Victim's body still not found

by: WASHINGTON COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE - Eloy Vasquez-SantiagoA 29-year-old Beaverton man has been charged with killing a 56-year-old Hillsboro woman whose body has not yet been found.

A Washington County grand jury indicted Eloy Vasquez-Santiago on one count of murder in the death of Maria Bolanos-Rivera based in parts on statements he made to investigators, according to Lt. Mike Rouches, Hillsboro police spokesman.

“We believe that he killed her on or about Aug. 26, but we don’t yet know where yet,” says Rouches.

According to Rouches, Vasquez-Santiago was acquainted with Bolanos-Rivera, whose family reported her missing after Aug. 26. Rouches says Vasquez-Santiago traveled to Mexico from his Beaverton home around that time, but recently returned to the border, turned himself in and was arrested.

Rouches says Vasquez-Santiago waived extradiction and was lodged in the Washington County Jail on Monday.

"A lot of details have yet to be filled in,” Rouches says.
