Police stated Henry, along with 2 men, were all roomies and were shot after an on-going disagreement with Sanchez.

“I was amazed there was a homicide,” one next-door neighbor who asked to remain confidential stated. “I was not shocked police surrounded the house.”
Several next-door neighbors said your home has actually been an issue in the past.
“Most likely around eight to 10 months earlier, people began reoccuring from that home, all hours of the day and night,” the next-door neighbor said. “On bicycles, strolling, in various cars and trucks, reoccuring, we also discovered a lot of individuals, one day there was helicopters above your home.”

The district lawyer’s office said in the 2 years considering that the indictment, authorities did not believe there was enough evidence to prove Sanchez committed that crime beyond sensible doubt.
District Lawyer Steve Wolfson released a declaration concerning the case:
In early October 2014, police established possible cause to arrest – – and the District Attorney’s Office opted to charge – – Christine Sanchez for the murder of Bonnie Rice based upon evidence and presumptive forensic tests.
In mid-October 2014, after confirmatory forensic blood tests cannot connect Christine Sanchez to the murder, Sanchez was released from custody pending more examination.
In February 2015, after witnesses came forward with details relating to the murder of Bonnie Rice, the District Attorney’s Workplace started presenting evidence to the Grand Jury. At the conclusion of the presentation, the grand jury opted to indict Sanchez in July 2015.
In the two years since the indictment, further examination failed to establish any additional proof. After a complete evaluation of all the readily available proof, the District Lawyer’s Office did not think there was sufficient evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt. As such, constant with our commitment, we opted to dismiss the case willingly in June 2017.
The coroner did not right away launch the names of the two other victims.
