On Saturday, an 18-year-old guy was arrested in Texas. They believe he’s connected to the tragic death of an 11-year-old girl. Sadly, they found her under a bed. Maria Gonzalez, the young girl, lived near Juan Carlos Garcia-Rodriguez.  

He’s the one who got arrested. On Aug. 12, something bad happened to Maria. The police found out and talked to Garcia-Rodriguez that day. They even took some DNA samples.  

But at first, they weren’t really looking at him. The police chief, Josh Bruegger, said that. By Friday, they were thinking, “Maybe he’s our guy.” They found him in Shreveport, Louisiana. Now, he’s waiting to be sent back to Texas.

Here’s a heart-breaking part: On that day, Maria’s dad went to work. He and Maria texted back and forth. Once, she told him someone was at the door. He said, “Don’t open it.” Maria said she’d stay in bed and not open it. But after that, he didn’t hear from her anymore. CBS station KHOU shared this sad story.

On the afternoon of Aug. 12, when the father came home, he discovered his daughter and quickly dialed 911. She wasn’t taking any breaths. Tragically, she was in a plastic bag, tucked inside a laundry basket, and hidden under a bed.

The cops found a unique key at the family’s place. Turns out, it fit right into the lock of the apartment where Garcia-Rodriguez stayed. Even though he had roommates, they had their own keys when the police had a chat with them.

Gonzalez’s family gave a heartfelt thanks to the officers. They said, “bringing this cold-blooded murderer into custody,” as per KHOU. 

The family and neighbors feel a bit better now. ” This arrest has brought the family and community some peace. We are extremely thankful that he cannot cause this type of pain to anybody again,” the family mentioned.  

They added, “I ask for those who are in charge to give us justice. May he be burdened with the full weight of the law, for what he has done to my daughter.”
