On May 16, 2003, Houston authorities say that Arturo Velazquez-Celon and Zoila Salcedo left Zoila's apartment, it was the last time that Zoila was ever seen again. Five days later, her vehicle was found at Arturo's apartment complex. When police examined Arturo's apartment, they found evidence of a struggle and blood matching Zoila's DNA, along with her purse and driver's license.
On June 6, 2003, authorities issued an arrest warrant for Arturo once they classified Zoila's disappearance as a homicide case. He apparently purchased a bus ticket to San Luis, Mexico hours after Zoila disappeared. The friend of his who drove him to the bus stop said that Arturo seemed really eager to get out of Houston and he even had Zoila's phone with him. Arturo's family in Mexico have claimed not to have heard from him. The body of Zoila has not been recovered.
Based on investigating agencies, it is advised to contact Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS if you have any information on Arturo's whereabouts.

Thoughts? When Charley Project mentioned "San Luis, Mexico", I'm not sure if they meant the border city near Arizona or the state of San Luis Potosi in Central Mexico. There is a lot of evidence against Arturo in regards to this case, even if Zoila's body is never recovered. Hopefully Zoila's family can give her a proper burial and justice is obtained at some point.
