Court documents detailed how one suspect, Jimmy Massey, who was already in the county jail on drug charges, told another inmate “he was involved in the homicide and described the fact that they cut the girl's arms and legs off.”
Police spoke with another girl who was reportedly with Saunders at the time of her murder.
That girl told investigators she “witnessed Ruiz physically beat Carina Saunders and then tie her up. That he drug her to an upstairs room and tied her to a small table… that he then cut off her left foot and then tried to cut off her right foot when the saw broke.”
That girl reportedly jumped out a window to escape.
