Police are searching for Henry Leon, a 19-yo Oakland resident who is suspected of stabbing to death 15-yo Myrna Lizeth Umanzor, on Friday evening. Umanzor was a student at the San Leandro High School’s 9th Grade Campus. Police were called to the 1900 block of Pacific Ave. where they found Umanzor suffering from multiple stab wounds; she died short after. Leon is the father of her 9-month old baby. The relationship between the two seemed strained, as there are no mentions or photos of the victim in Leon’s Facebook page. Judging by the FB page, Leon seems to be quite fond of his daughter, however.
Leon was seen last night driving a 2004 Cadillac Escalade, dark blue in color with black rims, California license plate 5SBE608.
If you have any information, please call the SLPD: 510-577-3237 or the anonymous hotline at 510-577-3278.
Update: The San Leandro Patch has a story about the murder. Myrna Umanzor, Henry Leon and their baby daughter were in the living room of her house, while her brothers played soccer outside. At one point the brothers heard an argument and they looked through the window to see Leon stabbing their sister. They tried to get into the house, but the front door was locked from the inside. Leon was able to open the door and flee, as her father went in through the side door. Read the Patch story for more details and pictures.
