The legal documents of the case reveal that the clue that led to the identification and arrest of the alleged killer were images of a black Ford Expedition truck in which he escaped from the crime scene.
In the arrest warrant against Efraín Cisneros, consulted by MundoHispánico, the details of the crime are revealed and that it still contains many questions for the authorities.
At 12:00 on Saturday, September 26, 2020, the manager of the Super 7 motel, 10335 Gardner Road, went to a room to check why some clients had not left the room.
When the manager opened the door, he found three people shot dead on the beds of the rooms.
