Cynthia “Linda” Alonzo, a native of Oakland, California, is said to have been killed on Thanksgiving Day in the year 2004 by her lover, according to the prosecution’s case.
The remains of a California woman who had been reported missing nearly 18 years ago were found in a shallow grave earlier this month, according to an announcement made by prosecutors on Wednesday.
“Linda” Alonzo, who was 48 years old and a resident of Oakland at the time of her disappearance, went missing on Thanksgiving Day in 2004. In a press release issued on Wednesday, the District Attorney for Alameda County, Nancy E. O’Malley, stated that the last time she and her boyfriend, Eric Mora, were seen together, they were getting into a car in West Oakland to drive to San Francisco to spend the holiday with her mother.
It didn’t take the authorities very long to make the connection between Mora and the girl’s disappearance.
Authorities claim that even though Alonzo’s body has never been found, they have been able to piece together the events leading up to her disappearance over two years.
