It is an overwhelming tragedy for one family. Just one day after a woman died in a horrific car accident along with four other people, her sister was allegedly murdered by her ex-boyfriend.
The family knew something was wrong when 21-year-old Karen Garcia didn’t show up to her sister Jessica’s vigil. According to KCRA, Garcia’s body was found in a Woodland, California parking lot. Police have called her death a homicide.
She was last seen on the morning of January 8, after telling a friend she was going to go to a mall to try to clear her head after her sister’s tragic accident. Jessica Garcia and four friends died after they were struck by a wrong-way driver.
Nearly a week later, on Sunday, Karen’s body was found inside a car parked by the department store Marshall’s.
Police subsequently accused Salvador Garcia, Jr., Karen’s ex-boyfriend and father of their 2-year-old daughter,
