Sierra LaMar Suspect Watched for Weeks Hoping He Would Lead Them To Teen

By ALYSSA NEWCOMB (@alyssanewcomb) , KEVIN DOLAK (@kdolak) and DEAN SCHABNER
May 22, 2012

Santa Clara County police said today they had been following the suspect in the kidnapping and murder of Sierra LaMar since March 28, hoping he would lead them to the missing teen.

Antolin Garcia Torres, 21, was arrested Monday and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of murder and kidnapping, according to the sheriff's department.

Police said he was not being cooperative and they are still looking for LaMar.

The girl's mother, Marlene LaMar, made an emotional plea to Garcia-Torres and anyone who may have information about the case at a news conference today.

"Please give the information that you have to lead us to Sierra to help end this nightmare. I would like you to come forward and say where she is and end this nightmare for us as a family." she said.

LaMar said she is holding out hope her daughter is still alive.

"Until she is found,our search is still not going to end," she said. "As a mother, still I am hopeful because her body has not been found and that gives me hope."

The cheerleader disappeared on March 16 on her way to a school bus. Two days later, authorities found her cellphone and Juicy brand bag containing a pair of folded jeans and a T-shirt two miles from her home.

DNA was found on several of the teen's belongings and was run through a state database, said Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith. That DNA was a match for Antolin Garcia Torres who had a submitted DNA during a felony arrest that had not been prosecuted, she said.

The discovery prompted police to follow him 24/7 starting March 28. "Public safety was our primary concern," she said.

Smith did not say today what prompted police to end their surveillance and arrest Garcia-Torres, but on Monday after the arrest she said, "He was arrested today because this is how we thought that the arrest should be done and public safety is our number one concern. We don't want anyone else hurt. We don't want any more little girls taken."

The suspect is from Morgan Hill, the same area where Sierra lived with her family and where the teen disappeared. He is the owner of the red Volkswagen Jetta that police seized on April 7.

"We have physical evidence linking Sierra to his vehicle," Smith said today.

Garcia-Torres was arrested around 6 p.m. at the Safeway store where he works.

Divers began searching reservoirs near her home last month, but have yet to come up with a trace of the teen.

Last week's episode of the TV program "America's Most Wanted" featured LaMar's case, and investigators have since been sorting through a series of tips and possible leads.

Normal Sierra LaMar's parents hold out hope even as cops arrest murder suspect

Police arrested a suspect in connection with the disappearance of California teen Sierra LaMar, who went missing two months ago. The suspect, Antolin Garcia-Torres, has been booked into the Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of murder and kidnapping. NBC's Kristen Dahlgren reports.

By NBCBayArea.com and msnbc.com staff
Updated 12:16 p.m. -- The parents of missing California teenager Sierra LaMar said they are not giving up hope of finding their daughter, even as police booked a 21-year-old man late Monday for her murder and kidnapping.

"Our search still is not going to end," Sierra's mother Marlene LaMar said at a press conference Tuesday. "As a mother, I’m hopeful because her body has not been found."

Antolin Garcia-Torres, from Morgan Hill, was booked into jail Monday evening after being taken into custody at a Safeway in Morgan Hill, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office.

Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith said the suspect had been under surveillance since the investigators received the lab reports of his DNA found on LaMar's discarded clothes.

"We were hoping that he would lead us to where Sierra was,” Smith said Tuesday, adding that the decision to book Garcia-Torres came out of concern for public safety.

The Santa Clara County Sheriff's office holds a news conference regarding the arrest of 21-year-old Antolin Garcia-Torres in connection with the kidnapping and suspected murder of 15-year-old Sierra LaMar. The teen's parents also speak out at the press conference.
"We wanted to make sure that this doesn’t happen again,” she said.

LaMar, 15, also from Morgan Hill, has been missing for more than two months.

Garcia-Torres' arrest Monday marked the first time detectives have said what the community has feared since LaMar vanished on her way to school on March 16: That they think LaMar was murdered.

While LaMar's body has not been found, the sheriff said there is strong evidence pointing to homicide. Smith said investigators have not found any blood, and she refused to say any more on the nature of the physical evidence found on LaMar's clothes and in the suspect's vehicle.

"These are very very difficult cases, to prosecute a homicide when you haven’t found the victim,” she said.

