One year on: Search continues for Christina Morris
August 30, 2015

 
Christina Morris, 23, was last observed in a haunting surveillance video, walking up a ramp in the garage of a Plano shopping center in the predawn hours of August 30, 2014. She was accompanied by a man later identified as Enrique Arochi, a high school acquaintance.

There has been no trace of Morris in the 12 months that followed, despite police investigations and an exhaustive effort by friends and family members to find her.
 
More than a month after Christina Morris disappeared, Plano police named Arochi as a suspect for interfering with their investigation. He was arrested on December 13 and charged with aggravated kidnapping. His arrest was partly based on DNA samples taken during the investigation. A search warrant affidavit said there was evidence that Morris had been forced inside the trunk of Arochi's car.
He has maintained his innocence.

"I feel they are wasting their time on me when they can be looking at somebody else that is actually the suspect, or the person that actually did it," Arochi told WFAA in an interview before he was arrested.

"We have believed — almost from the onset — that at the very least, [Arochi]  knows something... he has to," Anna Morris said. "We've begged and pleaded with him, his family —  anyone we can talk to — to just let us know where she is. We don't really care about the rest... we just want her to come home."

Arochi's trial has been set for November 30.

New evidence found in Christina Morris Case

 http://www.fox4news.com/news/21327761-story

 

Police arrested Arochi on kidnapping charges after they say Morris’ DNA was found in the trunk of his car.

During a pre-trial hearing Friday morning, prosecutors said they found new fibers in an HVAC.

The trial was scheduled to begin in November, but now may be delayed a bit because of the new evidence.

Testing new DNA evidence could delay Arochi trial
Carla Wade, WFAA 1:15 p.m. CDT September 18, 2015

COLLIN COUNTY -- Newly discovered evidence could delay the trial for the man accused in the disappearance of Christina Morris, her mother said Friday.

"Most likely 100 percent the trial won't be happening in November," said Jonni McElroy after a pre-trial hearing at the Collin County Courthouse in McKinney.

 

McElroy was in the courtroom along with other family members when prosecutors announced more evidence had been found this week. Prosecutors said more hairs had turned up in the contents of a shop vacuum. Those hairs will be sent to a lab at the University of North Texas in Denton next week, but DNA testing on the hair could take up to 12 weeks making it likely that Arochi's trial will not start on Nov. 30 as scheduled.

"We want this over as soon as possible," said McElroy. "But then we also want to make sure that justice is served up 100 percent."

The Disappearance of Christina Morris: A Mother’s Obsession with Finding Her Daughter Is Destroying Her Marriage

Jonni’s 23-year-old daughter, Christina Morris, disappeared almost two years ago, after a night out with friends. She was last seen on surveillance video walking into a parking garage with an acquaintance, Enrique Arochi. Just three minutes later, Enrique was seen on that same camera leaving the parking garage alone in his car. Christina has not been seen or heard from since. Although Enrique has denied any involvement in Christina’s disappearance, he was arrested three-and-a-half months later and charged with aggravated kidnapping, after authorities say Christina’s DNA was found in the trunk of his car. Jonni says she has become obsessed with finding her daughter, and it’s destroying her marriage. Jonni says she left her husband, Ronnie, behind and moved from Oklahoma to Texas for eight months to search for her daughter. She says her husband realized her only focus is on finding her daughter, not him or her stepchildren. Jonni says she searched every day for 10-12 hours for her daughter and wanted her husband there with her -- but Ronnie says he works 40-60 hours a week and can’t spend all his time trekking through the woods looking for Christina. But Jonni says she will not stop searching until Christina is found. Can Dr. Phil help this couple get their marriage back on track? And, what happened to Christina? Jonni says she has even gotten on her hands and knees and begged Enrique’s father to talk to his son and have him tell her where her daughter is. Plus, an update on the disappearance of Dylan Redwine, who vanished without a trace almost three years ago. The La Plata County Sheriff’s office named a person of interest in August 2015. Find out who that is. His mother, Elaine, gives us an update on the case.

Prosecutor's Agenda in Arochi Trial: Surveillance Video, DNA, Cell Phone Records


By Alice Barr

Published Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2016

Day one of the Enrique Arochi trial kicked off with opening statements and the prosecution’s first two witnesses.
Arochi is the man accused of kidnapping Christina Morris. She vanished in 2014 from a Plano parking garage.

 

Prosecutors want the jury to rely on three key areas of evidence against Arochi, who went to high school with Morris.

First: Surveillance video showing Morris for the last time, walking with Arochi into a parking garage; plus more video showing him washing the trunk of his car the next day.

Secondly: Morris’ DNA that investigators found in the trunk of Arochi's car.

