Suspects are still on the loose — and Jupiter police remain tight-lipped about the case — on what happened at 1105 Mohawk Street the night of the Feb. 5 Super Bowl when three people in their 20s were slain.

Jupiter police are not commenting on the specifics of the case.

“We are working with the (Palm Beach County) state attorney’s office,” Jupiter Police Spokesman Brad Vince said.

Jupiter resident Christopher Vasata, so far the only person arrested in the murders that stunned the town, waived his right to a speedy trial June 20.

The state intends to seek the death penalty against Vasata, who for now is the only suspect in the shootings in the Jupiter River Estates neighborhood off Indiantown Road.

Vasata, 24, faces three counts of first-degree murder as well as other felony charges in the shooting deaths of El-Salhy, 24, of Gainesville; Kelli J. Doherty, 20, of Tequesta; and Sean P. Henry, 26, of Jupiter. Charles Vorpagel, 27, who rented the house, was arrested Feb. 9 on a federal firearms charge.

Vasata’s next court hearing is Sept. 11.
