A suspect was apprehended in Texas in connection to the murder of a colleague whose body was found alongside the interstate in Indiana, authorities said.
A coroner determined Garcia’s manner of death was homicide.
An investigation revealed the victim’s employer, a national trucking company based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, had filed a missing person report on Garcia after his truck was located.
Detectives identified Garcia’s co-driving partner, Miguel Ibarguren, 44, of Miami, a suspect in the case and a judge issued a warrant for his arrest, police said.
On March 15, authorities took Ibarguren into custody in Arlington, Texas.
He faces a murder charge and was expected to be extradited to Indiana.
