Arrest Made in Homicide on N. Dwight Avenue

On Saturday, November 27, 2021, at approximately 6:18 p.m., Dallas Police officers responded to a 40/01 call where they were met by the witness.  The witness stated that she had received a phone call from the suspect, Edgar Ramirez, a 20-year-old Latin male, who had told her that he killed his ex-girlfriend, the 19-year-old Latin female victim.  The witness called 9-1-1 because she was concerned for the safety of the young lady.  Officers immediately went to the suspect’s apartment and detained him while they tried to discover a crime scene. 

It was determined that the victim was reported missing earlier on November 27, 2021, out of Balch Springs.  The suspect admitted to Homicide detectives that he killed the victim and led them to the victim’s body in a wooded area.  The suspect revealed to detectives that he had also taken the victim’s vehicle to another location in Dallas and burned the car.

This is an active and ongoing investigation.
