In Pursuit with John Walsh Recap for Blood in the Streets

-This week’s In Pursuit with John Walsh is titled Blood in the Streets and is following several unsolved cases.

 

CASE 1:

-In 2022, a young woman named Carmerina ‘Carmen’ Trujillo disappeared from Pflugerville, Texas. A few days later, her boyfriend Luis Montes would also be reported missing. Little did anyone know the dark turn this case would take.

-On January 25th, 2022, Detective Javier Hernandez of the Travis County Sheriff’s Office was working on a missing persons case. Luis’s family had reported missing despite being home earlier that day. At the request of his boss, he began working on the case, discovering that he was dating Carmen, who would also be reported as missing by her family. Javier had initially gone to Carmen’s house to question her about Luis, but her daughter Emily told him that she had not seen her mother since the day before.

-Carmen was a single mom who moved to the area to give her children a better life. Her daughters Emily and Elisabeth were confused and didn’t think that their mother would leave voluntarily. They kept calling her, but got no answer, making them more and more worried.

-The police questioned the girls, who would say that despite the fact that Luis and Carmen had a good relationship initially, he would often love bomb her and give off weird vibes. Carmen had wanted to break up with him, but he convinced her to stay in the relationship.

-Police headed to Carmen’s job, where her boss Amin said she was well-loved by customers. She worked as a cook and people would often come to see her. Amin recalled one incident shortly before she disappeared where someone was spotted under her car. At first, he thought someone was fixing her car, but it turned out someone believed to be Luis put a tracking device on her car. By now, Carmen had had enough and ended things.

-Emily and Elisabeth went on their own to search for their mother, going to Luis’s house to question his dad. He’d claimed that Luis and Carmen were arguing and that they both left, with Carmen leaving everything behind, including her phone. The girls took the phone and called Luis and someone they believe to be him answered. They have a strange interaction and go to the police, leading to a CLEAR alert to be released. This is something only used in cases where an adult is believed to be in danger.
