Jalia Marrero Missing New York Teen
Jalia Marrero, Missing New York Teen Who Witnessed Father’s Murder Found Dead, who will witness her father being shot to death in early May, was found buried in a shallow grave in Buffalo.
The family of a missing New York teen who was found dead in a shallow grave believes she was murdered by the same person who killed the girl’s father just days before she went missing.
The Buffalo Police Department announced last month that the body of 18-year-old Galia Marrero was found in Buffalo on June 6 by investigators assigned to the homicide unit.
The teen was last seen on May 8 or 9 within city limits.
Although her identity has been confirmed by the Erie County Medical Examiner’s office, the cause of death has yet to be determined.
The body of eighteen-year-old Galia Marrero was discovered by homicide investigators on June 6, according to a statement on the Buffalo Police Department’s Facebook page.
Marrero reportedly witnessed her father, 39-year-old Luis Marrero, being shot dead in an apartment on May 4, and her family lost contact with her shortly after, according to the Buffalo News.
Family members confirm that both Louis and Galia were killed by the same person, although officials have yet to confirm or deny this.
When Buffalo police announced Galia’s disappearance, they listed her as a Hispanic female who stood at about 5’2″ and weighed about 125 pounds.
She had short black hair but was known for her long braids, as seen in her photos.
