SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Santa Cruz police detectives spent about 20 minutes interviewing Jeremy Goulet before he ambushed them, shooting and killing them before they could call for help, Santa Cruz County Sheriff Phil Wowak said Thursday.

Goulet, who had a plane ticket and passport in his possession, was under investigation for a break-in and alleged sexual assault of a former co-worker. He's also being investigated by the Sheriff's Office in connection with a sexual assault of a child, adding to an already lengthy list of sexual and violence-related arrests stemming back more than a decade, not all of which the Santa Cruz detectives were aware of at the time.
