Two young people found dead in a car in a parking lot in San Antonio, Texas, are believed to be a missing pregnant 18-year-old woman and her boyfriend. According to the police, it may have been a murder.
18-year-old Savanah Soto went missing on Friday. According to the police, she was last seen around 2:00 p.m. in Leon Valley, Texas, where she lived with her boyfriend. The family reported the girl missing because her due date had passed a few days earlier and she had not shown up for her hospital appointment. On Sunday, her mother wrote on Facebook that she was worried about her daughter.
The missing 18-year-old is probably dead
From the beginning, the officers informed that the girl’s health and safety may be at risk, which is why a special Clear Alert was activated during the search. On the night of December 26, San Antonio police reported that two bodies, most likely of the couple, were found in a car parked in a parking lot belonging to Soto’s partner, 23-year-old Matthew Guerra. The police are waiting for the autopsy results to officially confirm this information.
William McManus, the chief of police in San Antonio, said that officers suspected the couple’s murder. However, the circumstances of the incident are very complicated, so they cannot be sure yet. He added that the bodies could have been in the vehicle for 3-4 days.
American media note that in 2022, another tragedy struck the Soto family. The girl’s 15-year-old brother, Ethan, was fatally shot.
