Following a week-long investigation, Sunnyvale detectives havemade an arrest in the case of a murdered woman whose body was found dumped in a garbage bag. The Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety (DPS) has identified the suspect as 47-year-old Feliciano Valencia-Santiago, a Santa Clara resident.

Detectives made the arrest at 7:50 p.m., Friday, June 10, as Valenica-Santiago was riding a bicycle in the area of El Camino and Halford in Santa Clara. During the past week, detectives tracked down numerous leads which led to obtaining sufficient evidence to make the arrest Friday night.

As a result of the investigation, it has been determined the murder occurred at a residence in the 800 block of Revere Drive in Sunnyvale. The house is unoccupied as a result of a major fire that occurred there in December 2010. Subsequent to Valencia-Santiago’s arrest, detectives conducted searches of both his residence and the residence on Revere Drive.During the investigation, DPS was assisted by the California Department of Justice Bureau’s Investigation Major Crimes Team. Valencia-Santiago was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for homicide, and the case is being submitted to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office.

Previously, the victim was identified as San Jose resident Maria Esther Orozco. She was found Sunday morning (June 5) in the 800 block of Ticonderoga in Sunnyvale.
