Sacramento County Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives made an arrest in connection with a burned body that was found near Snodgrass Slough on Thursday morning, January 23, 2014.
On Sunday morning (January 26th), Sheriff’s patrol deputies responded to a residence in response to a missing person report. The reporting person stated that his live-in girlfriend had left the residence on Wednesday (January 22nd) and not returned. The patrol deputy noted the physical similarities of this missing person to the body found on the levee road and contacted Homicide Detectives.
Further investigation from Detectives revealed several inconsistencies between the reporting person’s initial statement and noted additional similarities to the recovered body.
Robert Juan Enriquez, 38, was arrested last night (January 27th) and booked into the Sacramento County Main jail for Domestic Violence and Murder. He currently is being held without bail.
The victim has been tentatively identified pending official identification by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office. Events and circumstances leading to her death are unknown at this time.
Anyone with information about the movement of Enriquez between January 22nd and January 27th is urged to contact Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives at (916)874-5115.
