Santa Clara librarian Karen Saunders was reading about the tragic hit-and-run on the Mercury News Web site just before 10 a.m. when she realized that last week she had talked with the wanted man - Cecil Cox, 66. Astonished, she looked around the library and thought she saw him again.
She turned away for a moment but didn't see him when she looked back. That's when she ran downstairs to the library garage with the car description and license plate number in hand. And there it was - the 1994 silver Infiniti that witnesses say struck and killed Oralia Puga Ramirez, 73, and Enedina Oliva, 70, on Saturday night.
"I immediately came upstairs and called police," Saunders said. A minute after they arrived, police found Cox at a computer surfing the Internet and took him away.
