Paso Robles kidnapping suspect and teen in custody
August 4, 2012
The Paso Robles man suspected of kidnapping and his 16-year-old victim Eunice Serrato turned themselves in to law enforcement at the United States border in San Diego on Saturday morning.
Monterey County Sheriff’s department investigators are traveling to San Diego to transport Serrato and her boyfriend Juan Manuel Salazar, 19, back to Monterey County.
Deputies suspect Salazar of shooting and killing two men at a San Ardo residence on July 28 before kidnapping Serrato. Serrato’s parents discovered the bodies of Hector Reyes, 33, and Daniel Fraga, 35, and that their daughter was missing when they arrived home shortly after 10 p.m.
On Friday, deputies arrested Maria Aviles-Rodriguez, 36, of Paso Robles in connection with the kidnapping. Deputies booked Aviles-Rodriguez into Monterey County Jail on charges of kidnapping, child stealing, child endangerment, accessory after the fact, conspiracy to commit a crime and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Her bail was set at $750,000.
The investigation is ongoing and more arrests are expected.
