    That was an unexpected surprise as was his own mother's statements against him.

    Glad this perp is behind bars.

    It's sad to read that a few different turns could have possibly prevented this. If only the restraining order would have worked, if only he was ordered to serve his full sentence for violating that order, if only she had stayed away after he got out of jail, if only his mother would have alerted someone to his plan, if only we lived in a perfect world.

    Rest peacefully beautiful.

    I am so sorry that the system and people did not work harder to protect Cristina from this outcome. The only solace in this is that her family does not have to wonder for years on end where he left her and she can come home to rest in peace.
    RIP beauty!

    Very bizarre, sick, and twisted story. Worst then any horror movie.

    Time after time we all hear about these tragic stories. It seems as though 95% of them boil down to the victim choosing to associate with the wrong person. One bad decision can end it all. [emoji17]

    This is such a tragic and twisted case. I have so many questions, I don't even know where to begin. RIP to her beautiful soul.

    An arrest has been noted in the thread title but we won't move to located until/unless there is positive identification.

    Above is a snip of the case... as I cannot copy/paste the entire item here due to technical issues.


    http://pa.courts.state.mn.us/CaseDetail.aspx?CaseID=1625178467

    I believe this is his court file for violation of OFP against Cristina. He was just sentenced on this Dec 28, 2017. Too bad the judge didn't make him serve the entire 90 day sentence on this. 80 days were stayed for 2 yrs. Heartbreaking! There is a warrant notification on this court file, also. I am not finding a state criminal complaint yet for her murder. It probably won't be registered until after his first court appearance. I will check and see if I can find anything in Hennepin County (the county Cristina resided).

    Some highlights:

    Officers also knew victim had met JOSEPH PORTER, hereafter defendant, on-line and defendant had moved up from Arkansas and began living with victim on or about October 2017. Thereafter, the above-referenced service calls ensued involving verbal disputes, allegations of domestic assault, interference with a 911 call, and violations of domestic abuse no contact orders.
    ...

    The second (LE) contact was on January 4, 2018 at approximately 8:29 p.m. in Greene County, Missouri. A Missouri State Trooper stopped defendant's vehicle for expired registration and had contact with defendant. Defendant was alone in the vehicle. The trooper noted the back seat contained large suitcases and a brand new pick axe and shovel. Defendant explained he was "moving back to Arkansas from Minnesota" and "needed the tools for his job."
    The third contact was on January 5, 2018 at 12:59 a.m. in Evening Shade, Arkansas. An officer stopped defendant's vehicle and had contact with defendant. Defendant was alone in the vehicle. The large suitcases and tools were present in the back seat.
    ...

    Defendant acknowledged (his relationship with Cristina) was punctuated with frequent discord. Defendant admitted that on January 4, 2018, he was at victim's residence and they argued. Defendant admitted he punched victim several times, causing her bodily harm. Defendant admitted he placed victim into a choke hold and rendered her unconscious. Upon realizing victim had died, defendant admitted he placed her body inside a large suitcase and began driving.

    I hope to see more charges - what about theft and abuse of a corpse?
