ALLEN, TX -- He was the man family and friends long-suspected held clues to Christina Morris’ disappearance. Now, with his arrest, it’s safe to say -- Enrique Arochi is a suspect.
But, who is the 24-year-old – charged with kidnapping Christina? We know Enrique lives in Allen with his folks. A picture posted on Twitter shows his car was hauled away by Plano cops Saturday morning.
Crime tape surrounds his family’s home, as cops continue to search his house. “When something like this is that close to you, you see it all the time on the news – but when something is this close to you – it kinda strikes a different chord in you, and you feel for the family,” neighbor Daniel Scott Conrad said.
Enrique went to Allen High School with Christina. He was the person seen with her in the grainy surveillance video a taken at the Shops at Legacy. The parking garage video was the initial clue cops had in the case.
In October, Enrique maintained he knew nothing about Christina’s disappearance. "I wish I walked her to her car, so none of this would've happened. Like I said, we weren't really friends," Arochi said back in October.
Until recently, Enrique worked as a manager at a Sprint store in Wylie. Last month, cops there arrested Enrique and charged him with theft. A former co-worker, who didn’t want to be identified, spoke to NewsFix after Enrique’s arrest.
"He took a phone from the Sprint store and put it on his account when he was not authorized to do that. He completely used a different phone for a couple different days after the disappearance of Christina," the employee explained.
Now, Enrique at is the center of a three-month long investigation, and he could be the missing piece cops need to solve this case.
