GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Pedro Bravo is the last person to see Christian Aguilar. And a judge says he will stay in jail for his murder. After nine days, Christian's body is still missing, but in this case the state says they don't need it to make the charge. "I think there is a reasonable assumption that he is deceased," said Alachua County State Attorney, Bill Cervone.
Action News obtained a copy of the arrest report. In it investigators say they found Chirstian's backpack in Bravo's closet. Investigators also say they found blood in Bravo's SUV. "Although its ordinary that you start with the body and work the other way. That is not necessarily so," said Cervone.
"They talked to him for a long, long time. They are where they are. Since then he is maintaining his right to remain silence," said Ron Kozlowski.
Kozlowski is one of the attorney's representing Bravo. Even with all of the evidence found, he says there isn't enough probable cause for murder. "They interrogated him. He drove them around town. He showed them what they thought he knew," he said.
Bravo is on suicide watch and appeared before a judge wearing a protective vest. And his attorneys say they will be working immediately to reduce Bravo's bond. "There is pain on both sides of this case. And Mr. Bravo's parents are extremely distraught. They are extremely upset, and they are worried for their son. They are worried for Chris," said Kozlowski.
Despite the murder charge,family, friends and strangers continued their search for Christian Aguilar Saturday. And they still hope they can find him alive.