Smith also said there is no indication LaMar had run away from home and no information indicating the victim knew Garcia-Torres.
"It’s my belief this was purely random," she added.

Garcia-Torres' record shows a prior conviction for interfering with an officer, which qualifies as a misdemeanor, and a felony arrest for assault for which he was not prosecuted, the sheriff said.

Interviews with the suspect haven't yet revealed anything "substantive" about LaMar's whereabouts, Smith said.

Police suspect Sierra LaMar -- seen in images posted on Facebook.com/help.find.sierra -- has been murdered.

LaMar's mother pleaded with Garcia-Torres to cooperate with the investigators.

“Please, please give the information that you have to lead us to Sierra,” she said. "I would like you to come forward and say where she is and end this nightmare.”

Volunteers, officials searched
Volunteers and sheriff's officials have continuously searched the fields, open spaces and reservoirs near Morgan Hill since her disappearance, The Associated Press reported.

A Facebook page was set up to try to help find her. Both the sheriff and the LaMar family acknowledged the community's support throughout the investigation.

"We still need your support," Sierra's father Steve LaMar said Tuesday. "We need to bring Sierra home.”

The KlaasKids Foundation, founded by Marc Klaas, whose 12-year-old daughter Polly was kidnapped from her Petaluma home and murdered in 1993, has been organizing volunteer searches on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the AP added.

Investigators found Sierra's handbag with clothing and a cellphone along the side of the road near her home on March 17, the day after Sierra's mother reported her missing.

Earlier this month, investigators located a red Volkswagen Jetta they said may have been connected to Sierra's abduction given that surveillance cameras and witnesses put the car near the area where authorities believe she disappeared.

Sheriff's officials have released few details about leads in the case, including what, if any, evidence they found in the car.

Hard to believe it was just random. I wonder if he had seen her at the Safeway store and was stalking her? I don't quite get if they have been following him since March 28th, why they announced details about the red and black jetta - just to make him nervous? I really hope he tells where she is, maybe they added the murder charge to get him to confess?

Here's full video of his perp walk. Check out the insolent sneer on his face. He looks right into the camera at every possible chance and doesn't try to hide his face like some criminals do. And once in the car he looks like he's smiling. Ugh.

