The search for a missing woman reached a tragic conclusion. Keylin Yolibeth Chavez-Dominguez, 20, is dead. Someone killed her. Police in Montgomery County, Maryland, said the Baltimore medical examiner’s office still has to officially determine the cause and manner of death, but officers are calling this a homicide.
Police announced early this month that Chavez-Dominquez was missing. Officers said her family and friends last saw her on Dec. 30 at about 6 p.m. in the 12300 block of Braxfield Court. This was her apartment.
