    TX TX - Zuzu Renee Verk, 22, Alpine, 12 Oct 2016 Media, Maps & Timeline NO DISCUSSION

    Warrants: Phone calls, borrowed truck could be key in Zuzu Verk case
    Todd Unger, WFAA October 26, 2016

    ALPINE, Texas -- The boyfriend of missing 21-year-old Zuzu Verk has officially been deemed a suspect in her disappearance by local authorities, and new documents obtained by News 8 may provide an explanation as to why.

    In search warrants obtained exclusively by WFAA, authorities state that the boyfriend, Robert Fabian, called his friend Chris Estrada twice during the early morning hours of Verk’s disappearance on October 12. The warrant also indicates they communicated using the social media app Snapchat around that same time.

    A separate warrant pertaining to a pick-up truck indicates that Fabian borrowed the F-150 during those same early morning hours on that Wednesday.



    None of the revelations come as a surprise to John Franco, who lives directly below Fabian in an apartment complex across from Sul Ross State University.

    "That night, we heard arguing," said Franco. "I can hear him pacing back and forth, in the kitchen, living room, all around, all around.”

    According to the Alpine Police Department, interviews they have conducted in the two weeks since Zuzu vanished have led them to naming Robert Fabian a suspect in the case. Several members of Fabian's family are also now being called persons of interest.

    A friend of Fabian, Chris Estrada, is also still considered a person of interest, authorities said. Estrada owns a white 2016 Ford Mustang that authorities took into custody over the weekend. In a posting to Facebook, that has since been removed, Estrada denied having any knowledge of what may have happened to Zuzu.

    Search warrants piece together Zuzu Verk investigation


    Search warrants obtained by CBS 7 reveal details which led police to the seizure of vehicles owned by friends and family of now-suspect Robert Fabian, the missing woman’s boyfriend.

    Those warrants reveal Robert Fabian first reported his girlfriend missing on Friday, October 14th at 1:00 p.m. However, he told police that his girlfriend had been missing since the early morning hours Wednesday.
    Fabian told police he had last seen and spoken to Verk at his home at around three or four in the morning Wednesday, October 12th.

    They also reveal two phone calls and Snapchats which may prove key to the investigation. Police say Robert Fabian made two phone calls to his friend Chris Estrada at around 3:15 am on October 12th. He later contacted Estrada on Snapchat.

    Estrada recently took part in a polygraph test by police but was not cleared as a person of interest, according to Chief of Police Russell Scown.

    Enter the 2016 White Ford Mustang taken into custody and searched by police – warrants say it belongs to Estrada.

    Search warrants allege Fabian and Estrada used the Mustang to “conceal” property and “physical evidence” to show that Fabian has knowledge of Verk’s disappearance. Authorities asked for DNA, hair, blood or other evidence found in the vehicle.