Normal Sheriff Smith says Sierra LaMar is dead, Morgan Hill man is the killer

Post by raine1953 on Tue May 22, 2012 1:08 pm

Santa County Sheriff County Laurie Smith said evidence leads her office to believe missing teen Sierra LaMar is dead, and that a 21-year-old Morgan Hill man is her killer.
Antolin Garcia-Torres was booked Monday night into the county main jail on one count of murder and one count of kidnapping after being taken in custody hours earlier at a Safeway in Morgan Hill -- more than two months after Sierra was last seen.
"Our investigation has led to the identification of Antolin Garcia-Torres as the person responsible for the kidnap and murder of Sierra LaMar," Smith said at a Tuesday morning press conference. "We developed this through our investigation based on direct and circumstantial evidence including forensic
analysis conducted by the Santa Clara County DA's crime lab."
Garcia-Torres' family defended him.
"It's not him," sister Lucero Garcia said. She added she knows how it sounds when the family members of accused criminals speak up on their behalf, but "I honestly feel they don't have enough evidence to convict him."
Despite Smith's announcement, Marlene LaMar said her family has not given up hope her 15-year-old daughter will be found alive.
"We continue to pray until she is found," LaMar said. "Our search is not going to end. As a mother I'm hopeful. Her body has not been found and that gives me hope."
Authorities, though, said they are certain she is dead and are hoping to get more information from the suspect that leads them to the body. Her mother, fighting back tears, asked Garcia-Torres to provide more information to investigators.
"I do have a plea to the perpetrator. Please give the information that you have to," Marlene LaMar said. "Lead us to Sierra and end this nightmare. Come forward and say where she is and end this nightmare for us as a family."
Smith said investigators initially had many suspects, but right now they believe only one person is responsible for the kidnap and murder of Sierra: Garcia-Torres.
The first deputy who responded to the March 16 missing person's report on Sierra knew immediately she was not a runaway, Smith said. But Sierra was not taken off the missing person's list until 10 days after her disappearance.
Two days after she was reported missing, Sierra's bag and some clothing were found.
"It was that clothing that was really instrumental in identifying the suspect," Smith said.
Smith said from March 28 on, Garcia-Torres was under 24-hour surveillance, hoping they would find Sierra.
"He may have believed he was under surveillance," Smith said. "We talked to him multiple times.''
Smith said she believes this was a stranger abduction, the "worst type of crime."
In March 2009, there were three assaults in the Morgan Hill area. Forensic evidence leads investigators to believe Garcia-Torres committed at least one of them, Smith said.
Since January of 2011 in Santa Clara county alone there are 43 missing females that have never returned home. Smith said "you wonder" if any of those actually were abductions also."
The sheriff's office previously announced that a red Volkswagen Jetta with a black hood may be connected to the case, and according to authorities, Garcia-Torres is the owner of the car, which was seized on May 8.
Kenneth Piccolo, a former English teacher for Antolin Garcia-Torres at Central Continuation High School, said he remembers Garcia-Torres' Jetta.
"My car has a black hood too, and we joked about it," Piccolo said. "You don't put two and two together and think, that's Antolin's car."
"I'm in total shock right now," Piccolo said. "We never thought he was a criminal or a troublemaker."
Piccolo described Garcia-Torres as "always respectful, very polite," and a "bigger than life presence on campus; very social." He didn't graduate because he didn't all his work, not for lack of intelligence, he said.
Sierra disappeared while she was supposed to be on her way to a school bus stop.
The day after her disappearance, investigators found her cellphone a few blocks east of her school bus stop. And, the next day, her pink Juicy-brand bag was found, containing a neatly folded T-shirt and pants.
KTVU-2 reported that Garcia-Torres was arrested around 6 p.m. at a Safeway store on Tennant Avenue in Morgan Hill, where he once worked.
Witnesses to the arrest told the television station that sheriff's officers took Garcia-Torres into custody at gunpoint. A broadcast showed him, clad in shorts and a tank-top with a chain connecting his wrists to his waist, being escorted away from the sheriff's office after an interview said to have lasted three hours.
Marc Klaas, who has been organizing volunteer searches since Sierra's disappearance, says he was given the same incomplete news after his own 12-year-old daughter, Polly, was kidnapped from their Petaluma home in 1993.
"I would say they're very angry now," Klaas said of the LaMar family, although he hadn't talked to them late Monday night.
"They've been told somebody murdered their daughter, but they can't prove it. That's how I felt. They needed to prove to me one way or another before I would accept anything, until they proved to me my daughter was dead."
After being dominated by fear and anger for the past two months, the LaMar family is now "possibly at the point where there won't be anything left to be afraid of," Klaas said.
Until Sierra's body is recovered, he said, his volunteers will continue with a scheduled search Wednesday "in hopes of still finding Sierra alive."
Monday's arrest marks a sad turn to a case that began after the teen from the Morgan Hill area vanished on the way to school, sparking countless volunteer searches as her family and authorities scoured fields, creeks, back roads and reservoirs in hopes of finding Sierra.
Over the past two months, critical developments in the case emerged but none was revealed to be a breakthrough -- until now.
Ten days after Sierra disappeared, the Sheriff's Office took her off the missing persons list and Monday's arrest suggested the worst.
"As difficult as it is, and as much as you want your child home and safe, you need a resolution. You need to know. There are far too many cases unsolved or cold that leave people in limbo from which they're unable to move forward," Klaas said.
"Imagine what it's like," he said, "to be told day after day that there's no real news? You get to the point you just need news. You need to know where is my child?"

He HAD to know he was under surveillance and it was just a matter of time before he was arrested.

He looks like the devil to me!

Info on the Torres and the trailer he was living in with his mom, wife and 18 month old baby!

(05-22) 11:33 PDT MORGAN HILL -- The apparent slaying of a 15-year-old South Bay girl was a "purely random" crime committed by a man who did not know the teenager, the Santa Clara County sheriff said Tuesday.

DNA found on discarded clothes belonging to Sierra LaMar linked 21-year-old Antolin Garcia-Torres to the girl's March disappearance and apparent slaying, Sheriff Laurie Smith said at a news conference.

She would not specify the nature of the DNA, but said it was not blood. The girl's body has not been found, but Smith said "direct and circumstantial evidence, including forensic evidence, have contributed to our belief that Sierra is a victim of murder."

