    Details of Disappearance

    Palacios was last seen at Gregory K. Parks's home on Ward Boulevard on July 31, 2015. She has never been heard from again. A photo of Parks is posted below this case summary. He has an extensive criminal record with convictions ranging from manslaughter to attempted rape, and has been arrested over 100 times since 1983. Parks claimed Palacios spent the night at his home and the next day she left her vehicle at his home because she couldn't find her car keys. He said they'd known each other for four to five months and weren't close friends.

    Three weeks after Palacios disappeared, Parks was charged with first-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping in her case. He is awaiting trial. Investigators stated Palacios's body has not been found, but they found evidence at Parks's home, including DNA, that proved he had killed her.

    Palacios left behind a young daughter; her mother doesn't believe she would have abandoned the child. Foul play is suspected in her case due to the circumstances involved.
