RALEIGH, NC – On December 19, police found the body of 26-year-old Emily Montgomery, near the 7300 block of ACC Blvd. The single mother had been missing since for more than three weeks.
Her family last spoke to her the night before Thanksgiving.
The News & Observer reported:
The next day, Montgomery texted a friend that she and her boyfriend were not getting along. One text message said that “She was going to kill Jose before he killed her.” Montgomery sent another text which said, “It is going to happen he is going to kill me first.”
On the same night, her mother received a text telling her Montgomery would be checking into detox. Her mother doubted Montgomery would make such a statement without more explanation, warrants said.
On December 9, police arrested Jose Carlos Jacome-Granizo, 29, who claimed that he had driven Montgomery to his mother's house for Thanksgiving dinner, but she did not want to go inside because her hair looked bad. He said when he returned to his vehicle, she was gone, according to police.
Police said that upon searching Jacome-Granizo's Jeep Wrangler, a large amount of blood was found in the front seat. GPS data also showed that Montgomery's cell phone was with the illegal alien long after he claims she left.
Montgomery's mother told detectives that Jacome-Granizo has a history of violence against her daughter.
Jacome-Granizo has been charged with first-degree murder, and is currently being held at the Wake County Jail without bond.
