TUCSON – A man was indicted Friday in connection to the murders of two young girls – Isabel Celis and Maribel Gonzales.

According to officials, Tucson detectives drove to Phoenix to read 36-year-old Christopher Clements his charges of Friday afternoon in connection to the two murders. Police say he is currently in custody and locked up in Maricopa County in connection to an unrelated burglary and fraud case.

The article goes on to state the following:

The remains of 6-year-old Isabel Celis were found in March 2017 near North Trico Road and West Avra Valley Road after she was reported missing from her home in April 2012. Police said authorities were advised in 2017 that Clements possibly had information connected to the disappearance of Celis.

The body of Maribel Gonzales was discovered in June 2014, also in Avra Valley. The 13-year-old was last seen heading to a friend’s house earlier that month.

According to the indictment, Clements was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts kidnapping a minor under 15, two counts of second-degree burglary, one count of theft by controlling stolen property, one count of trafficking in stolen property and 14 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Officials say Clements was found guilty of failing to register as a sex offender in the state of Florida. That same year, the 36-year-old was charged with violating a protective order against stalking and telephonic harassment in Oregon.

The article goes on to state the following:

Isabel disappeared from her bedroom under suspicious circumstances April 21, 2012. Over the years authorities worked through more than 2,200 leads, but the case went nowhere until now.

The case went cold for years until human remains were found in early 2017.

The case drew national media attention.
