The arrest last week of Jeffrey Devorah, 43, in San Antonio may solve a four-year mystery about what happened to Tiffany Garza.
Garza, 37, was reported missing by her mother in late April 2019. Investigators obtained audio three months later indicating she was killed in a subdivision.
But a Facebook post Wednesday by Atascosa County Sheriff David Soward says “significant blood evidence” also was found at the home in front of the burn pit.
A blood sample from the pit, compared with Garza's mother and child, found a DNA match. Another blood sample matched Devorah.
Authorities have not revealed how they think Garza died. But they believe she was killed around Monday, April 1, 2019.
Her mother, Lilly Morua, told KENS-TV that Garza was last seen alive at a Dollar General store.
“I can’t sleep. I’ve just been worried sick to my stomach,” Morua said.
