An affidavit released Thursday reveals Pugh drove De La Cruz to the 800 block of South Foster Road on the night of March 28 and killed her. Around 5 a.m. the morning of March 29, an 18-wheeler spotted De La Cruz's body but was unable to turn his truck around so he called it intoa his supervisor. When the supervisor found her she was "trying to reach up for help," according to the affidavit.
Paramedics arrived after the supervisor called 911 but they were too late to save the victim and she was pronounced dead at 5:16 a.m. Investigators spoke with De La Cruz's family who said she left the night of March 28 with a man and woman in a red Nissan and she was staying at a Studio 6 Motel on Highway 90.

It was learned during the investigation that Pugh was renting the room where De La Cruz was staying and he also owned a red Nissan Altima. Investigators also found out Pugh was a documented gang member known by the name K.O. and a witness said Pugh owns a 9 mm pistol with extended magazines.
A warrant was issued for his arrest and he was arrested late Tuesday when police executed the warrant. A witness told police Pugh shot De La Cruz because she had stolen money from him. Pugh even said he was thinking about going back to where he left her to "pop her a couple more times."
