San Antonio Police Update Brutal Murders of Missing Teen & Boyfriend


SAN ANTONIO, TX - The San Antonio Police Department have released more information regarding the discovery of 18-year-old Savanah Soto and her boyfriend, 22-year-old Matthew Guerra, who were found deceased in a car on Monday. 

The news came after a search following Soto's disappearance, prompting a CLEAR Alert (missing adult) that was issued on Monday afternoon.

SAPD are investigating the case as a capital murder.

At 4 p.m. on Tuesday, San Antonio PD was called to assist Leon Valley PD at 5900 block of Danny Kaye. 

Families of both victims were at the location and told police that they had received information that the missing gray Kia Optima, recognized as Guerra’s vehicle, was at the above address. 

When police arrived, they discovered the bodies of Soto and Guerra.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said that it appeared that the vehicle had been at the location for several days.

The medical examiner determined Guerra died of a gunshot wound to the head, but the manner of his death is still pending. 

“The second deceased victim has not yet been identified by the medical examiner,” McManus said. “However, I think we can be confident that that second victim was Savannah.”

SAPD also released a video which shows two people of interest in the capitol murder and a dark colored pickup truck.
