Dallas, TX – One man is arrested believed to be responsible for killing the 22-year-old Abigail Saldaña of Dallas, police say.
According to the authorities, the victim was allegedly shot while she was driving her vehicle and she crashed into a sign on Amon Carter Boulevard at Highway 183 in Fort Worth.
The main suspect in the case believed to be responsible for her deaths was arrested on Thursday.
The suspect was identified as the 54-year-old Stanley Frank Szeliga and he was charged with murder.
It remains unclear if the victim knew him.
Victim’s mother said to the officer that her daughter found a tracking device on her car just few weeks ago and she was afraid that someone was following her.
“I had told her to go to the police and report it. I believe that she did report that,” the mother said.
Police took the tracking device as evidence and tied the suspect to it.
“I don’t know the connection between those two, but apparently he had been following her,” the mother added.
Records show Szeliga has a recent address in Irving and a prior criminal history in California that includes domestic violence. Police have not yet said what evidence led them to him.
The victim moved to Dallas just two years ago from Wichita Falls and she left 5-year-old boy behind.
The suspect was held on a $250,000 bond.
Anyone who was driving near 183 and Amon Carter Blvd. around 8 p.m. on Tuesday night is asked to call Fort Worth police.
