachello, as well as the suicide of Cimmeron Johns, Alisha's husband and the women's presumed killer, may have taken place late last week, but the story may not be over.

A friend of Cimmeron could conceivably face charges, since she says he told her about killings but didn't immediately inform police.

Photos, video and more below.

At approximately 10 p.m. on February 6, according to the Weld County Sheriff's Office, deputies received a report about a husband, Cimmeron, chasing his wife and her mother, Pachello. The women were in a gold colored SUV, while Cimmeron was in a dark-colored car.

The last known location of Pachello (the WCSO lists her first name as "Sherri," but her Facebook page spells it "Sheri") was in Frederick, the community where Cimmeron lived. His house, located at 6294 Clayton Street, can be seen in the following interactive graphic; if you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map."

Law enforcers canvassing the area soon found a crash site, as well as a vehicle that matched the description of the one said to have been following Alisha and her mom: a 1992 Mercedes.

The car wasn't owned by Cimmeron. As noted by the Denver Post, it belonged to a friend of his, Rosann O'Donnell.

Witnesses had seen the SUV, a 1991 Ford Explorer, and the Mercedes speeding away from Cimmeron's house. Given that the Mercedes had been found in a snowy field, investigators assumed the SUV was under Cimmeron's control.

But the women were nowhere to be found, and that was alarming, given that late last month, Alisha had contacted authorities to reveal that Cimmeron had been abusing her.

The woman who aided this POS by allowing him to use her car, then kept quiet about the murders....should be charged as an accomplice. If not for her car, he would noit have been able to chase down and slaughter these women.

I knew Cim. He was never any good. Never. Prayers for Alicia, her mom and the kids. Shit is sad but not surprising at all, unfortunately.

I have one friend who was their neighbor and another friend who knows the brother/son. This was such a huge tragedy for our community. My heart goes out to the family and friends.

@IfObamaHadASon  ... another "Law Abiding Gun Owner"  touted by Guntards and Teabaggers ... right up to the moment he decided to kidnap and kill with his gun.

@alesia.bickford  ... so why not charge the GUN manufacturer and ammo retailer too, if not for the gun and ammo, he wouldn't have been able to shoot and kill them.

You think GOD has something to do with what's going on on the planet? We are fucking dumb animals. No more. No less. Your sense of self importance and 'uniqueness' in the universe shows just how ignorant you are to your surroundings. No one is coming to 'save' us, moron. Grow up.
