Three year’s later Suzie Escobedo’s case sparks plans for a protest

Escobedo's family continues shining a light on all the injustice they've experienced throughout the years with their local police department.

SEADRIFT, Texas – Three years ago, Suzie Escobedo went missing. She was last seen at her home.

Suzie’s parents and family members organized search parties. They’re still demanding answers in Suzie’s case.

They’re citing unfair treatment and not enough support from the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office.

Suzie’s parents hired a criminal justice attorney in Houston and her uncle, Jose Vallejo did a great amount of investigating on his own.

“We want to know where is Suzie and what happened? I’ve gone out of my way to do my job, with my niece Judy for what the police has failed to do,” Jose Vallejo said. “We have gone from house to house, door to door, we obtained results, evidence, videos, witnesses, everything. The law hasn’t done anything for us,” Vallejo continued explaining.

August first will mark three year’s Suzie went missing.

Her family is planning to have a protest to demonstrate their frustration with authorities.

They want to see more action in Suzie’s case.

“This year, that’s why we are going to do things right. We are going to denounce the authorities, because they haven’t done their job…They still have more things to do with the county and it just bothers me,” said Vallejo.

Unfortunately, this year the Escobedo family experienced another loss. Their son Arnaldo Rodriguez was really close to Suzie and was seeking help through mental health resources, after Suzie suddenly went missing.

But living life without any legitimate answers, he passed away last month. During his funeral visitation on Wednesday, June 2, Jose Vallejo gave an emotional and long speech about Arnaldo Rodriguez’s personal psychological journey after missing his sister Suzie.

“My nephew Arnaldo didn’t die from physical illness. He was seeing a therapist, he sought out professional help after Suzie disappeared, but it was not enough. Arnaldo wouldn’t eat and he didn’t even enjoy being around his family anymore. My nephew died from depression. He had good parents; they didn’t contribute to any of his mental health issues. All they did was support him, but none of this is any excuse for the disappearance of my niece.”

Despite all this time, this case remains a mystery for Suzie Escobedo’s family.

Even though, they have done their own investigation and have some speculation about who could have contributed to this.

Her family still plans to honor her memory and to keep this cause alive until they learn what happened to Suzie Escobedo?

Currently there are two Facebook pages (Find Suzie Escobedo and Justicia Para Suzie) giving recognition to the family’s inability in obtaining answers from their local authorities.
