When police responded to a report of a probable homicide last week, they discovered Elvia Lopez-Arroyo, a resident of Santa Rosa, dead inside her home in the 500 block of Pomo Trail, according to Santa Rosa police.

The police reported that they found many weapons inside the home, but they did not find the head of the decapitated victim at the site. Police did not identify the type of weapons discovered, instead stating that additional testing was required to identify the murder weapon.

According to police, investigators found that the victim’s 23-year-old grandson, Luis Gustavo Aroyo-Lopez, killed her on Thursday in a “targeted attack” and then fled the scene with her head.

Detectives found the 64-year-old’s head on the south bank of Santa Rosa Creek on Saturday night, close to the Prince Memorial Greenway in Santa Rosa.

The wanted guy was discovered by local police at the Transbay Transit Centre on Mission Street, leading to the 23-year-old’s arrest earlier on Saturday in San Francisco.

Aroyo-Lopez was charged with murder and breaking the terms of his post-release community supervision for a prior offence. He has a huge tattoo of the word “420” and a marijuana leaf on the left side of his head.

Aroyo-Lopez is still being held without being released on bond.

The 23-year-old has a serious criminal past that includes jail time for accusations of weapon possession and assault with a deadly weapon. The victim of the homicide incident had nothing to do with the charges.

According to authorities, he was just put on post-release community supervision after being freed from state jail.
