TX - Elizabeth Pule Arellano, 28, kidnapped & drowned, Fort Worth, 16 April 2016
After a night out with colleagues, Elizabeth Pule Arellano called a co-worker to let her know she’d arrived safely at her parents’ north Fort Worth house.
Then the 28-year-old mother of four vanished.
When her mother awoke later that morning, she found her daughter’s car nearby, with the keys still in the ignition. Her daughter’s purse and cellphone were inside.
The mother called police that afternoon to report her daughter missing — unaware that her body had already been found.
Fishermen on a Lake Worth dock had called 911 at 3:20 a.m. on April 16 — some 10 hours before Elizabeth Arellano was reported missing — after seeing what appeared to be a person falling from the Loop 820 bridge.
“One witness described hearing what sounded like screams on the way down,” homicide Detective J. Cedillo noted in court documents.
When the fire department’s swift-water rescue team pulled the woman’s body from the water, she had a rope tied around her neck that was attached to a piece of concrete that still encased part of a wooden fence post.
On Tuesday, 10 days after her disappearance and death, police arrested the woman’s estranged husband, Rodolfo “Rudy” Arellano, on a capital murder warrant.
He is accused of kidnapping his estranged wife, then throwing her into Lake Worth and causing her to drown.

Good God - her ex kidnaps her, wraps rope & concrete around her neck & throws her off a bridge to drown. This is sickening. Glad he's been caught.
