The agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI, for its acronym in English) in Texas could join the investigations to arrest Kristian García for the kidnapping of Jezabel Zamora and Zaylee Zamora, since kidnapping is considered a federal crime in the United States.
In the alert issued by the CCPD to locate Jezabel Zamora and Zaylee Zamora, they issued a description of the mother and daughter at the time they were kidnapped by Kristian García, which was provided to them by the witnesses who saw the crime that shocked the Hispanic community of Texas.

All the police corporations in the cities surrounding Corpus Christi, in southeastern Texas, are on high alert on the highways and rural roads looking for the girl and her daughter.
The frantic search to find the victims
In Texas, corporations are working against the clock in a desperate race, because at noon on Wednesday, June 9, 2020, they found parked the 2007 Cadillac Escalade truck, with Texas 4SJKC plates, with which they kidnapped Jezabel Zamora and her daughter Zaylee Zamora.
However, the CCPD did not release details of which police corporation in Texas found the Cadillac Escalade truck. That discovery allowed the various agents looking for Jezabel Zamora and her daughter Zaylee Zamora to discover that their abductor, Kristian García, had the help of another Hispanic man to commit the crime.
Kristian García had Rodrick García as an accomplice
CCPD agents already know that Rodrick García, 26, assisted Kristian García in the kidnapping of Jezabel Zamora and her daughter Zaylee Zamora. It is not detailed what is the relationship that Rodrick García has with Kristian García, since both men share the same surname. They both have active arrest warrants in Texas. It is not known in which car they travel.
The case in the kidnapping of Jezabel Zamora and her daughter Zaylee Zamora is particularly dramatic because Kristian García, the ex-boyfriend of the woman who perpetrated the kidnapping, is charged with the murder of a woman in a case that, according to Texas criminal records , dates back to last May.
Kristian García was already wanted for the murder of a woman
According to the CCPD’s Homicide Division, on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, a person called the emergency number to report the discovery of a dead woman. The corporation’s patrols showed up at 1:55 in the morning of that Wednesday to attend to the incident report.
The agents reported to an apartment complex at 4800 South Alameda Street in the southeastern Corpus Christi metropolitan area, and the resident of one of the apartments told authorities that he was absent from his home for several weeks. and when he returned he found a dead woman.
The kidnapping of Jezabel Zamora and Zaylee Zamora alarms Texas
In the investigation of the case, agents discovered that the deceased woman was 32-year-old Emily Nichole Walters. The official cause of death is not included in the investigation of the case, but the crime was classified as homicide by CCPD detectives. The motive for the crime is not in the investigation of the case either.
The agents of the CCPD’s Homicide Division have an arrest warrant against Kristian García for being the alleged perpetrator in the murder of Walters and to which was added the arrest warrant for aggravated robbery and now for the dramatic kidnapping of Jezebel Zamora and her daughter Zaylee Zamora, who has the authorities in Texas on edge.
Jezabel Zamora one more victim of domestic violence
The kidnapping of Jezabel Zamora and her baby Zaylee Zamora is circumscribed in the context of the pandemic of domestic violence against Hispanic women. The non-profit organization National Statistics on Domestic Violence (NCADV), ensures that the United States is experiencing a true pandemic of aggression,
Every minute, according to NCADV, 20 people are attacked by their partner in some way, including murder. One in four women and one in nine men are constantly subjected to violent abuse, causing them physical injury, emotion, trauma and anguish for the rest of their lives and even homicide.
There is help for Hispanic women who experience violence
As in the case against Jezabel Zamora and Zaylee Zamora, women between the ages of 18 and 24, almost always in their first serious relationship, are the most vulnerable and those who report the most cases of abuse every day. The kidnapping of Jezabel Zamora and Zaylee Zamora is part of the statistics for assaults on women.
The kidnapping of Zamora and her ex-partner’s baby is within the national context of domestic violence cases. According to the non-profit organization National Domestic Violence Hotline, one in four women in the United States suffers from an abusive relationship with her partner.
The pandemic of domestic violence in the United States
According to that same organization, every minute an average of 24 people, men and women, suffer some type of violence, rape, harassment and intimidation by their partners. That makes a total of 12 million people a year being victims of domestic violence, like the victim in the case against Kristian García.
The National Domestic Violence Hotline, which can be consulted online, has a series of recommendations in Spanish for people who suffer from partner abuse. The organization explains that there are different types of domestic violence and that the victim must learn to identify them, as in the case of Jezabel Zamora before the tragedy.
