Missing model found sealed in concrete after being 'injected with pool cleaner'

Esmeralda Gonzalez

Prestipino is accused of murder, first-degree abduction resulting in considerable bodily injury and conspiracy to commit murder, and is detained without bail.

She then walked toward Prestipino's address.

Court documents allege that in early June, Prestipino had asked a third party to assist him in loading a heavy wooden box filled with cement onto a U-Haul-type moving truck. Allegedly, when Prestipino untied her, she punched him in the face, which led to him trying to strangle her.

Christopher Prestipino, 45, became the prime suspect after allegedly blabbing to a friend while high on meth about "killing the missing girl", the documents state. He told police he'd found her southwest Las Vegas home with the lights left on and the front door unlocked.

Gonzales, who worked in the entertainment industry for adults and had more than 300,000 Instagram followers, disappeared on May 31. She was reported missing after her brother, who said he hadn't seen her in a week, went to her house and found the place "ransacked".

The prosecution also apparently identified another suspect - Cassandra Bascones, "also known as Cassandra Garrett, Cassandra Tran and Nikki Hart" - who is "believed to have participated in the killing" but hadn't been arrested yet.

"Christopher was not aware of Esmeralda's mental problems, and she started acting freakish and speaking in the devil's tongue", the witness reportedly added.

"He thought she was dead, but she woke up", she added; researchers think she was poisoned then. She had been arrested August 27 in an unrelated case.

After dumping the body, Prestipino fled to Belize, but was arrested on his return last Friday.

Prosecutors claimed Prestipino tied Gonzalez up to a "bedpost for an extended period of time" before allegedly punching the woman in the face, strangling her, and injecting her with pool cleaner.

She was being held at the Clark County Detention Center on an unrelated case when police questioned her about Gonzalez's disappearance in mid-September, according to a Metro Police arrest report.

Prestipino's girlfriend, Lisa Mort, 31, is accused of harboring, hiding or helping a felony offender, police said. Before his capture, Christopher Prestipino was heard telling Lisa Mort not to talk with anyone in taped jail phone calls, the sources report.