Third: Cell phone pings showing the pair was together for some time after leaving a party with a group of friends.

Prosecutors argue Arochi kidnapped Morris and planned to sexually assault her, after another friend turned him down.
The defense, meanwhile, is shifting focus to another man, Morris’ boyfriend at the time, who is now in prison serving a drug sentence.

Morris’ co-workers testified she and her boyfriend had been fighting a lot and the defense showed several angry text messages they exchanged the night she disappeared.

As for the DNA, the defense said the same crime scene technician analyzed Morris’ car shortly before Arochi's and that she could have accidentally transferred the DNA from one car to the other.

There will be at least 23 witnesses called, including Morris’ old boyfriend the defense is focused on, her parents and several friends.

Boyfriend Pleads the Fifth, Christina Morris' Father Testifies in Day 2 of Enrique Arochi Trial

By Alice Barr

Published Friday, Sept. 9, 2016

Day two of the Enrique Arochi trial began with Christina Morris’ father on the stand, testifying against the man charged with kidnapping her.
Arochi was the last person seen with Morris before she disappeared on Labor Day weekend two years ago.

Morris’ father, Mark Morris, listened on the stand while prosecutors played the nine-minute 911 call when he first reported his daughter missing.
Two years later, he said he still goes out and searches for her every weekend.

Mark Morris described those first few days when he found out his daughter was missing and when he learned Arochi was the last person seen with her. Arochi and Morris were shown in surveillance video walking into a parking garage at the Shops at Legacy in Plano.
The Plano police officer who found Morris’ car still parked in the garage several days after she went missing also testified. Arochi’s car had been parked very close by Morris’ when they went out together with friends that weekend. The officer said there was nothing suspicious in the garage or nearby trash cans.

A Plano police lieutenant testified that he does believe Morris was abducted from the parking garage. But a crime scene technician who photographed the parking garage and searched it for evidence testified that she found no signs of blood or any other fluids at the scene.
Morris’ DNA was later found in the trunk of Arochi's car. Mark Morris and three close friends all testified about that Thursday, saying Christina was afraid of the dark and claustrophobic. Her father said she would never willingly get in a trunk because it would terrorize her "beyond belief."

The defense, meanwhile, keeps steering each witness back to another man, Christina Morris’ boyfriend Hunter Foster.

Her father testified that he knew Foster was into drugs, the jury heard that a friend described him as a "thug" and that her friends were concerned about their relationship.

Police also said they Foster didn't report Morris missing for several days and that they couldn't reach him on the phone after the disappearance.
Foster was expected to take the stand Thursday. But instead he exercised his Fifth Amendment right not to testify.

His lawyers argued he couldn't testify without incriminating himself for drug dealing that night. On Wednesday, the defense showed the jury what they said were text messages of Christina Morris asking Foster for drugs that night. He is already in prison serving time for separate drug charges.

 

Prosecutors say Arochi kidnapped Morris with plans to sexually assault her, after another friend turned him down.
That friend testified Thursday, saying that Arochi was mad when she wouldn't lie down on the couch with him at a party with friends. He left with Morris shortly after that.

The friend also said she asked Arochi what happened later and that he didn't remember because he was drunk.
Two friends also testified that they saw no injuries on his hands and arms that night, though the defense challenged whether they could be sure of that.

Arochi did have cuts the next day – the first day Morris was missing. He said he'd gotten in a fight.
The trial resumes again Friday morning at 8:30 a.m.

Surveillance Video Played, Friends Testify About Night Christina Morris Went Missing

By Alice Barr

The third day of the trial of Enrique Arochi, accused of kidnapping a Plano woman, began Friday morning.

Christina Morris was last seen leaving the Shops of Legacy in Plano August of 2014. Surveillance video captured her and Arochi walking into a parking garage.

Prosecutors on Friday continued calling all the friends who were with Morris and Arochi the night Morris went missing, including Morris' close friend Steven Nickerson, who was the last person to talk her on the phone before she disappeared.

Nickerson testified that Morris was upset when she received a text message from her boyfriend, Hunter Foster, with whom she had been fighting. Nickerson said he tried to convince Morris not to leave, but she refused.

Arochi decided to leave too and walked out with Morris. Nickerson testified, as others have, that Morris would never walk alone after dark.
Nickerson said he called Morris to ensure she made it to her car. She didn't answer, but called right back to say she was almost to her car and would call again when she got in. Nickerson said she never called back and every time he called her after that, her phone went straight to her voicemail.

Nickerson testified that he didn't hear any fear in Morris' voice when they spoke on the phone while she was walking with Arochi. The defense prompted him, saying he would have "flown on the wings of eagles to that parking garage" if he heard anything wrong in Morris' voice. Nickerson agreed.
Nickerson and other friends testified that they didn't notice anything unusual about Arochi's behavior the night Morris went missing. They also all said they don't remember seeing cuts on Arochi's hands, which were there the next day, or damage to his car, which also appeared the next day.

