It’s been more than two months since the body of Connecticut mother Christine Holloway was found beaten to death in her home. This week, police broke new ground on the case.

“Today at approximately 11:30a.m., Jose Morales was charged with tampering with evidence and the murder of Christine Holloway,” stated Lieutenant Patrick Lynch.

43-year-old Jose Morales was a prime suspect in Holloway’s murder. He’s the father of their young daughter Vanessa, who’s been missing since Holloway was found dead.

Ansonia police said Morales’ DNA was discovered under Holloway’s fingernails. Video surveillance also showed him donating clothes and toys, which had Holloway’s blood on them.

Morales claimed he had nothing to do with her death and doesn’t remember much from the weekend Holloway was killed because he was high on PCP. However, police have said he keeps changing his story.

With Morales in custody, authorities are focusing on the search for baby Vanessa, who they believe is still alive in Connecticut.

“I’m just so worried about the little girl, she’s still missing,” said one local. “It’s really sad…I hope they find her.”

Ansonia police are urging anyone with information on Vanessa’s whereabouts to contact them immediately.

Morales remains behind bars and is being held on $5 million bond. He’s due back in court later this month.
