A 19-year-old man from Texas is facing homicide charges after he admitted to killing his pregnant sister and dumping her body.
Viridiana Arevalo, 23, was eight months pregnant and reported missing by her boyfriend on December 17, 2019. It was believed that she was suicidal because of a note the family found that stated she wanted to take her own life. However, after her body was discovered by a group of neighbors in an alley behind their homes on Sunday morning, police became suspicious of foul play.
Thanks to the help of the community who gave police their home surveillance and doorbell camera footage, police were able to figure out a timeline. Then Arevalos younger brother Eduardo confessed to police that on December 16th, he had strangled her while she sat on the couch.
As the week went on, Eduardo stated that he wanted his family to know where Viri was at so he went and picked up her body and brought her back Sunday morning in the early morning hours and dumped her body in the alleyway, Sgt. Aaron Woodard from The Colony Police Department explained. Eduardo then told detectives that his sister had become an embarrassment to their family and that it would be better off that she wasnt here. He admitted that he wrote the suicide note and attempted to make it look as though she had killed herself.
Arevalo had four brothers, and her family said she was excited to be a mother, especially because she was expecting a baby girl.

It takes a piece of me that I cant get back, from my sister, my little brother as well. To see him like this, I would never imagine him being in a mugshot, in jail, the victim and suspects brother, Diego Arevalo, said.
Eduardo is being held on a $1 million-plus bond at The Colony Jail facing charges of capital murder and tampering with evidence.
Murder is the second leading cause of death among pregnant women after car accidents. In fact, 20 percent of women who die during pregnancy are victims of murder.

Yep he won’t farewell in the joint.
Wait'll he finds out about the embarrassing and painful sex that he's gonna have...
it would be better off that she wasnt here. ..
This is VERY unusual in this day and age.
It used to be a big reason abortion supporters gave as a need for it...the social non acceptance of a pregnant unmarried woman.
Those days are long gone.
Unless your muslim..or a COMPLETE PSYCHOPATH like this guy.
This is Texas. Isn’t he facing two homicide charges?!
At least he’s man engough to admit it. Most would plead not guilty...
Really? “man enough”? bad choice of cliches. how about worthless twisted piece of sh*t ?
I sure hope he has a rough time in jail and is shown to be the little princess he never imagined himself to be.
For what it's worth, the CDC figure is much lower.
Hes a bigger embarrassment to the family than she ever would have been.
Sounds like something a muzzie would do.
do you have a link?
I would have thought eclampsia would have been a bigger factor
Yeah, exactly. This guy must be, and certainly looks like he is, a complete nut job. May this poor woman and her child Rest In Peace.
Wow. How many seriously low-IQ people are in this country? He looks like an ape still in the tree! And that’s an insult to apes.
That’s why prison is such a terrifying thing.
I think there are tough men who could hold their own.
Then there’s Crazy men!
And there’s a lot of them in prison.
Crazy trumps tough every time!
Sounds like something a muzzie would do.
He would get off a lot easier if he claimed to be muzzle and said it was an honor killing. A liberal court would let him off with a slap on the wrist.
A difference without a distinction.
The IQ of the average Mexican is ten points below the IQ of the average American.
I know, I am a horrible racist person for repeating a statistic.
