George De La Cruz, the estranged husband of missing Julie Ann Gonzalez, 21, has been arrested and indicted for murder.
Gonzalez was last seen on March 26, 2010. Her car was found in a Walgreens parking lot, and she had plans to pick up her child from De La Cruz’s home that day.
APD executed a search warrant at De La Cruz's home in May of 2012, in which detectives asked for numerous items they believed would be found at the residence.
Police initially believed Gonzalez’s disappearance was voluntary, but her family led the charge to have the incident more thoroughly investigated.
The family established a website, JulieAnnGonzalez.com, and purchased billboard space, pleading for anyone with information to come forward. Her mother, Sandra Soto, hosted fundraising events and sold homemade tamales to offset the costs.
De La Cruz is being held in Travis County Jail on $500,000 bond.
