Man arrested in San Antonio for craigslist killing of missing Georgia man

Davis Rios

Back in May, I posted about the disappearance of 44-year-old Vicente Cruz, of Austell, Georgia. He went missing after he went to sell his truck on craigslist. His body was found on May the 22nd, which I was unaware of. That officially made the story a craigslist killing.

This past week, 34-year-old David Rios was arrested in San Antonio, Texas, and charged with Mr. Cruz’s murder. What hasn’t been made public yet is the cause of Mr. Cruz’s death and the motive behind the crime.

If you’re selling something on craigslist, even if it’s something as big as a truck, meet the buyer at your local police department. Most municipalities have safe zones at their police stations to facilitate classified transactions safely. If the seller says they can’t meet at the police station, then it’s not worth risking your life over a sale.
