Giselle Diwag-, 27, a Filipina was arrested in California on the strong suspicion that she murdered Michelle Le, 26, a nursing student who has been missing since May.
Surveillance video, cellular phone records and DNA samples form the basis why police named Esteban as a suspect.
Le disappeared on May 27 after she was seen at the Kaiser Permanente Hayward Medical Center, with her car found the morning after by police parked half a mile away. CCTV pictures in the parking area show Esteban was there at the time of Le’s disappearance.
Esteban killed Le at the parking garage, the police believed.
Police are convinced Esteban is involved in a love triangle with Le and the father of her young daughter, also a Filipino Scott Marasigan.
Esteban had told reporters in June that she hated Le much because of her closeness to Marasigan
Esteban told authorities she knew nothing of Le’s disappearance.
She’ll be arraigned Thursday. She’s kept at Sta. Rita jail without bail.
