Madison police name only suspect in Calypso Road homicide

Jose L. Vasquez-Garcia, 39, is the only suspect in last Wednesday’s homicide of his girlfriend Christina A. Hatcher, 24, on Calypso Road, according to an update from the Madison Police Department.

The Dane County Medical Examiner released Hatcher’s identity Friday night. According to the release, she died of “homicidal sharp force injuries,” but additional testing is underway.

Vasquez-Garcia is currently in the hospital after suffering burns in a car fire Tuesday afternoon. The Madison Fire Department was fighting the blaze when MPD officers arrived at the scene near Reindahl Park. The car belonged to Hatcher.

Paramedics treated Vasquez-Garcia before he was transported to the burn unit at the hospital. He was arrested for domestic strangulation, but has not been charged with anything yet.

The murder is Madison’s second in 2016 and remains under investigation.
