A Texas boyfriend is now wanted for the murder of his girlfriend, police say. According to court records, he tracked her for months with a GPS unit before killing her. The Travis County Sheriff’s Office has issued a warrant for Luis Angel Montes for the murder of Camerina Trujillo Perez. Bail has been set for Montes at $1 million.
On January 25, 2022, both Camerina Perez and Luis Montes were reported missing by family members. Detectives learned that the two of them had a dating relationship and were last seen together on January 24, 2022. Statements provided to detectives indicated there was a possibility Camerina could be in danger, as Luis had reportedly made threatening statements about Camerina in the past. A Clear Alert was issued, seeking the public’s help in locating them.
Detectives didn’t rule out any possibility while investigating the couple’s disappearance. As they pursued leads and gathered evidence, a disturbing chain of events began to emerge. Evidence indicates that in the early morning hours of January 25, 2022, Camerina was killed by Luis.
Surveillance video captured Montes and Perez meeting outside a bank. The two got out of their vehicle and Montes began beating her and fled the scene, “With her lifeless body still in the vehicle.”
Police suspect Montez may have dumped the body in the area of Lake Pflugerville.
“This is a horrible outcome, and my heart goes out to Camerina’s friends and family. We are doing everything we can to find Luis Montes and bring justice to her loved ones,” said Sheriff Sally Hernandez.
Anyone with information about the case or the location of Luis Montes is asked to call the TCSO tip line at 512-854-1444 or Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS (8477).
