Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Isabel's estranged husband, Jesus, has been accused of her murder. Prosecutors believe her body will be found on a ranch near the Everglades, despite intense searches of that area having yielded no clues. Witnesses claim that Jesus had a large fire burning on his property the day Isabel disappeared. He also reportedly spread 10 truckloads of dirt and gravel on the farm before investigators searched it.
Informants claim that Jesus told them that he had strangled her and hit her with a baseball bat before bringing her body back to his farm. Witnesses place him at her home on the day of her disappearance, as do phone records.
A mistrial was declared in January 2006. Isabel's body has not been found.
