    Conzuelo 'Nicole' Solorio-Romero (25) missing from Kearns, UT after being abducted by 2 men

    https://kslnewsradio.com/1943287/arr...-kearns-woman/

    Police announced two arrests Tuesday in the disappearance of a missing Kearns woman, saying they now believe she may have been a homicide victim.

    Conzuelo ?Nicole? Solorio-Romero disappeared from her Kearns apartment Saturday, Feb. 6, according to Unified Police, who said she was forcibly removed from her home. Arrest records state Solorio-Romero was taken to a studio apartment in West Valley by two men who were known as ?Chaparro and the Venezuelan.? After speaking with people who were at the apartment at the time of the shooting, police were able to identify ?Chaparro? as Orlando Tobar, 29, and ?The Venezuelan? as Jorge Medina, 21.

    Investigators believe that?s where Solorio-Romero was shot and killed.

    ?We believe that her body was removed from there and taken to a location that we do not know of,? Salt Lake County Sheriff Rosie Rivera said during a news conference announcing the arrests of two men Tuesday.

    Several witnesses spoke to investigators, even though they were reportedly threatened by Tobar. The booking statement says one witness claimed Tobar would kill them if they spoke about the shooting to anyone. Two others say they heard the gunfire shortly after Solorio-Romero was taken inside. Another says he witnessed the shooting, although he couldn?t specify if Tobar or Medina was the gunman.

    Rivera says investigators found blood at the West Valley crime scene, as well as other key pieces of evidence.

    ?A firearm of the same caliber as a bullet recovered from the West Valley City location was later found at the residence where the suspected were located and a search warrant was served,? Rivera says.

    Sadly, they have not found Solorio-Romero, yet. However, they have found the white pick-up with a snowplow that was seen in doorbell video. Rivera hopes people will remember seeing that truck, which could help them track down the body.

    ?Somebody knows something,? Rivera said. ?We?re going to continue to investigate it until we get everybody arrested that had a part in this.?

    Rivera says this case is heartbreaking for them, and for Solorio-Romero?s family.

    ?Nicole?s family, they have been actively involved, as well, trying to locate her,? she says.

    Booking documents do not specify which of the suspects fired on Solorio-Romero, but they cite Tobar as saying Medina gave him a black pistol after the shooting and told him to ?hold on to it.? Medina was quoted as telling investigators that he didn?t know Solorio-Romero, and only recognized her because her story was on the news. He also reportedly told investigators he didn?t see or hear anything suspicious on the day of the shooting.

    Both men were booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on suspicion of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated murder.

    Two Men Killed Missing Woman Conzuelo ‘Nicole’ Solorio-Romero Because She ‘Knew Too Much’: Authorities

    Two men who allegedly killed missing Utah woman Conzuelo “Nicole” Solorio-Romero did it because she “knew too much,” according to charging documents obtained by The Salt Lake Tribune. They had been questioning her about what she told police regarding another individual, who had been taken into federal custody, authorities said.

    Officials previously announced the arrests of Orlando Esiesa Tobar, 29, and Jorge Rafael Medina Reyes, 21, but did not detail the alleged motive. The body of Solorio-Romero, the 25-year-old who went missing from her home in Kearns, Utah, on February 6, has not been discovered.

    Solorio-Romero sent a video that day to a friend, authorities now say, claiming that two men armed with guns were forcing her to leave home. According to charging papers, witnesses also said they saw a woman made to go into a car, and investigators said surveillance video showed Tobar making her get inside. The suspects allegedly took Solorio-Romero to an apartment, where witnesses claimed to see Tobar holding to a knife to her neck.

    Court papers depict the men interrogating Solorio-Romero, with Tobar having Reyes stand behind the victim. Tobar allegedly asked her what she told cops regarding a case which ended with federal authorities taking a “close” associate of his into custody. Authorities say Solorio-Romero denied speaking to cops, but as the documents paraphrased it, Tobar allegedly said she “knew too much” and she was not going to leave the apartment.

    Court papers cited by local broadcaster KUTV provide a glimpse at what the woman knew: Solerio-Romero allegedly told one of the witnesses that “her husband did not commit suicide as the witness believed, but was murdered by these two (Tobar and Medina-Reyes).”

    Tobar allegedly moved his head. Reyes shot Solorio-Romero in the back of hers, authorities said. Authorities have not identified a third individual, described only as “the Mechanic,” whom they claimed helped Tobar and Reyes get rid of the body.

    As previously reported, Reyes allegedly feigned ignorance about the case, saying he was at a home and only knew of Solorio-Romero from the news about her disappearance. Tobar allegedly said she was with him and Reyes, but she joined them willingly. Tobar said he stepped away while the two were arguing, and then he heard a gunshot, according to court papers.

    Now authorities alleged that the men lied and both served as active participants in the murder.
