Circumstances

Senovia Medina was last seen on January 5, 2006. She was seen when she left her mother’s Austin, Texas home. She had left to run errands. Medina never returned and has never been heard from again.

Medina’s live-in boyfriend found her white 1995 Isuzo Rodeo SUV. It had the Texas license plate number X13HVJ several days after her disappearance. It was found abandoned behind a gas station near Memorial Drive and the 610 West Loop. This location is far from Medina’s home. It was not not along a route she would have normally taken. The SUV’s license plates were missing when it was located.

Medina’s live-in boyfriend is named Miguel Antonio Martinez. He is the father of the child she was carrying at the time of her disappearance. He was long considered a person of interest in her case. And he failed two polygraph tests. He also boxed up all her belongings within days of her disappearance.

Medina had reportedly planned to leave Martinez. He went to a real estate agent about finding another home. Martinez was arrested on a weapons charge in May 2011; he had several illegal handmade gun silencers in his home. He was subsequently charged with Medina’s murder.

In a statement to authorities, Martinez said he and Medina were at home. At the time, she accused him of infidelity and attacked him with a letter opener. And when he pushed her in self-defense, she hit her head against the shower. And she died in spite of his attempts at CPR. He said he got “confused” and panicked afterwards. Then he wrapped her body in a garbage bag and disposed of it in a rural area.

Martinez said he returned to the dump site three times. He sought to try to find the body and bury it. But he was unable to locate it. Authorities launched their own search for Medina’s body in the area Martinez indicated, but they found nothing.

In court, a judge refused to suppress Martinez’s confession. After that, he pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to twenty years in prison. He could have gotten a life sentence if convicted at trial. Martinez later tried to withdraw his guilty plea. But this was refused.

Medina was employed as a housekeeper at the time of her disappearance. She was born and raised in El Salvador and fled in 1988, during that country’s civil war. Foul play is suspected in her case due to the circumstances involved.

Appeal

Senovia Medina has been missing for 13 years. Her then-unborn baby has been missing for 13 years. At the time, she was planning to leave her then live-in boyfriend, the father of her baby she was carrying at the time. Miguel Antonio Martinez has ended one woman’s life and another before it could see the light of day. HE refuses to tell where Medina and the baby are, though he probably knows exactly where they are. Medina’s family and friends need solid answers.
