Man arrested in Louisiana cold case murder of wife 7 years ago

A man accused of killing his wife seven years ago was arrested in a cold case that has troubled authorities for years, Louisiana deputies said.

Sylviane Fink, a French and Spanish teacher in Brusly, Louisiana, disappeared in 2011. East Baton Rouge deputies said she was murdered by her husband, who fled to Venezuela with their 4-year-old daughter after her disappearance, Fox 44 Baton Rouge reports.

East Baton Rouge Sheriff Sid Gautreaux says Oscar Lozado, 43, was arrested in Mexico, where he moved a year ago, and has been charged with second-degree murder.

“I can tell you in law enforcement, there are no cold cases, especially when it comes to homicides,” Gautreaux said, according to sources.

Lozado was brought back to the U.S. from Mexico on Thursday, along with his daughter, Angelina, who is now 12.

Authorities suspect Lozado disposed of his wife’s body using bags of concrete, and plastic bags to dispose of his wife’s body, which has never been found.
