The body of missing mother of two, Weltzin Garcia discovered two months after her estranged boyfriend, Alfonso Hernandez’s remains discovered. A case of domestic violence gone awry?
A body found in a Dallas, Texas lake last week has been identified as mother-of-two who’d been reported missing along with her boyfriend over two months ago.
The body of Weltzin Garcia, 26, was found by a kayaker on Mountain Creek Lake, adjacent to her hometown of Grand Prairie. The remains of 28-year-old Alfonso Hernandez were found on Feb. 17 in White Rock Lake, northeast of downtown Dallas.
Garcia and Hernandez were reported missing on Feb. 5, approximately one week after Garcia obtained a protective order against Hernandez, who was wanted on a domestic violence warrant. Police found Hernandez’s car near White Rock Lake by pinging Garcia’s cellphone in the hours after their disappearance was reported.
Investigators have not released a cause of death for either Garcia or Hernandez. The couple’s children, aged 3 and 6 have been placed in the custody of Garcia’s twin sister, Atziry Mireles.
Mireles told the Dallas Morning News in February her sister had moved into their cousin’s house after a series of disputes with Hernandez. On the morning of Feb. 5, Mireles said, Hernandez texted a goodbye message to his family and her sister was nowhere to be seen.
Speculation has since mounted the man may have murdered Garcia before taking his own life in a suspected murder suicide.
