A body found near Lubbock, Texas, has been identified as that of a baby sitter seen in a motel surveillance video with a man charged in the case, authorities said Wednesday.
The medical examiner identified the remains found Monday about seven miles outside of the city as belonging to Elizabeth Ennen, 15. She had been strangled, Capt. Greg Stevens told CNN.
Stevens told reporters that Humberto Salinas Jr., 45, was being held on a $250,000 bond on an aggravated kidnapping charge. Police are talking with the district attorney about taking a murder charge to the grand jury, he said.
Elizabeth was reported missing after baby-sitting at a motel for Salinas, who was a friend of the Ennen family and the father of her boyfriend, police said.

Salinas had a history of violent crime dating back to 1986, but Elizabeth Ennen’s family knew nothing about his criminal past. Here’s news video from a local TV station:
