Missing CA woman, whose sister was killed in wrong-way crash, found dead in car; ex-boyfriend sought

The body of a missing California woman -- whose sister was killed in an unrelated wrong-way crash a week before -- was found in a car, authorities said on Sunday, as they hunted for her ex-boyfriend in connection with her death.

The body of Karen Garcia, 21, was found in her car parked in a lot outside a Marshalls store in Woodland around 3:45 p.m. Sunday, FOX40 reported. She was first reported missing on Jan. 9, two days after her 19-year-old sister Jessica was killed in a wrong-way crash. Four other people, all 25 years old and under, were pronounced dead.

Garcia initially left her home to go shopping. She then texted her family on Jan. 8 to tell them she was in Roseville and heading to Vacaville, but then never returned.

Garcia's ex-boyfriend, Salvador Garcia Jr., was named a suspect in the 21-year-old's death after investigators found "evidence of a homicide" inside her apartment, Colusa Police Department said on Monday.