The jury heard more testimony about that damage to Arochi's car in the afternoon. Prosecutors played surveillance video that shows a dark Camaro leaving the Shops at Legacy Parking Garage.

An IT specialist with the Plano Police department testified there's an "anomaly" visible on the car that could be consistent with damage that was later discovered on Arochi's car. But he said the video quality was too poor to be sure.

It's also not clear if Morris is in that car as it pulls out of the garage.

 

Finally, Morris' ex-boyfriend Logan Prendergast testified about his breakup with Morris. He said it was difficult, partly because Morris very quickly started dating Hunter Foster, who had been Prendergast's best friend.

Prendergast said that he never saw Foster on the night in question. Several witnesses have testified that Foster texted Morris to tell her he was with Prendergrast, which upset her.

Boyfriend of missing woman pleads the fifth, declines to testify

Natalie Solis reports.
By: FOX4News.com Staff
POSTED:SEP 08 2016 01:21PM CDT
UPDATED:SEP 08 2016 07:02PM CDT

McKINNEY, Texas - A key witness in the Christina Morris kidnapping case pleaded the fifth on Thursday and declined to testify.

 

Although Morris’ boyfriend, Hunter Foster, was not out with her and her friends the night she went missing, he has figured prominently in the trial.

Both sides had hoped to question Foster on his whereabouts that night. The defense was particularly interested in asking about texts Morris had supposedly sent him about threatening messages she'd received. However, Foster pleaded the fifth.

Morris's friend, Taylor Barry, was also supposed to testify but pleaded the fifth as well.

A Plano police officer gave testimony about how he was the one who received the missing persons call regarding Morris and then found her car in a parking garage. But he said there was nothing suspicious about the car.

More key testimony came from one of Morris's close friends who lived in the apartment at the Shops at Legacy where they were all hanging out the night she disappeared. She testified Morris had not been drinking heavily to her knowledge and said Arochi did not exhibit any aggressive behavior toward anyone that night. So there was no reason to tell Morris not to walk with him to her car.

During opening statements, prosecutors showed surveillance video of Arochi and Morris walking together in that garage. They said Arochi was two hours late for work the next morning and was seen at a gas station cleaning out his trunk.

But the defense pointed out that the DNA evidence found in the trunk was not from blood evidence. Also, no evidence of blood, saliva or semen was ever found in the parking garage where Morris disappeared, according to police testimony.

Arochi’s lawyers are trying to raise doubt by floating other possible theories, including one that involves a suspicious green car in the garage, and showing the jury text messages between Morris and her boyfriend about drugs.

Several of Morris’ other friends took the stand. They all said she was afraid of the dark and didn’t like to be alone. One childhood friend described her as being “headstrong” and said she would not do something against her will and would never willingly climb into a trunk.

There’s been no sign of Morris since her disappearance.

If convicted, Arochi could be sentenced to up to life in prison.

Jurors find Enrique Arochi guilty in Christina Morris kidnapping after 17 hours of deliberations

Enrique Arochi was convicted Wednesday of the aggravated kidnapping two years ago of Christina Morris.

The jury of six men and six women reached a decision after 17 hours of deliberations over two days that included one juror falling ill and being replaced by an alternate, and a night sequestered in a hotel. Their decision was announced just before 7 p.m.

The sentencing phase of the trial will start at 8:30 a.m. Monday. Prosecutors said they have a full day of testimony to present. The defense may also call a few witnesses. Jurors will decide the punishment. Arochi, 26, faces up to life in prison. He is also eligible for parole.

District Judge Mark Rusch announced to the courtroom spectators before the verdict was read that they were to show no visible reaction. "This verdict will be respected," he said.

Arochi stared straight ahead as the verdict was announced, then glanced over at the jury when Rusch asked them to raise their hands if this was indeed their verdict.

After the judge recessed court, sobs broke out among members of the Morris family as they embraced in the rear of the courtroom. Several others, including veteran Plano detectives and members of Team Christina, also had tears in their eyes as they left the room.

 

Evidence in the case showed a surveillance video capturing Morris and Arochi walking into a parking garage together at Plano's Shops at Legacy at 3:55 a.m. Aug. 30, 2014. Three minutes later, Arochi's Camaro pulled out of the garage. Morris' Celica was found untouched in the garage three days later by Plano police after she was reported missing.

Morris, 23, hasn't been seen since.

Defense attorney Keith Gore said during closing arguments Tuesday that prosecutors hadn't proved their case beyond a reasonable doubt.

