    They don't know if Moran is the same man who left the club with Martinez.

    The license plate was stolen on the car Moran is driving.

    Police: Foul play suspected in woman's disappearance

    Police now suspect foul play in the disappearance of Sara Martinez, who was last seen March 9 at Club Guadalajara.

    Detectives recovered a car driven by Jose Moran — a man they'd fingered as involved in or knowledgeable about Martinez's disappearance — abandoned Tuesday afternoon near Nolensville Pike. Evidence from the car, a Toyota Corolla, suggests a violent crime likely took place, police said.

    Sara Martinez (20) - Nashville TN, 2009


    Sara Martinez

    Endangered Missing from Nashville, Tennessee since March 9, 2009

    Age: 20 -- Height: 4'8" -- Weight: 100 lbs -- Hair Color: Black -- Eye Color: Brown


    Sara was last seen leaving a club in Nashville, Tennessee with a man at 5:00 pm on March 9, 2009. She spoke to a friend by phone six days later on March 15. The friend became concerned and called police. Sara has never been heard from again.

    Authorities believe Jose Moran was with Sara when she was on the phone, but they aren't sure if he is the same man she left the club with. Moran's vehicle was found abandoned three weeks after Sara's disappearance was reported. Evidence inside it suggested a violent crime had occurred there. There was a significant amount of Sara's blood in the front passenger seat.

    Investigators believe Moran killed Sara. They have issued a warrant for his arrest. He may have fled to Honduras.

    DNA testing has confirmed that human remains discovered in the Avalon subdivision of Franklin last week are those of Sara Martinez, who was murdered in Nashville more than five years ago...

    Nashville police identified a suspected killer and issued an arrest warrant in August 2009. That man, Jose Morano, 32, of Honduras, initially fled back to his native country — leaving his belongings behind — authorities said.

    But he was arrested on July 11, 2011, in Clinton, N.C., and later charged with Martinez’s killing. He pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and was deported.
