A California man with a "420" head tattoo was captured in San Francisco on Saturday morning after allegedly decapitating a female relative and likely fleeing with her head, authorities said.
Luis Aroyo-Lopez, 24, was taken into custody after being on the run since police in Santa Rosa discovered the headless body of a woman inside a home on Thursday, the Santa Rosa Police Department said. Police said no details about Aroyo-Lopez’s arrest were immediately available.
Police officers in Santa Rosa had responded around 3:40 p.m. Thursday to a home in the 500 block of Pomo Trail for a report of a possible homicide. Arriving officers found a woman decapitated inside the home and noted that her head was not found at the residence.
Investigators learned that Aroyo-Lopez, who resided in Santa Rosa, was a relative of the victim and is alleged to have killed her before fleeing the scene, according to police.
