Alora Benitez had last been seen 9 a.m. Wednesday in Torrance, California, and she may have been traveling in a 2013 white BMW with Nevada license plates labeled “MARIMAR,” according to the sheriff’s department.
The sheriff’s department suspects her mother and the man of murder after finding a body in the front seat of a white Audi parked in Carson, California, on Tuesday.
