N.S.: The loving couple, some time before the husband apparently helped the wife--who was unaware of her need for such help--bludgeon herself to death.

SANTA ANA – The body of a 21-year-old Santa Ana woman was discovered in a truck in the downtown area of Tijuana, Mexico, authorities said Wednesday.

Rosa Alicia Rosales Soto was found early Tuesday in the back seat of a green truck parked on H Street, between Second and Third streets, according to a news release from Mexican authorities. Rosales exhibited signs of trauma to the head.

Her estranged husband, Daniel Rangel Lozano, 24, of Santa Ana, turned himself in to Mexican authorities on Tuesday,

Lozano told authorities he lived with his wife in Santa Ana, but they decided to go to Tijuana where he said they went to take their lives, according to El Mexicano newspaper.

On Friday night, Santa Ana police received a call from Rosales’ aunt in Chicago, who said she was concerned about her niece who was living in Santa Ana, Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said.

Rosales apparently called her aunt and said her husband was going to kill her and then hung up, Bertagna said.

Officers went to the woman’s home in the 2700 block of South Pacific Avenue, but residents told police the woman and her husband moved out two weeks ago, Bertagna said.

The following day, Rosales’ aunt called her brother in San Jose, who called police there and filed a missing persons report. On Monday, San Jose detectives got in touch with Santa Ana police and said the couple had two children – a 6-year-old girl and a 4-year-old boy - and were involved in a custody dispute, Bertagna said. [So, she had her first child when she was only 15 or 16, and her second child two years later? Yeah, that sounds like the typical behavior of a “Santa Ana” woman. These Santa Ana folks get around, too—Santa Ana, San Jose, Chicago, Mexico. And they are quite competent at dealing with the authorities…. when they want to.]

“There may have been domestic violence involved,” Bertagna said. [N.S.: Ya think?!]

On Monday, Lozano’s parents went to the police department [which police department?]and said their son left his two children with them and had not returned, Bertagna said.

“We think something is wrong,” Lozano’s parents told police. “We have not heard from him or their mother.”

Santa Ana detectives reviewed video from the U.S.-Mexico crossing and spotted the truck crossing into Tijuana. They contacted Mexican authorities and asked them for help locating the truck.

Homicide detectives are trying to determine whether Rosales was kidnapped and killed here and then transported to Tijuana or if she was kidnapped, driven to Tijuana and killed there, Bertagna said.

“We are investigating to find out what crimes happened here,” he said.

Mexican authorities are conducting their own investigation. [Don’t hold your breath!]

Santa Ana detectives are asking the couple’s friends, relatives and coworkers to call them with information about where the couple was living and when they were last seen. Detectives can be reached at 714-245-8390.
