Pregnant Teen And Boyfriend Brutally Murdered

SAN ANTONIO, TX — New information has emerged in the investigation of the capital murder case involving 18-year-old pregnant woman Savanah Soto and her 22-year-old boyfriend, Matthew Guerra. The couple was found dead with gunshot wounds in their car at a Northwest Side apartment complex earlier this week.

The medical examiner has officially classified both deaths as homicides. San Antonio Police Chief William McManus described the crime as “heinous” and “unspeakable.”

In a press conference on Thursday, Chief McManus shared surveillance video footage showing two individuals of interest related to the case. Authorities are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying these persons, who may have information about the deaths of Savanah and Matthew.

“We are hoping that someone is able to identify the individuals that are seen in this video,” said Chief McManus. He emphasized that locating these individuals could provide valuable leads in determining the events leading up to the couple’s deaths.

The surveillance video reveals what investigators believe happened after the couple was killed. Detectives suspect that Savanah and Matthew were already deceased when the video was captured. The footage shows the two persons of interest: one driving a dark-colored pickup truck, the other driving the victims’ Silver Kia Optima. Video footage also shows them wiping down the car to remove fingerprints before abandoning it with the victims’ bodies inside.

McManus stated that detectives are also examining social media and cell phone records to uncover the victims’ last communications. The connection between the persons of interest and the victims remains unclear.

Bexar County District Attorney Joe Gonzales explained that, under Texas law, the unborn child of Savanah and Matthew would be considered a person for legal purposes. This means that if the culprits responsible for the crime are apprehended, they could face additional charges due to the death of the couple’s unborn son, Favian.

Gonzales hoped that those responsible for the crime would be brought to justice, saying, “We are going to do everything humanly possible to hold this individual or individuals accountable.”

The authorities are urging anyone with information about the persons of interest or any relevant details about the case to come forward and assist in the ongoing investigation.
