The Dallas Police Department has arrested Oscar Sanchez Garcia on suspicion of murdering three women in the southwest of the city’s downtown area.

The 25-year-old Sanchez Garcia is expected to be charged with the murders of 60-year-old Kimberly Robinson, 25-year-old Cherish Gibson, and a third unidentified woman.

The remains of the three victims were discovered along the Trinity River floodplain. The murders all took place in the last few months.

At least two of the women are believed to be sex workers. A pathologist is hoping to identify the third victim in the coming days.

The Dallas PD has not yet revealed the evidence against Sanchez Garcia and has not given a motive for the murders. However, the cops noted a growing trend of violence against sex workers in the Texan city.

The remains of Robinson were discovered on April 22 in a grassy area under a train bridge near Santa Fe Avenue. On June 24, Gibson’s body was found a mere couple of hundred feet away, also dumped in a grassy area.

The body of the third unidentified woman was found roughly a mile away on Brazos Street on Saturday, July 15, at about 9 p.m.
