Detectives review of citywide surveillance debunk his account of the events that night.

On the night of January 14, 2019, Aranda was with her friends enjoying a night out. One of her friends said that her location on Snapchat showed she was in Rubidoux.

Her family frantically searched for her, passing out flyers, organizing search parties, and through media interviews. Her remains have not yet been located, but surprisingly two arrests have been made for her murder.

Both Owen Skyler Shover, 18, and Gary Anthony Shover, 21, were arrested for the murder of Aranda. Neighbors of the Shover’s have reported that evidence has been dug out of their backyard during the preceding the arrests.
