The mystery girl wants answers about a recent death in the woods of Oregon.
A man has been identified as the person found dead in a wooded area in July, and the cause of death has not been determined.
But the girl wants the police to answer the question: What happened to the man she was with?
The girl, a mystery caller from the town of Salem, Oregon, was last seen on July 14 by a man named Andrew Rios, according to the Salem Police Department.
Rios was last heard from by his mother, who called police.
The family says he had been living with them for about two years.
They have no idea what happened to Rios.
“I’m not sure if I’m going to make it back home because he’s not in a position to talk to me,” said the mystery caller, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
“He’s just not going to tell me anything.”
The girl has been called in to police several times since her disappearance, including by police twice on July 16.
Police were called to the home Rios shared with his mother on July 12 after they heard a woman screaming in the backyard.
Police said they searched the home and found the body of Rios’ wife, who had been shot twice.
He was later arrested.
“That’s where we started investigating and it was pretty quickly found that it was him,” said Salem Police Capt. Greg Caudle.
The body of the man was recovered the next day, but it was not identified until days later when the Oregon State Medical Examiner ruled the death a homicide.
Investigators are now asking for help to identify the other woman who was also found dead at the home.
Ritz was last known to have been in Salem on July 8.
“It’s not the end of the world,” said Caudelle.
“She’s still out there somewhere.
It’s not going anywhere.”
Rios has been charged with second-degree murder and is being held on $1 million bond.
“We need the public’s help,” Caudell said.
“This is the first of many cases that we’re going to come across.”
He says he’s grateful to the people of Salem for the help they’ve provided him.
“They’ve given me a place to call home,” Rios said.
The girl says the death of her friend is the only reason she wants to come forward.
“If it was my friend I’d be worried,” she said.