Garcia-Torres was booked at Santa Clara County Jail late Monday on suspicion of murder and kidnapping.

Smith said investigators do not have a motive for the crime.

There is "no motive," the sheriff said. "It is my belief that this was purely random. It was an absolute stranger abduction, the worst kind of crime, a stranger abducting a young girl."

Sierra's mother last saw the girl March 16 at their home in an unincorporated area near Morgan Hill, before the teenager was to leave for school. The girl usually caught a bus to Sobrato High School, but she never made it to campus that day.

Her mother, Marlene LaMar, called on Garcia-Torres to cooperate with investigators.

"I do have a plea to the perpetrator to please give the information that you have to lead us to Sierra," she said at the news conference, held at the sheriff's headquarters in San Jose. "I would like you to come forward and say where she is and end this nightmare for us as a family."

She added, "I am not giving up hope. Her body has not been found."

Garcia-Torres attended a Morgan Hill continuation school, Central High School. He lives in a trailer park in the city with his mother, wife and 18-month-old child, neighbors said. Several "Missing" fliers of Sierra are taped around the park, including one on a lamp post 25 yards from Garcia-Torres' home.

The Garcia-Torres property is strewn with garbage, baby strollers and sippy cups.

The suspect's mother, Laura Torres, arrived home from her night shift as a nurse at a convalescent home to find reporters waiting near her trailer.

She said she spoke to her son Monday night and was distraught about his arrest.

"He said, 'Don't worry about me, mom. I am going to be OK,' " Torres said. "I told my son, 'Well, if you didn't do it, you don't have anything to worry about.' "

She added, "He would say, "Mom, I have never seen that lady,' " referring to Sierra.

Torres said her son was "always quiet, always respectful, always close to me. It is unbelievable that this is happening to him. I feel like all of this is wrong. ... What parent wants to believe their son did something wrong?"

Garcia-Torres' father is in jail in Santa Clara County and his brother recently died in Mexico after a life of drinking and drug abuse, Torres said.

Elizabeth Ruano, 19, who lives in the trailer next door, said police had searched the property a few weeks ago.

She said Garcia-Torres and his family are quiet and keep to themselves. However, that was not the case with Garcia-Torres' previous home.

Before moving to the trailer park, Garcia-Torres and his family were thrown out of a Morgan Hill farmhouse in the summer of 2010 for keeping pit bulls on the property and allowing non-tenants to stay there, their landlord said. She spoke on condition of anonymity, saying she feared for her safety.

"They were the nightmare that never ended," the landlord said.

Garcia-Torres has a misdemeanor conviction for "interfering with an officer" and a separate felony arrest for assault, for which he was not prosecuted, the sheriff said.

Garcia-Torres is believed to be linked to a 2009 assault in Morgan Hill, Smith said. She did not specify whether that was the case in which he was arrested.

Other earlier assaults that happened in Morgan Hill (in the Safeway parking lot) that they couldn't prove yet that he was connected to. But that sketch does look like him.

Criminal Profiler Pat Brown
If any of you remember, I said I believed Sierra LaMar was grabbed by a very local guy who was not that experienced due to the fact her purse and clothing were found right in the area in the open. They just arrested a man who works at the Safeway store right there in Morgan Hill.

The location of these attacks the Safeway parking lot where he was employed? These were crimes of convenience.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

His wonderful sister is going to give him an alibi. She states that she was with the monster on the morning when Sierra was abducted.

"Victoria Sarmiento Martinez: u guys r dumb of course shes mad we were with him that morning amd how do they know shes dead wheres the proof of that huh no where"


Sister-in-law has also insinuated that because Sierra had filthy posts on her twitter that she deserved to be abducted. Classic troll family behavior.

"Victoria Sarmiento Martinez: did it is still out there. look at her twitter she dont look so innocent talking about her pussy and shit wtf were hurt to thos is ripping r familly and stressing us put to how to thonk hos baby girl feels asking for daddy every 5sec. hes a great fater the best ive seen and a great uncle"




Here’s his sweet lil wife’s comments:

"Francine Sarmiento: Nope cant see the resemblence he wouldnt go for no nasty dirty ho

Francine Sarmiento: Have you seen her twitter thats a DIRTY NASTY HO!

