Jasmen Gonzales, 10, Was Stabbed to Death While On a Family Vacation

CARROLLTON, Texas - The Dallas County Medical Examiner determined that a 10-year-old girl who was abducted and found dead over the weekend died of a stab wound to the chest.

At the same time, Carrollton police are interviewing a person of interest in the homicide of 10-year-old Jasmen Gonzales.

Law enforcement officers found the girl's body Sunday afternoon, about 15 hours after she was reported missing. According to a police affidavit, there was no shirt on the body, and her pants and underwear were pulled down.

Police initally told FOX 4 on Sunday that there was no visible sign of trauma to her body.

Gonzalez and her parents had come down to Carrollton from Oklahoma City to visit relatives. Police say the family was staying in an apartment on Walnut Street, and on Saturday about a dozen people attended a party there.

But Jasmen disappeared. At first, detectives thought the girl may have wandered off in her sleep, or gotten lost in an unfamiliar neighborhood. Later, police determined she had been abducted.

Jasmen's body was found just a few blocks from where she had been staying.

On Monday, police revealed they were questioning a man who was at the party on Saturday, 23-year-old Jose Concepcion Sifuentes.

They have not yet named him as an official suspect. Sifuentes is being detained on an immigration hold.
