    Chavez resided with his roommate and relative, Gilberto Gonzales, in Tucson, Arizona in 1996. The men lived in an apartment in the 1800 block of Irvington Road. At the time they were both employed at a business on South Sixth Avenue.

Their residence was checked and the door to their apartment was discovered unlocked. The keys were inside the home and their vehicle was parked nearby. All of Gonzales and Chavez's personal belongings had been left behind. There was no evidence of a struggle inside the apartment. The disappearances are determined to be suspicious.
