They discover in the US the body of a woman who was murdered by her boyfriend 18 years ago

Eric Mora is currently serving an 11-year sentence in state prison after being charged with the murder of his girlfriend, Cynthia ‘Linda’ Alonzo.

Alameda County Authorities, in California (USA), announced this Wednesday through a statement that the body of Cynthia ‘Linda’ Alonzo was found earlier this month in the city of Oakland, in the same state, after remaining missing for 18 years.

Alonzo, who was 48 years old at the time of her disappearance, was last seen in November 2004 in the company of her boyfriend, Eric Mora, in the city of West Oakland, where both boarded a vehicle to the house of the victim’s mother, located in San Francisco, to celebrate Thanksgiving Day, local media collect.

“After nearly 18 years of waiting, Linda Alonzo’s family can finally find some peace knowing their loved one can finally rest,” said Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley.

The body was not where he said

According to the statement, it was on May 4 that the woman’s body was found Missing: She was near the US Army Base in Oakland, wrapped in tarps and buried shallow. An autopsy was performed on the 12th and it was confirmed that the remains belonged to ‘Linda’ Alonzo.

The authorities had declared Eric Mora as the main suspect in the disappearance of his girlfriend. In 2007, after several years of investigation, murder charges were brought against him. He was subsequently tried for second-degree murder and sentenced in March 2012 to between 15 years and life in prison.

In March 2016, the conviction was overturned on appeal , because a trial judge had improperly barred him from trying to present evidence that someone else may have killed Alonzo. However, in October of that same year, Mora confessed to having murdered her, and even provided details about where the remains of the deceased were.

After an exhaustive search, which involved various police units, the body of the victim was not found. In June 2017, the defendant was sentenced again to 11 years in state prison.

“The District Attorney’s Office fought hard for justice on behalf of Linda’s family,” O’Malley said. Now, he said, they are all “relieved to have finally found her so the family can have a proper burial,” since for several years “Eric Mora denied killing Linda, until he confessed in 2016.”
