Man Accused Of Murdering A Missing 29-Year-Old Mother

A man has been held in the death of a 29-year-old mom in Texas who went missing after moving on a date in July, according to reports on Wednesday.

Ricardo Marquez, 28, is accused of killing Erika Andrea Gaytan inside his east El Paso home, and that he allegedly used his brother’s Jeep to transfer her body.

Authorities said the lady’s body has not been obtained.

“Her body has not been found, but based on forensic and other evidence gathered over the course of the investigation, detectives have reason to believe that she is deceased and was the victim of a murder,” police spokesman Enrique Carrillo said in a statement, The Associated Press reported.

Police had announced a missing person alarm in July describing Gaytan as “endangered.”

Her family informed her missing on July 16, and they said it was uncharacteristic of her to leave her 7-year-old son back.

Gaytan was last listened from July 13 after going to the “El Reencuentro Norteno” concert at the El Paso County Coliseum.

Marquez’s suspension affidavit said he and Gaytan visited the concert together, and he was the last person to have been observed with her.

Marquez told officials he and Gaytan drove to his home later the concert and got into a fight.

The arrest affidavit said the alleged murderer asked his brother through a text message to borrow his Jeep Wrangler at 11 a.m. on July 14. Fifteen minutes next, Marquez asked his sister for a shovel and picked it up 10 minutes later that, according to the affidavit.

The shovel was taken as evidence, as well as sand-filled footwear “visually constant with the sand in the desert region off East Montana,” authorities said.

Investigators said they discovered what seems to be blood in the Jeep.
