    Navaro's body was found floating in a Texas lake just before noon last Wednesday, her body wrapped in a ten and weighted down by a paint can, the local Sheriff's Office said.

    I once had a home in Lago Vista overlooking Lake Travis and that park. It's not hard to imagine someone committing a crime like this there...it's very quiet/remote and nobody is there at night. So I'm wondering, who found her and how? She was weighed down and was never reported missing. Hmmm...recreational divers?

    So glad they pieced this together before he got across the border. WTG Canadian border patrol!

    Yikes!

    I live on the Canadian side of the Pembina border crossing. We are a far cry from Texas.

    I'd missed that...thanks.

    By happenstance he wasn't on duty when his coworkers found her. Then they must have told him about it and he bolted. Here's more about the story including a photo of the beautiful wife. So sad.

    Wow. Thanks for this info. I KNEW something had happened when I went to Paleface Grocery right on Pace Bend Rd. the evening they discovered her body, but on the local news I watched that night they didn't mention this. :-(

    The evening they found her, I heard sirens like I've never heard before that afternoon while out with my horse/mule/donkeys. Then when I ran down the hill to get some groceries and dog food, I saw a KEYE-TV truck going down toward the park as I was leaving the gas station. That's SO unusual for this area (especially the combo of multiple sirens and a TV truck) that it really drew my attention.

    So sad. So very sad. I'm horrified to find out this is what that was all about, living in this area. I'll keep an eye on this case now, in case there's anything I can do, even if just for moral support for her family. Wow.

    This has been the week for this kind of things for me. Since moving from the L.A. (CA) area, I've been so blissfully apart from crime and tragedy. Earlier this week I saw that the man that died in front of his 6 year old boy when he fell out of the stands while going after a baseball at a Rangers game was from Brownwood, where my ex and I had our ranch. I loved living in Brownwood. I loved the people there. That news made me very sad.

    Now this...

    Added to the horrific travesty of justice in the CA trial....sad, sad weeks lately.

    AUSTIN (KXAN) - The alleged suspect in the murder of Veronica Navarro, 22, is in the Travis County jail tonight.

    The Travis County Sheriff's Office said Joe Carr, 27, was extradited back to Travis County on Wednesday after being arrested in North Dakota almost two weeks ago - he was detained when he attempted to cross the Canadian border.

    Navarro’s body was found floating in Lake Travis near the East shoreline of Pace Bend Park on July 6, 2011.

    If he isnt the dumbest. Im not sure how or why he thought that he was going to get away with this. This is Texas not Orlando Florida. Huntsville here he comes.

    Looks like he's only charged with tampering with evidence for now, while they build their case. But it's a pretty obvious conclusion he did this. But why??? Only 22 and so much life left to live...

    From February 2014:

    http://www.statesman.com/news/news/c...ison-fo/ndMKf/

    Judge Cliff Brown on Wednesday sentenced former firefighter Joe Carr to 60 years in prison for murder and 20 years for tampering with evidence, to run concurrently.

    It took jurors less than an hour Tuesday before finding Carr, 29, guilty of murder and tampering with evidence in the June 2011 death of 22-year-old Veronica Navarro.
