Key evidence collected at the scene, including Soto’s cell phone, led to the arrest. With the help of the SAPD technology team and the United States Secret Service, they were able to obtain enough information to find a possible location of the suspect’s vehicle seen in surveillance video camera footage released last week.

That information was then provided to their detectives, who were able to locate the vehicle and, upon further surveillance of the vehicle, were able to locate the suspects’ home, according to SAPD.

Moscoso went on to say that they believe it was a narcotics deal gone bad.

It’s been almost two weeks since Savannah was reported missing. On December 26, Savanah Soto, 18, was found dead along with her boyfriend, Matthew Guerra, 22, inside the gray Kia Optima in the parking lot of Colinas at Medical Apartments on the Northwest Side.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner confirmed that Soto and her boyfriend, Matthew Guerra, died from a gunshot wound to the head and their deaths were determined to be homicides.
