    From what I heard on the news about this, the cab dropped her off about a block from her home and she hasn't been seen since.

    Found deceased

    6 Oct 09

    The suspect in the disappearance and murder of a woman whose remains were found in a city storm sewer is dead.

    WBAL TV is reporting that Victor Cruz died in custody.

    Cruz hanged himself in his central booking holding cell according to authorities.

    Cruz had been charged after a utility worker found the body of Elda Vasquez under a manhole cover on Benninghaus Road late last week.

    She had been missing more than a year. Cruz was found unconscious in the cell overnight and declared dead at the hospital.

    Police said Cruz, an undocumented alien from Mexico, had confessed to the killing.

    Shoes for crews look to be shoes made for workers in the industries of food service, healthcare, hotels, factory, schools and supermarkets. I haven't been able to figure out "chef authority" yet.

    I think it is already solved.
    I googled it and found the following as a resolved case on Charley Project.

    Elda Ardorno Vasquez
    Vasquez, 28, disappeared from Columbia, Maryland on January 10, 2008. In October 2009, her body was found by telephone workers under a manhole cover, at the bottom of an underground cable vault, only fifteen yards from her estranged boyfriend's former home. The boyfriend, Victor Hernandez Cruz, was arrested for murder and confessed to strangling Vasquez. He committed suicide in jail the following day.

    Yes, weird.
    Then I realized I didn't really know what a "cable vault" was and googled the phrase "body found inside a cable vault."

    One of the first articles I found was the Baltimore Sun article describing the discovery of the body.

    A few articles down from that was the Charley Project entry.

    More googling just now reveals that the body was identified just a day or two after it was found!
