UPDATE** An arrest has been made last night in the disappearance of Morgan Hill teen Sierra LaMar.
It has been over 2 months since LaMar went missing on her way to school. Although a body has not been found yet, they have charged Antolin Garcia-Torres with kidnapping and murder.
Law enforcement has been watching Antolin Garcia-Torres since March after finding forensic evidence pointing to him in her bag that contained her clothes neatly folded along with her medication. They impounded his car several weeks ago as well.
Antolin Garcia-Torres is a 21 year old Morgan Hill resident. They think that there is no connection between him and LaMar and that this was a random stranger abduction. Law enforcement has also linked Antolin Garcia-Torres to 3 other assaults on women/girls in the Morgan Hill area although police remain tight lipped about who these other victims are.
Searches still go on to find the remains of Sierra Lamar. Extensive searches have been conducted in the local waterways in the last 8-9 weeks. They have yet to come up with any remains and the perp. has not cooperated so far revealing any of this information.
This is a sad day for the family of Sierra LaMar. However, a huge relief to know that a very dangerous man to any woman has been taken off the streets. Garcia-Torres was arrested last night at around 6:30pm at his job at Safeway without incident. He still has claimed innocence since the arrest.
Hopefully this guy will be put away for life so he is no longer a threat to society via him.
