Alberto Medina and Eric Marquez were arrested over the weekend on suspicion of the murder of Andrea DelVesco, the 21-year-old UCLA student who was found dead in a fire last week. The fire was being investigated as a murder.
Marquez, a UCLA student, and Medina were both taken to Van Nuys jail. “Investigators examined forensic evidence and witness’s statements, which linked 22-year-old Alberto Medina and 22-year-old Eric Marquez to the murder of Ms. Delvesco,” the LAPD statement read.
Medina is being held without bail while Marquez’s bail was set at $1 million.
Hopefully this is an end to a sad story. Although Andrea had been charged with four felony counts of drug possession, her friends and family all agree that she was a good person with a kind heart. Authorities believe her murder is connected to the fact that Andrea was supposed to appear in court last Friday.
