I am calling a detective tomorrow to touch base and hopefully get them to bring him in for more questioning. The funny thing is that his own family is starting to leak out information, that supposedly they have know all along. The reason for the cover up I was told was because his father was a preacher, and his brother whom he supposedly made carry the body to be disposed of was only 11 at the time. But the guilt is there, I just know that we will find her soon. I have gotten a lot of support from agencies and will hopefully be able to end this for the family. I wont give up till Sophia is found and he is behind bars serving the sentence he so deserves.

    I did check the rule outs in the stickys on that forum and she was not listed there.

The reason for my call to her was because I have been helping a friend find answers the disappearance of her daughter, who went missing 33 years ago. Back in 1979 Sophia Moreno went missing and hasn't been heard of or seen since. The family Does suspect foul play and has heard recent stories that she may have been murdered and taken to Houston to be dumped some wheres. the family has called Houston forensic to have a trace ran to see if there is a possible match. If any one out there knows anything. please call some one.

    She was married (to an abusive man no less) at 16? How sad.

    I hope she just got away from that situation and stayed away, making a new life for herself. I doubt it though- probably something was more nefarious happened. She looks SO much like the composite for Princess Blue but wouldn't the years between her going missing and Princess Blue being found make that unlikely? Do we know Princess Blue's date of death? (Sorry- not as up to date on the UID forum as many here are).

    I don't know a lot about Princess Blue. I'll see if I can stir up some regulars from that forum.

    UPDATE: It was previously ruled that Princess Blue was white/hispanic but when a recent forensic workup was done they determined that Princess Blue was Caucasian, with possible mixed ethnic heritage (it is likely one parent or one grandparent was African-American)

    Princess Blue was found in 1990 and they believe she had not been there more than 2 years. http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/mpch/Un...sp?id=U0310014

    That rules out Sophia Felecita as Princess Blue then.

    Sophia Felecita's story is so sad to me - married so young to an abusive man and then disappears into thin air. Sad. I hope she is found.

    I'm not having much luck finding more info about Sophia but I did find these articles:

    http://www.theeagle.com/article/2012...9800/1003/BC01
    http://www.kbtx.com/home/headlines/92554654.html

    Sounds like the husband is the only suspect. Do we know any more about him?

    I scanned through some UIDs earlier but I'm not great at it especially when there's no sketch available.

    What else can we do?

    I let jeanettem know that Sophia was a cold case this week and didn't hear back. Hopefully she'll check back with us soon with an update and some ideas on how we can help.