 "There's no evidence of what, when, where or how," Gore said, citing the largely circumstantial case.

But prosecutors told jurors Tuesday that the defense has tried to trick them with carefully worded statements. They pointed to cell tower data that put Arochi's phone and Morris' phone together near the Shops at Legacy an hour after the Camaro pulled out of the parking garage.

Robert Aguera, a cellphone forensic expert, testified for the defense that those pings from data use aren't reliable in determining cellphone location because records include data routing locations for the network. But Plano police Detective Aaron Benzick said that data use with multiple entries per session always ends with a connection with the cellphone, and that final entry logs the cell tower closest to the device's location.

"Those cellphone pings hurt the defendant so much that they tried to pay someone to distract you," prosecutor Zeke Fortenberry said.

Key to the state's case was Morris' DNA found on the mat in the Camaro's trunk and on the weatherstripping along the bottom edge of the trunk's opening.

Scientists from two different labs testified that the amount of DNA from Morris was too large to have come from the transfer of skin cells that happens, for example, when one person touches another person or comes in contact with an object someone else used. The DNA came from bodily fluids —either blood or saliva, Fortenberry said.


The defense's strategy of suggesting DNA contamination 45 different ways through witness questioning doesn't make it true, Fortenberry said.

He also pointed to a Post-It note recovered from the Arochi family's household trash that the prosecutor suggested was the defendant's "list of things you need to get rid of." Written in Spanish, the square of yellow paper listed black shirt (Arochi wore one the night Morris disappeared), texts from 8/29 through today, bank bills and cell bills.

"The only reasonable explanation for all the facts — the defendant is responsible for the disappearance of Christina Morris," Fortenberry said Tuesday.

Christina Morris Kidnapper Sentenced To Life In Prison
UPDATED | September 30, 2016 1:03 PM
September 30, 2016 10:20 AM

COLLIN COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – The man who kidnapped Christina Morris more than two years ago learned his fate today. Earlier this week Enrique Arochi waived his right to a jury sentencing and this morning Judge Mark Rusch handed down a punishment of life in prison.

Prosecutors started the sentencing hearing by asking Judge Rusch to sentence Arochi to life… and they got their wish.

There was a packed courtroom, consisting of several members of Morris’s family but no one publically there for Arochi, when the sentence was handed down.

During victim impact statements in the courtroom prior to sentencing, Morris’s mother, Jonni McElroy, said even though Arochi is headed to prison she is not done with the case. “I will be at every parole hearing. I will fight; again ‘til I take my last dying breath, to make sure that you do not see the light of day. You don’t deserve it. She did not deserve what happended to her.”

McElroy said she lost her job during the exhaustive search for her daughter. It was during that time she said, “If Christina could get away she would. Christina would find her way to me. That’s when I started losing hope.”

Also during victim impact statements, stepmother of Christina Morris, Anna Morris made an impassioned plea to Arochi. “Please I beg you, let me bring my daughter home. Let us bring Christina home,” she said through tears. “If there is anything left in you — in your soul — that has any care or compassion for anything or anyone, you will tell me where she is,” she continued.

“And if you choose not to, I don’t think there will ever be forgiveness for you in this life or the next one. Because that’s an evil that — just — you can’t fix. If you can live your life and not tell us where she is, you continue to torture everyone in this room. Are you that evil? Is there any man left in you?” Morris said before leaving the stand.

Before the sentence was handed down prosecutors also presented details from another case involving Arochi being accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old. Three detectives testified to establish that Arochi had a pattern of sexually deviant behavior and an interest in torture.

Christina Morris' kidnapper gets life in prison

By: FOX4News.com Staff
POSTED:SEP 30 2016 07:11AM CDT
UPDATED:SEP 30 2016 03:08PM CDT

McKINNEY, Texas - A judge handed down a life sentence for Christina Morris’ kidnapper Friday morning.

 

Arochi chose to be sentenced by the judge and not the jury that convicted him.

Before making a decision, the judge allowed prosecutors to bring up evidence from another case against Arochi. He’s accused of choking and hitting a 16-year-old girl while engaging in sexually deviant behavior with her.

Morris’ biological mother also testified about how her daughter was her miracle and that she beat cancer two years after her birth. Jonni McElroy broke down while talking about how she misses going skateboarding and shopping with her daughter, as well as hugging and kissing her.

Morris’ father also talked about how Arochi was the only one of his daughter’s friends who didn’t show up to search for her the day after she disappeared. He said he knew she was gone when police found DNA in the trunk of Arochi’s car.

“You need to do the right thing and tell me where my daughter is at,” Mark Morris told Arochi during the victim impact statements. “ I hope you rot in hell!”
