Suspect Charged With Murder Of Missing UF Student

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A teen already facing charges in the case of a missing fellow University of Florida student has now been charged with his murder.

Gainesville police reported Friday evening that they’ve charged 18-year-old Pedro Bravo with the murder of 18-year-old Christian Aguilar. Bravo had previously been arrested Monday on a third-degree felony charge of depriving a victim of medical treatment.

Police say Aguilar was last seen Sept. 20 at a Gainesville Best Buy store with Bravo. Police believe the two may have been fighting over a girl.

Bravo had purchased duct tape and shovel several days before Aguilar went missing, but police say they haven’t yet recovered the items.

Aguilar’s body is still missing. Authorities have been searching for more than a week with no results.

Jail records didn’t list an attorney for Bravo.
