TX - Maria Teresa Leon, 38, found murdered, San Antonio, 21 Aug 2011
A very touching article on the murder of one troubled woman, from the San Antonio Express-News:
Woman's kin hope for answers in slaying
Police found [Maria Teresa] Leon's body Aug. 24 in the trunk of her maroon 1995 Ford Thunderbird, which had been abandoned near 26th and Ruiz streets. Her death was ruled a homicide.
Investigators said they were called to the West Side neighborhood after residents reported a foul odor coming from the vehicle. Residents complained that they had started calling police about the car days earlier.
Police have not identified a suspect in the case but friends and relatives said they want to know more about the man Leon was last seen with, her ex-boyfriend, Rafael Hernandez.
The night Leon's body was found, police issued an appeal for the public's help in locating Hernandez, 38, in connection with a 2010 domestic violence incident involving Leon.
Leon's friends and relatives recalled Hernandez as a man of two extreme natures — affable, respectable on one side; darker, violent and exceedingly jealous on the other. They said he was someone they had warned her not to trust.
“She had a care for him that was incomprehensible. She had a fear of him that was incomprehensible,” her father said. “She never wished him any harm.”

From April 2015:
Rafael Hernandez was reportedly last seen in San Antonio Aug. 21, 2011. A woman said he asked for a ride to a Greyhound bus terminal so he could catch a ride to Laredo for a job. Police believe he was getting out of town to avoid being charged with murdering his ex-girlfriend.
Hernandez, 41, was arrested in Nuevo Laredo last week. He was handed over to Webb County authorities before being brought back to San Antonio to face charges.
