Jasmin Cigarroa’s husband, Jonathan Nuno Mijangos, was arrested on first-degree murder charges after his wife’s remains were discovered on Friday morning.
Jasmin, 24, was reported missing to the Denver Police Department on March 10. According to her brother, Mijangos said that his wife had gone out with her friends on Monday night but did not return home. However, Jasmin’s family does not believe that this is true. Family members also revealed to CBS Denver that Jasmin’s phone, keys and wallet were still in her room at the time of her disappearance.
“Her husband told us that Jasmin left around 7 pm with a friend and she never came back,” said Jasmin’s brother, Francisco Cigarroa. “We talked to her friend and she said she texted Jasmin but she never came down from her apartment.”
On Thursday of last week, investigators obtained a tip that led them to a rural area of Adams County near Denver. Although the search was called off due to darkness, authorities found what are believed to be Jasmin’s remains in an area of East 26th Avenue and Powhaton Road on Friday morning.
Mijangos, 23, was arrested on Friday afternoon after police confirmed that domestic violence appeared to have played a role in Jasmin’s homicide. The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner is still working to determine how Jasmin died.
