Police in Dallas have arrested a man they believe murdered three women whose bodies were discovered in the city over the course of three months.
The Dallas Police Department has charged Oscar Sanchez Garcia, 25, with two counts of murder in connection with the deaths of Kimberly Robinson, 60, and an unidentified woman. He is also the prime suspect in the slaying of Cherish Gibson, who was 25 years old.
Mr. Sanchez Garcia is being detained at the Dallas County Jail on a $4 million surety. The corpse of Robinson was discovered on April 22 in a grassy area beneath a SART railway viaduct in the city. The body of Gibson was discovered on June 24 on the same block near the DART station. Saturday, a third victim was discovered less than five miles from where the first two were discovered.
A copy of an arrest warrant affidavit obtained by WFAA, police linked the suspect to the murders through the use of phone records, video, and data from a license plate reader, which placed the suspect’s vehicle and phone in the areas where all three victims were last seen alive and where their bodies were discovered.
Both Robinson and Gibson, who are believed to have been sex workers, were discovered partially naked with puncture wounds.
Distinctive Blue Ford Truck Tied to Crime Scenes: Investigators Identify Suspect
Investigators report that a blue Ford Truck with “distinctive stickers on the rear windshield” was seen at all crime scenes and was registered to the suspect, who resided close to where the bodies of Gibson and Robinson were discovered.
Christina Martinez told the news station that she and Mr. Sanchez Garcia’s family have lived in the same triplex for two years.”He’s a laid-back, chill guy,” she said. “He enjoys playing with children. Therefore, we were in disbelief.” Ms. Martinex further stated that the suspect’s wife was in “shock” after his detention.
“She is shocked. And the son is merely seeking his father. She lacks ideas for what to say to him. He does not resemble the type of person who would do such a thing.”
It is not the suspect’s first encounter with city police.
WFAA reported that the suspect was arrested in March for allegedly striking his wife twice in the face after she used his credit card to purchase diapers without his permission.
Janetria Oliver, Robinson’s daughter, expresses gratitude for the arrest made in the case. Ms. Oliver stated, “My mother did not deserve that, and I’m so glad he’s off the streets where he can’t hurt anyone else.”
“Additionally, I have prayed for the other affected families.. No one deserves to have their life cut short in such a manner, and we pray that justice is served.”
