Sierra LaMar: Missing girl, accused killer, linked by friends? 
PUBLISHED: February 22, 2017 at 11:42 am | UPDATED: February 22, 2017 at 3:43 pm

SAN JOSE — Testimony by one of the lead investigators in the capital murder trial of the man accused of killing missing Morgan Hill teen Sierra LaMar revealed for the first time Wednesday that the two might be linked by friends, a revelation that could undermine the prosecution’s DNA-based case.

The prosecution’s case against Antolin Garcia-Torres relies largely on genetic evidence: finding DNA consistent with his on Sierra’s abandoned pants, and DNA consistent with hers in his car, including on a hair on a rope in the trunk. Garcia-Torres told police he’s never met Sierra.

But under questioning by Garcia-Torres’ lawyer, Al Lopez, on Wednesday, Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Sgt. Herman Leon acknowledged he has interviewed at least one person who indicated that Sierra and Garcia-Torres had mutual acquaintances.

On further questioning in Santa Clara County Superior Court by prosecutor David Boyd, Leon said he has no evidence Sierra’s friends were also friends with Garcia-Torres. She was 15 when she disappeared and he was 21. But Leon explained that a friend of Sierra’s had a sister who said she knew another person who was friends with Garcia-Torres.
