Ariel Cruz allegedly killed ex-girlfriend Idania Campos

Houston police have arrested a man after he allegedly shot his ex-girlfriend to death because she broke up with him and then stuffed her body in the trunk of her car.

Ariel Cruz, 19, is charged with murder in the death of 21-year-old Idania Campos, the Houston Police Department said in a press release. Family members became concerned early Tuesday when they learned Campos had not shown up for school.

They tracked her phone to the 5400 block of Indigo Street and found her car, but they did not see her inside. She was reported missing to Houston police.

“Of course, if the family thought she was in the car, of course they would have made forced entry, but at this point, they just thought it was left there. Nobody at that point thought she was inside the trunk,” Houston police Lt. Alias Smith told local ABC affiliate KTRK.
