In a tragic turn of events, the bodies of a young couple were discovered in a car at an apartment complex on Tuesday. The female victim, 18-year-old Savanah Soto, was heavily pregnant and past her due date. Her boyfriend, Matthew Guerra, was also found deceased in the vehicle. The circumstances leading to their deaths remain uncertain, prompting law enforcement to treat the case as a potential homicide.
Soto was reported missing from her residence in Leon Valley last Friday, triggering a statewide CLEAR Alert by the Texas Department of Public Safety. The alert was issued due to concerns over her missed medical appointment and the advanced stage of her pregnancy. The search ended in tragedy when Soto and Guerra’s lifeless bodies were found in the Colinas at Medical Apartments in San Antonio.
San Antonio Police Chief William McManus addressed the media in a press conference, confirming the discovery of two bodies in the car. While he stated that the police “believe” the bodies to be those of Soto and Guerra, he did not officially confirm their identities. The crime scene has been characterized as “complex” and “perplexing,” with detectives currently investigating the case.
The details surrounding the deaths of Soto and Guerra remain largely unknown. McManus refrained from commenting on whether a firearm was found in the vehicle, indicating that further examination by the medical examiner is necessary.
The shocking news has deeply affected the community, with friends and family grieving the loss of the young couple. As law enforcement continues to piece together the events leading to this tragic incident, the community is left dealing with the sorrow and seeking answers.
