Missing Pregnant Teen and Boyfriend Found Dead in Car on Christmas Eve


A pregnant Texas teen who had been missing for four days was found dead on Tuesday, according to local news reports.

Savanah Nicole Soto, 18, and her boyfriend were found dead “in the Medical Center area of San Antonio” on Tuesday, according to KYTX.

Soto was last seen at her apartment complex on Friday, a day before she was to be induced at the hospital, according to KHOU.

During a news conference Tuesday evening, San Antonio police described the crime scene as “perplexing” and said detectives are investigating a “possible murder.”

“Because of the complexity of the crime scene, we can’t say for sure what we have,” Chief William McManus told reporters.

McManus said he couldn’t tell whether anybody discovered in the car was pregnant and would leave that up to the medical examiner.

Police suspect the pair was in the car for “three or four days.”

A nearby tenant compared Soto’s apartment complex to “Hotel California,” stating, “Everything happens here.”

“It’s evil here,” a resident identified only as Nataly told The Messenger. “This is going to sound cold, but this doesn’t surprise me.” She claimed to have never seen Soto.

Gloria Cordova, Soto’s mother, told The Messenger on Tuesday morning that her family had driven to the scene of a neighboring hostage situation in case Soto was involved.

Officers responded to a domestic violence complaint at 1:30 p.m. local time, according to News 4, although it’s unclear if the two events are linked.

Cordova previously told KHOU that her daughter was looking forward to becoming a mother.

She said that neither Soto nor her boyfriend had returned her calls.

“We don’t even know what happened,” she stated, according to KHOU. “They said it could be anything.”

“We got to the hospital,” Cordova recalled of her daughter’s induced labor appointment. “They said she wasn’t there.”

Cordova told KENS that she went to her daughter’s apartment after she failed to show up at the hospital.

“I went by there and knocked and knocked and knocked, and she wasn’t answering,” Cordova said.

Soto’s family and friends have been looking for Soto.

“My daughter is missing; she was supposed to be induced at 6:30 p.m. but never arrived.” If you see her, please contact me and let me know where you spotted her. “I’m concerned for her safety because she is with her boyfriend, who is a jerk,” Cordova said on Facebook.

“Prayer for my baby girl,” she continued.
