Suspect Arrested Six Years After Mysterious Slayings of Two LA Women

A man suspected of killing two women in Lincoln Heights and dumping their bodies by area freeways six years ago has been arrested, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Geovanni Borjas, 32, was arrested on suspicion of murder on Thursday by the LAPD’s elite Robbery Homicide Division and tactical Metropolitan Division officers. Borjas, who was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday afternoon, has been charged with two counts of murder, two counts of rape and one count of kidnapping, according to court records.

Borjas, of Pico Rivera, is suspected in the slayings of 17-year-old Michelle Lozano and 22-year-old Bree’Anna Guzman.

Lozano’s body was found April 26, 2011, near the southbound 5 Freeway at State Street and Cesar Chavez Avenue in Boyle Heights. A homeless person called police after finding the girl’s nude body in a broken container in the brush.

Investigators determined that Lozano’s body had been wrapped in plastic bags and stuffed in the plastic container. Afterward, the container was dumped over a concrete barrier along the freeway. When it hit the ground, the container broke open and spilled Lozano’s body into the shrubs.

Guzman vanished the day after Christmas 2011. Her body was found a month later on the 2 Freeway onramp near Riverside Drive in Echo Park, according to the LAPD.

In 2014, LAPD investigators said they determined the killings were related and announced two $50,000 rewards for information leading to an arrest.

On Tuesday, a law enforcement source told The Times that investigators think Borjas knew the victims. Booking records listed Borjas’ occupation as a “medical biller” and said he lived in Torrance. However, public records show that Borjas previously lived in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood.

In 2014, a judge granted Borjas’ ex-girlfriend a three-year domestic violence restraining order against him. The woman alleged in court documents that the 6-foot-1, 265-pound Borjas was physically abusive to her throughout their two-and-a-half year relationship and that he had broken her nose, choked her and pushed her down the stairs, among other acts.

The restraining order prohibits Borjas from coming within 100 yards of the woman, her home or workplace.