Francine Sarmiento: You guys can think and say what you want but the cops have been lying to everyone ya i feel bad forher fam biy dam youever know if you were in my position you might just say the same thing or worse you dont knowhow it feels uil it happens"

Well, I've read her tumblr and twitter comments, they've been posted on a few message boards. They were kind of "gangsta talk" but I think that was just Sierra and her friends goofing around. Her tumblr did have some questionable pics on it, but according to some posters who have teens, that's how kids talk online now. I'll see if I can find that link to Sierra's posts.

hmm, looks like her tumblr account has been closed, you used to be able to see lots of (what I as an OLDER person) thought were racy photos. Not of herself so much, just things she found and posted.

OMG!! I had to click off on the Tumbler acct. The song, if you want to call it that, was Horrendous! They lyrics were despicable! And, some of those pics.. faint

As far as her Twitter acct, I am NOT impressed. Seems she has done drugs and some of her comments are WAY over the top for her age. I wonder if her parents had any clue about these accts.

How in the world did you find these, Sam? You're good!!

I thought of Sierra as this sweet little school girl but damn, those accounts make me think twice. This is NOT to say she deserved what she got but it does make me wonder if her parents were Blind to her Real life. Makes me Happy as hell I don't have a teenage daughter.

Now, she is missing and likely deceased at the hands of this dude. And his family? Unreal to go online and discuss this case at all. Are they stupid? They need to zip it or go to the police and say he was with his sister..have her take a poly. Bet she won't pass.

No matter what Sierra's life was Really like, she did NOT deserve what happened to her.

Wow don't Parents monitor their 15 yr old daughter on line activities? I was shocked at her http://cccairuh.tumblr.com/ account. Not saying she deserved this at all. I am just saying Parents wake up and pay attention to what your kids are doing on line.

Normal Searches continue for Sierra LaMar after suspect's arrest

Post by Wrapitup on Wed May 23, 2012 12:57 pm

By Robert Salonga [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Posted: 05/23/2012 09:36:41 AM PDT
Updated: 05/23/2012 10:49:35 AM PDT

A day and a half after the arrest of a man accused of kidnapping and murdering Sierra LaMar, both authorities and volunteers are continuing their searches for her.
The Santa Clara Sheriff's Office is looking for her body. The volunteers, who also have been scouring the southern portion of the county, are holding out hope they might find the 15-year-old Morgan Hill-area teen alive.

"My hope is that she is still alive, that he just has her somewhere," Karah Silacci, a 38-year-old Gilroy resident who has volunteered in the search effort since its inception, said Tuesday as she was gearing up to participate in Wednesday's search. "If she's not, we still have to bring her home."

Sheriff's divers Wednesday were scheduled to probe the Uvas Reservoir, 10 miles southwest of the unincorporated neighborhood off Palm and Dougherty avenues where Sierra vanished March 16. Sgt. Jose Cardoza said that will extend to other area waterways throughout the week.

The KlaasKids Foundation, which since the disappearance has spearheaded a civilian volunteer search based at Burnett Elementary School in Morgan Hill, also planned to search the area Wednesday.

The group canceled a search scheduled for Saturday, partly at the behest of Sierra's mother Marlene, who said in a statement she wants volunteers to spend the Memorial Day weekend with their families. Searches will resume May 30 and June 2, if Sierra has not been found earlier.

The mood for the searches has turned somber since the Monday-night arrest of Antolin Garcia-Torres, a 21-year-old Morgan Hill resident, on suspicion of the kidnap and murder of Sierra. The Sheriff's Office had been watching Garcia-Torres for about two months before they apprehended him, bolstered by a DNA test that confirmed Sierra had been inside Garcia-Torres' red Jetta.

Investigators also say they found the suspect's DNA on a Juicy Couture-brand bag belonging to the teen that was recovered a short time after she was reported missing.
Cardoza acknowledged that the arrest casts a pall on the belief by family and search volunteers that the teen might be alive, but said the Sheriff's Office is bound by the results of the investigation.

"We respect the family's opinion, and the searchers' opinion," Cardoza said. "The detectives know this case and they're basing their opinion on the work they've been doing. Garcia-Torres is responsible for the kidnapping and murder."

