BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – A Louisiana man is accused of second-degree murder in the death of his wife, who vanished more than seven years ago.
The Advocate of Baton Rouge reports the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office filed an arrest warrant Thursday for 43-year-old Oscar Alberto Lozada. Investigators say they believe the Venezuela-native killed Sylviane Finck Lozada and fled to his home country with their 4-year-old daughter.
It says Sylviane Lozada was last heard from on July 5, 2011. It says her husband purchase two round trip tickets to Venezuela the next day. Lozada and the daughter were also caught on camera at a home improvement store that day buying concrete mix, 5-gallon buckets and plastic bins.
Sylviane Lozada’s body still hasn’t been found. It’s unclear what prompted the arrest warrant to be issued.
