DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Dallas Police Department has issued a murder warrant for Faustino Valdez, the ex-boyfriend of Marisol Espinosa who went missing one year ago today and who’s body was found in March 2016.

Espinosa is the 34-year-old Dallas mother who was last seen before she was to be leaving to go work at a hair salon in NorthPark Center. 

She never made it there.

Valdez was the last person to have reported seeing her.

Valdez initially participated in searches for Espinosa, but then stopped.

His whereabouts became unknown in early January.

Anyone with information concerning this case or the suspect, can call 911 or Homicide Detective C. Shelton, at 214-283-4900.

This investigation is still active and ongoing.

During the nearly three months her body was missing, Espinosa’s cousin, Wendy Lopez organized weekend searches in the hopes of bringing Espinosa home.

After Espinosa’s body was found, Lopez, visited the remote site. It’s in the general area where some of the searching for Espinosa has taken place.

“I came down here to see if I could find anything that would confirm it for me,” Lopez said Monday.