That is not enough to dissuade neither the LaMar family nor Silacci, who insist on remaining optimistic given that Sierra is still out there.

"Until we bring Sierra home, we'll be doing everything we can," Silacci said. "If it was our daughter, we'd want the same."

OMG!!!! I just read/looked at that account!!! I don't get shocked by much anymore but a 15 year old with that disgusting stuff on there? I'll bet that account was not monitored by her parents and that's so important these days!!!!! No she did NOT deserve whatever happened to her but I sure wonder who she hung out with? That poor girl, so young thinking she was so grown up and one has to wonder what type of people she came across. So damn sad. JMOO!

I didn't even turn on the sound. Since I'm at Sherry's, in the family room, her husband is here I thought I'd best not. They'd think I've finally completely lost my mind even thou I could explain it away.

Yeah, pretty scary stuff for a 15 year old girl to be posting online. Obviously her mom had no clue what she was up to.

Still that video above says Torres's DNA has been linked to one other assault in the area, so this guy seems like a serial attacker to me.

Those links to twitter and tumblr were posted at the beginning of the case, Wrap, I think it may have been on hinky I saw them, not sure. I used to read there daily.

agreed agreed agreed I read her account earlier and was shocked also. Supervision in every aspect is so important with kids today. Parents just don't care as long as they are out of their hair. agreed also that it is so sad.

Thanks, lindamarie. It's nice to be following a case where they actually found the suspect. Hopefully they'll find Sierra also.

This is sad. Suspect's family considered him the "good son."

I must be old because I've never heard of Tumblr before so I followed Sam's link to check it out. As most of you know I frequently use pictures to express myself so when I hit Sierra's page I was absolutely mesmerized. I looked at each picture, read each caption, studied every facial expression and pose (it took some time). I was as you all were surprised by what I found posted by a 15 year old girl.

These are my opinions only and have no basis of fact other than that.
Once I got past her attraction to little gangster boys, rap music and all things associated with that, (WEED, COCAINE, TATTOOS, PITBULLS, GUNS etc...) I saw someone projecting to the world one image as the good school girl, cheerleader, who was an open book to her mother, someone so connected to those things that she would never up and run away. (This person is seen nowhere on her Tumblr account. The pretty sweet pictures of her that are present have a nasty ass rap song playing in the background.)

What I saw on Tumblr was a girl who is struggling with being attracted to other females and is probably Bisexual.
The word “FAKE” is repeated numerous times as is the word “UGLY”
There are several mentions of people who have committed suicide.
I think she might be a cutter as several of her pictures depict that.
I also think that she loves someone young fighting and possibly dying from cancer.
Her dad is mentioned a few times which makes me wonder if he’s involved in her life or is an absentee parent.


Then on the evening news I saw this picture of Antolin Garcia-Torres

Missing 15 Year Old Sierra Lamar ~ Her Cell Phone & A Bag With Her Clothes Found~ Suspect Antolin Garcia-Torres Arrested & Charged With Kidnapping & Murder~ Her Remains Have Not Been Found - Page 3 86745410
And freaked out because I saw this same picture near the bottom on the first page of Sierra’s Tumblr pages. (At the time I disregarded it because it doesn't look anything like him now.) I revisited the site to be certain and to my surprise the picture as been REMOVED! Just a big blank square with a small red x in it’s place.
And other things and pictures have been deleted and moved around to other places. I am made to wonder if only the creator can edit the pages or if someone can delete their images on someone else’s page?

Was Sierra’s abduction really a random act? Or did this guy know who he was taking?
And if only the person who created the page can do the editing does that mean she's still alive?

There are so many pictures of drugs on Sierra's account pages makes me think that her school should require their students to pass a drug test before participating in sports or cheer-leading!

Wow Sam his family thought he was the "good son". Makes me wonder about the other Son's. Nite your posts got my brain working and I too remember seeing that picture when I checked the link. For some reason I can't wrap my mind around this being a random act. From what I know about computers, hackers can get in to a persons web site. With the national attention this case received it made her web site attractive to a hacker.

I think maybe the FBI or LE took down some of those pics. They can do pretty much anything.

Wow, Nite!! Makes us Have to wonder if the above took down those pics (just a random thought here) they Have to be aware that this was NOT a random act.

