Police Chase Down Suspect Carrying Decapitated Head

Residents in a local community have been left shaken and outraged by a recent horrific murder. On Saturday morning, November 4, 24-year-old Luis Aroyo-Lopez was apprehended by police at Transbay Terminal in San Francisco.

Police revealed that Aroyo-Lopez matched the description of a wanted homicide suspect from Santa Rosa. The victim’s identity or relation to her alleged killer has not yet been released.

The police department had been searching for Aroyo-Lopez after discovering a decapitated body of a female inside a home on Thursday. At this time, it is unknown if the victim’s head was located on him when he was apprehended by law enforcement.

Further investigation revealed that prior to his arrest, Aroyo-Lopez had recently been released from state prison where he served time for assault with a deadly weapon and weapons possession charges unrelated to this incident.

The Santa Rosa Police Department released this statement on the incident:

“On Thursday, November 2, 2023, at approximately 3:40 pm, Santa Rosa Police officers responded to the 2500-block of Pomo Trail, Santa Rosa, regarding a possible homicide. When officers arrived on scene, they located a deceased female inside of the residence. The adult female victim had been decapitated. The victim’s head was not located at the residence.

Detectives from SRPD Violent Crimes Investigations team assumed the investigation and began interviewing anyone who potentially had information about the incident. The initial investigation revealed Luis Gustavo Aroyo-Lopez, a 24-year-old resident of Santa Rosa and relative of the victim, killed the victim before leaving the scene. It is believed Aroyo-Lopez took the victim’s head with him when he left the residence and he may still be in possession of it.”

This horrific crime has sparked discussion about increasing punishment for violent criminals such as Aroyo-Lopez who have already committed multiple offenses before their most recent act of violence against an innocent woman in California.
