Details of Disappearance
Morris was last seen in Plano, Texas on August 30, 2014. She had spent the night out with friends at The Shops at Legacy, a popular shopping and dining center, and was last sighted on surveillance camera footage at 3:55 a.m. She was accompanied by a Enrique Arochi, her former classmate from Allen High School, at the time. The two didn't know each other very well, but they had mutual friends, and they were part of the same social group that night. A photo of Arochi is posted below this case summary. Morris has never been heard from again. Her family didn't realize she was missing until she didn't show up for work on September 2. Her silver Toyota Celica was found in the parking garage at The Shops at Legacy, in the 5700 block of Legacy Drive.
In December 2014, Arochi was charged with aggravated kidnapping in Morris's disappearance. In spite of his claims that he didn't know what happened to Morris and she had never been in his car, police found Morris's blood, hair and saliva inside the trunk. They believe Arochi told several lies to police which hindered the investigation. After her disappearance, he had several injuries, including bruises and what appeared to be a bite mark on his arm. Arochi told coworkers he'd been in a fight, but told police he'd gotten the injuries while changing the tire on his car.
Investigators believe that when Arochi drove out of the parking garage at The Shops at Legacy on August 30, Morris was locked in the trunk of his car; this is the only way she could have left the parking garage without being seen on the surveillance cameras. They theorize he abducted Morris after she rejected his sexual advances. Arochi was tried for aggravated kidnapping in September 2016. He maintained his innocence, but was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
Authorities think Morris is probably dead, and the investigation remains open because she has never been located.
