OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City Police Department is looking for a man who is suspected of murdering his girlfriend on Monday.

Police say 34-year-old Lorena Zamarripa's body was found near the intersection of N.W. 43rd and Shartel. She had extensive trauma to her body, which may have caused her death.

Investigators say that the victim had left her home near the 800 block of N.W. 43rd St. Sunday night with her ex-boyfriend, 32-year-old Gabriel Munoz, and she was not seen alive again. They believe Munoz killed Zamarripa and then fled the scene.

Police have obtained an arrest warrant for Munoz for the charge of first degree murder.

According to police,  Munoz drives a 1986 Honda Accord DX that is dark in color with an Oklahoma tag of 940-HHP . They say Munoz may have already fled the state and is possibly attempting to cross into Mexico via Texas or Arizona.

Anyone in the Oklahoma City area with information on the whereabouts of Munoz is encouraged to call 911 immediately. Those in Texas and Arizona should call (405)-231-2121.
