According to an arrest report obtained by FOX5 on Friday, homicide suspect Frank Interlicchia injected heroin just minutes prior to a double slaying at a Las Vegas apartment Tuesday.

About 12:13 p.m. Tuesday, police were summoned to an apartment complex located in the 5000 block of Palo Verde Road, near Tropicana Avenue, in response to a call about a fight.

About a minute later, police received a call from a woman identified as Mary May. May said Interlicchia, 50, was inside her apartment and was armed with a pair of scissors. She further said Interlicchia was a heroin addict, had kicked her door in and had armed himself with a baseball bat.

When police and medical personnel arrived, they found the door to the apartment Interlicchia was in was locked. However, they could hear noises and feared for the safety of the people inside.

An officer kicked the door in and found Interlicchia standing over the body of a victim identified as Robin Naples. The second victim, Kelly Naples, husband of Robin Naples, was located nearby.

When he was taken into custody, Interlicchia told police, “Some guys came through the door and [I] had to bash them.”

Officers located a bloody claw hammer and wrench near the bodies.

Interlicchia told police he had been living with May, with whom he had a romantic relationship, but that they had fought a few months prior and he had moved out. 

May told investigators that prior to the slaying Interlicchia had come to her apartment “bleeding from oozing heroin injection sites” and attacked her roommate, Ben Richards. The report states Interlicchia then attacked Kelly Naples and another man, Randall Kurtz. He then killed Kelly and Robin Naples, the report states.

During an interview at Clark County Detention Center, Interlicchia said he was a heroin user and injected about a gram of black heroin every day. He further said he had injected heroin about noon that day and that he would inject methamphetamine when he could.

Interlicchia is facing two counts of open murder and one count of home invasion.
