Family Of Christina Morris Waits As Police Identify Remains Found

March 08, 2018 - 8:20 am

 The investigation continues this morning in Anna, where crime scene investigators will be back at work after human remains were discovered in a wooded area yesterday.

While the discovery of what's left of a human body is disturbing, this potential crime scene is of particular interest because the area, near the intersection of Taylor Boulevard and Black Willow Trail, is one of the locations where police and volunteers previously searched for missing North Texan Christina Morris.

It was more than three years ago when Morris vanished from a parking garage at The Shops at Legacy in Plano. While police are firm, saying the remains have not yet been identified they did quickly alert Morris' family of the discovery.

An excavation crew clearing brush for a new housing development made the discovery. The worker who actually found the skeletal remains said that he also noticed what appeared to be women's clothing.

Morris was last seen alive with Enrique Arochi in 2014.  The two, who were former high school classmates, had been out partying with friends. Surveillance cameras captured video of Arochi and Morris walking together.

Three months after Morris disappeared police found DNA in the trunk of Arochi's car and arrested him. 

Arochi was charged with Aggravated Kidnapping and found guilty in 2016. He was sentenced to life in prison.

The Collin County Sheriff's Office and Plano police are assisting with the investigation.
