WOODLAND, Calif. (KCRA) —
Police confirmed a missing woman from Williams, whose sister was killed by a suspected wrong-way driver on I-5, was found dead in a Woodland parking lot, and investigators are calling it a homicide.
Karen Garcia, 21, was last seen at 11:30 a.m. Jan. 8. She told a friend she was going to either Roseville or Vacaville to go shopping to clear her head after her younger sister, along with her four friends, were killed in a crash, according to Williams police.
When Garcia didn't show up that night for her sister's vigil, her family reported her missing.
Someone called officers about 3:45 p.m. Sunday about a body inside a parked car in a Marshalls parking lot.
Detectives determined the car was Garcia's, and it was the missing woman inside.
Karen Garcia and her mother worked at Granzella's Deli Restaurant in Williams.
“Karen was very well-liked, very respectful. She didn’t have an enemy," General Manager Dino McCarty said. “Always kind, always a smile on her face, always happy -- a great spirit.”
Colusa police searched the home of Salvador Garcia, Jr. and found evidence of a homicide. He is Karen Garcia's ex-boyfriend and the father of her 2-year-old daughter, Colusa Police Chief Josh Fitch said, adding the two lived together on and off.
The 2-year-old girl is with Karen Garcia's mother, according to Fitch.
Investigators believe Karen Garcia was killed on Jan. 8, but her body wasn't found for days.
No additional details about how Karen Garcia was killed have been released.
This is the second tragedy for Karen Garcia's family in a week.
Her sister, 19-year-old Jessica Garcia, was one of five people killed when a wrong-way driver slammed into their vehicle about 12:30 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 7, on I-5 in the town of Yolo as the group was on their way home from dinner.
"We are praying for Jessica and now what happened to Karen-- I don’t understand,” said Jose Martin-Vega, a cousin of the sisters. “What person would do this, when someone has already died, and then to cause another death?"
The close-knit Williams community has lost six lives under the age of 25 in less than a week.
“Everyone is kind of devastated right now,” Williams resident Benjamin Perez said. "There’s a lot of family who lost a lot of friends, so everyone is pretty shook up"
“We are trying to come together. We are trying to lean on each other and give hugs," McCarty said. "Everybody knows everybody here in this small community. So it’s very tough, very tough.”
The Refuge Restaurant and Bar is hosting a taco fundraiser, at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday until closing. All proceeds, donations and tips will go to the families affected by both tragedies.
“Money doesn’t bring people back, at least it’d be able to help support em,” Refuge bartender Abel Godoy said.
Granzella's will hold a spaghetti fundraiser on Monday to raise money for Karen and Jessica Garcia's funerals.
“Two losses, great losses," McCarty said. "We’re not sure how Gloria, or any mother, could handle that.”

Thoughts? This case is terrible and just an unnecessary piling on of tragedy for the Williams community- and the family of Karen Garcia, who have lost both her and Jessica while a 2 year-old girl now has to grow up without her mother.
And according to another article, Karen is believed to have died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head: sacramento.cbslocal.com/2018/01/17/karen-garcia-cause-of-death/
And Salvador is nowhere to be seen so this just continues to get worse.
Although for legal and fairness purposes, I always use the word "allegedly", my personal feeling is Salvador Garcia Jr
is an "alleged" piece of sh**.
