Marylee Walker, 30, has been arrested and charged with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a crash, four years after 27-year-old Jessica Erausquin was found dead on the side of the road in Cocoa Beach, Florida, back in 2014.
On October 16, 2014, Eruasquin was dead found on Rose Street in Cocoa Beach and police said they were investigating her death as a traffic homicide. While medical examiners determined that Erausquin died of multiple areas of blunt force trauma to the head, her killer was never found.
Police said all of their leads had been exhausted until they interviewed a former acquaintance of Walker’s who provided them with information corroborated by witnesses.
Walker was arrested and charged on Tuesday, September 18.
According to Florida Today, the key information was discovered after private detectives hired by the Eruasquin’s family found that a boarding pass with Walker’s name on it had been discovered near to Jessica’s body.
