The District Court of North Carolina issued his arrest warrant on November 2, 2016 under charges of first-degree murder. On February 10, 2017, the United States District Court issued a federal arrest warrant for his unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. He was 17 when the crime was committed.
On August 15, 2016, the victim’s red Dodge Caliber was found at a Phoenix, AZ bus station.
Two days later, Le’s body was discovered in a wooded area in Cabarrus County, NC. She had a bullet wound in her head.
According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, and evidence from text messages sent between the two, Le lent Castillo about $1,000. He planned to meet her and pay it back on August 9, 2016.
Instead, officials say, he had Le withdraw a large amount of money from an ATM. They allege he then drove her to a remote area outside Charlotte, shot her in the head, and disposed of her body in a ravine. Afterwards, he drove to Arizona in Le’s vehicle, with an accomplice believed to be his new girlfriend.
It took weeks before Le’s body was found and identified.
