SAN ANTONIO (NEWSnet/AP) — The dead bodies Texas investigators believe to have been a pregnant woman and her boyfriend were found with gunshot wounds, days after they were reported missing, police said Wednesday.

A medical examiner has yet to confirm that it was the bodies of Savanah Nicole Soto, 18, and Matthew Guerra, 22, that police found Tuesday in a car parked outside a San Antonio apartment complex.

Authorities so far have offered limited details about the case, which is being investigated as a capital-potential murder.

Soto was a week overdue to deliver her baby and was scheduled to have an induced labor at a hospital last Saturday night, her family told KENS-TV. But her mother said she got no answer Saturday afternoon, when she knocked on the door of Soto’s apartment in the suburb of Leon Valley.

The family spent Christmas night searching the area. On Monday, Leon Valley police issued a missing-person alert for Soto and later said Guerra also could not be found.

San Antonio Police Chief William P. McManus said the bodies found Tuesday were in a Kia Optima matching the description of one that belongs to Guerra. He said investigators believe them to be the missing couple, but could not say for sure without confirmation from the medical examiner.
