  • Details of Disappearance
    Linda Reategui, originally from Peru, was last seen at her residence. Neighbors reported a disturbance in Reategui's apartment. The day after the disturbance, witnesses saw two
    middle-aged women arrive and clean the residence. Apartment officials, however, told detectives the women were not part of the usual cleaning crew. A glass
    company worker also arrived that day to fix a broken window in the unit.

    Reategui had been living with her boyfriend Juan Rafael Neciosup, 34 prior to her disappearance. Neciosup, also a Peruvian citizen, told the detectives he
    had broken off his relationship with Reategui and knew nothing of her plans except she intended to return to Peru. Three weeks later, Neciosup was reported

    Detectives would also like to question the father of Reategui's daughter. Police declined to identify him, but said he was a person of some importance in
    Peru. About 6 years before her disappearance the father of Reategui's daughter said he was taking her to Disneyland and never brought her back. After several
    years, Reategui learned her daughter was living in Houston with the father's sister. She got paperwork from Houstin stating that the sister wanted to adopt
    the girl. Reategui immediately came to Houston to fight the adoption and contacted the Peruvian consulate hoping for help in her legal battle.
