Circumstances

Abigail Estrada was last seen leaving her home in Harlingen, Texas on June 16, 2007. She has never been heard from again. She left her residence with her 16-year-old boyfriend, Ruben Torres Jr.. And she has never been heard from again. He later stated he dropped Abigail off at a street corner near her home.

Abigail’s loved ones did not believe she would have run away. They stated that even if she had, she would have worn something other than slippers and would have taken extra clothing. All of Abigail’s personal belongings were left behind when she vanished. Her parents knew she was seeing Ruben and had consented to their relationship, as had Ruben’s parents.

In August 2007, Torres was charged with capital murder in Abigail’s case. He was arrested when he made a court appearance for other, unrelated charges that were brought against him before Abigail went missing. Authorities stated Abigail was a witness in a juvenile felony case against Torres.

The murder charge was dropped for lack of evidence several months later. But Ruben remained incarcerated for other crimes until March 2009. In August 2015, eight years after his initial arrest, Ruben was charged with Abigail’s murder a second time.

Torres was charged as an adult. His trial began in January 2017, and his friend testified that Torres told them he killed Abigail because she had told the police about his involvement in a drive-by shooting. After only one day of testimony, he pleaded guilty to capital murder and was sentenced to 18 years in prison. With credit for time served, and time off for good behavior, he could be released in as little as ten years.

Abigail has never been located. But foul play is suspected in her disappearance due to the circumstances involved.
