In Pursuit With John Walsh: Carlos Torres and Bill Brockbrader
Case one: Elevia Vigil/Carlos Torres
Elevia Vigil was an aspiring photographer who hailed from Mexico. She came to the USA in hopes of becoming a citizen and living the American Dream.
However, on June 22, 2014, her lifelong dream came to a tragic end when she was brutally murdered.
Her sister Karina recalls that fateful morning. Their mother Blanca told her to go wake Elevia up for work, but there was no answer. Karina assumed she was ignoring her, so she went back to sleep.
Later on that day, the both of them went to check in on her, only to be met with silence. They noticed the AC unit and curtains were off the window, so they broke in to find her dead. She was nude, bruised and suffocated.
Investigators take a look around and realize Carlos Torres, Elevia’s boyfriend, was involved. Karina had seen his car in the driveway the night of the murder and just assumed they were hanging out. When he was gone the next day, she figured he had gone home.
Authorities want to question Carlos, but he tells them that he is eating and watching football, so they need to talk to him later. They are shocked that he is reacting this way over his girlfriend’s death.
That night, he confirms he was with Elevia that night for dinner and drinks, but the timeline doesn’t add up.
More details emerge, claiming that Carlos was controlling and abusive. He even threatened her after their breakup.
The two of them decided to talk….on the day of the murder.
Carlos is questioned again. His story changed in terms of the timeline and authorities are concerned over the fact that he had no feelings over the murder….even though they were engaged.
As the investigation continues, they discover that his alibi is false. He contacts his friend Edder, who confesses that he knows that Carlos killed Elevia after discovering pictures of another male on his phone.
Carlos is found in December and put in jail. His family is able to get him out, under the condition that he wears an ankle monitor. He is also given a plea deal of 60 years in jail.
However, he is soon on the run after cutting off his ankle monitor. He disappeared on February 15th, 2015. He took his dad’s vehicle and abandoned it while on the run. He was last spotted by the Texas/Mexico border and possibly crossed the border.
Karina is terrified he might come back and hurt the family or might use his charm to harm someone else.
John gives information on Carlos, last seen in Larado, Texas. He is 5’7″, 180 lbs with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a tribal tattoo on his right shoulder and skills as an electrician. He also likes nice cars and is possibly getting support from his family.

Throughout the years, he is arrested and held in prison, the whole time refusing to register as a sex offender. He has not been seen since March 2015.
Callahan Walsh interviews US Marshalls involved in the case, as well as his ex-wife’s family to paint a picture of Bill’s life. His ex-father in law talks about the abuse his younger daughter faced at the hands of Bill. (out of respect for the victim, I won’t go into details.)

Once she was told exactly what was going on, she went back to Utah and found out more disturbing details about his actions. (Once again, out of respect for the victims, details will not be revealed.)
As Tana discusses details about Bill, it is discovered that he was abusing more victims and putting out videos about the accusations against him, as well as lies about his military career.
He even goes as far as to blame his victims for everything. The victims who have seen the videos and accusations call it a slap in the face as she recalls the painful memories of the abuse.
Bill is now on the run and has been for the past six years. He is 6’5″, has green eyes and is about 175 lbs. He also has a lot of tattoos, frequents strip clubs and may use the alias Bill Wood.
