Rossana Delgado, 37, vanished in mid-April in DeKalb County, near Atlanta. Four days after she was reported missing, authorities found her body about 100 miles away in the community of Cherry Log, Georgia.
Officers found the body while checking a home around 7 a.m. on April 20.
On Friday, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced the arrest of Calvin Harvard, 28, who was allegedly in possession of Delgado’s vehicle. The red Ford Focus had been reported stolen.
Harvard is charged with tampering with evidence and theft by receiving stolen property.
Authorities say they are searching for four additional people believed to be tied to the case: Megan Alyssa Colone, 30, of Stone Mountain, Georgia; Juan Ayala-Rodriguez, 35, of Gainesville, Georgia; Oscar Manuel Garcia, 26, of Austell, Georgia; and Mario Alberto Barbosa-Juarez, 29, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Police have launched a nationwide manhunt to find the suspects, who may have fled Georgia.
Colone may be employing the alias of “Grace Beda” and could be with her children, WAGA-TV reports.
Investigators say Harvard also had two cars belonging to some of the additional suspects, a white Ford F-150 and white Buick Regal, WXIA-TV reports.
Authorities are combing through all of the vehicles to identify evidence that might be related to the case.
More charges are expected to be filed against Harvard. It is unclear whether he is the fifth suspect authorities had referenced last week when they sought to identify a man pictured in grainy surveillance images, according to WXIA-TV.
Delgado’s husband reported her missing after she failed to return home from working as a ride-hail driver.
To report information about the case or the location of Colone, Ayala-Rodriguez, Garcia, or Barbosa-Juarez, call the Georgia Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-597-TIPS (8477).
