Mountain Home, Ark. — Christina Scroggin, 25, of rural Mountain Home, is due back in court Thursday, April 11, charged with the murder of 24-year-old Raul Sugura Turietta. According to police probable cause statements, Turietta was found dead in the trunk of a car driven by Scroggins on April 2.
Scroggin had driven the car to the home of Henry Hodges, who called 911 when she appeared at his home early that morning allegedly stating that she thought she had killed someone and he was in the trunk of her car. Also at the residence was Scroggin’s ex-husband Allen David Scroggin. Hodges was the father of her best friend.
Police said they found Turietta on his stomach in the trunk of the car with his head covered with black plastic. They also found a plastic bag with three spent cartridges and two live ones. There were used Clorox handiwipes also found in the vehicle police said. Also in the bag was a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson pistol and clothing.
Once the body was found, Scroggin refused to answer questions about the incident pending seeing an attorney. Police said Scroggin was Mirandized.
The body was sent to the Arkansas Crime Lab in Little Rock, where it was determined that Turietta died of three gunshot wounds, two to the head and one in the chest.