Nite, thanks for checking out that Tumblr account so thoroughly. I do not think this was "random" at all. I think he knew her and knew she took the school bus every morning. How could he NOT know her if his pic is or was plastered on her Tumblr account?

And, Sam, as LM said, had it not been for you we would not have all this info. Makes me wonder if Marc Klass is aware of the above.

The "good son", huh? I do not think so

Normal Court Date Set For Morgan Hill Suspect In Murder Of Sierra LaMar

Post by Wrapitup on Thu May 24, 2012 12:07 pm

May 23, 2012 7:39 PM

MORGAN HILL (CBS SF) – A 21-year-old Morgan Hill man who is being charged with the murder of missing teenager Sierra LaMar will appear in court on Thursday afternoon, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office.

Antolin Garcia-Torres, who was arrested Monday evening on suspicion of murder and kidnapping, is being held without bail at the Santa Clara County Main Jail. He was scheduled to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

Sierra, a 15-year-old student at Sobrato High School in Morgan Hill, was last seen the morning of March 16.

Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith said at a news conference Tuesday morning that investigators believe Sierra was murdered by Garcia-Torres after being abducted by him. She said it does not appear the two knew each other.

A sheriff’s dive team resumed its search of local reservoirs and waterways Wednesday, and were focusing on the Uvas Reservoir. Volunteer searchers are scouring the area around the reservoir, Klaas Kids Foundation volunteer coordinator Teresa Casillas said.

Earlier this month, the sheriff’s office seized a red Volkswagen Jetta that investigators now say belongs to Garcia-Torres.

Garcia-Torres has been under 24-hour surveillance since March 28, when the sheriff’s office linked him to the Sierra LaMar case through DNA evidence left on articles of clothing in Sierra’s discarded purse, which was found about 2 miles from her house days after her disappearance.

Smith said no blood was found in the car or on her clothing, and investigators do not have a murder weapon or a motive.

Tom DiVittorio, the owner of Maple Leaf RV Park at 15200 Monterey Road in Morgan Hill, said this morning that Garcia-Torres lived there with his mother and sister.


DiVittorio said the mother had lived there about two years, but said she is now looking to move. He said he had never had any problems with the family.

A woman in the bakery department at a Safeway store at 100 Tennant Ave. in Morgan Hill said Garcia-Torres had worked at the grocery store, but not for some time.

An assistant manager at Famous Dave’s BBQ in Gilroy said Garcia-Torres’ sister Lucero Garcia works at the restaurant and also holds another job. He characterized her as a hard worker.

He said Lucero Garcia’s coworkers are all praying for her, adding, “She is the sweetest thing.”


The manager said he had never met her brother, Garcia-Torres.

Nite, I went back to that horrible Tumlr acct and was on it a good 10 min (turned down the sound) and saw nowhere that a pic had been blocked out but just couldn't look at it anymore. It goes on and on and on. Horrific and depressing!!!

I completely agree w/your synopsis of Sierra. So sad that the parents had no clue what this girl was really all about.

And, IF the FBI or LE did NOT take that pic down, I do wonder if it was hacked in to. Some of those pics are despicable!! OMG, absolutely scary..reminds me of a gang member.

My thoughts on this are that the OWNER of an image has the power to remove it from someone else's page. This man's family already seem familiar with other accounts Sierra has and have publicly voiced that. Perhaps they removed the picture when they came across her Tumblr page.
Also the picture we're referring to was taken while he was incarcerated (don't know for what).

OK..thanks! Makes sense. But makes me wonder, too - Does This Mean She's Alive?

She HAD to KNOW him.

Wow, nite, good catch! I hope LE is aware that Sierra had his pic on her tumblr. That changes everything. (And I wasn't aware of tumblr before all this either - possibly a good thing.)

Nor was I. Also wondering if LE is aware of her acct and they are just telling the media that this was purely random.

If that picture was uploaded/hosted on a site like Photobucket yes the owner would be able to delete that picture.

That's true!!!!! Should have figured that one out from past experience here!

So, the question looms..WHY was his picture on her Tumblr account? Of all the gazillion dudes, HIS is on her account.

Maybe someone should send Nite's pic and info to their tipline in case they never saw the pic before it was taken down? Or to Mark Klaas?
