Authorities Say Hotel Room Linked To Landfill Murder

Lubbock authorities investigating the murder of Summer Baldwin say they believe they have identified the crime scene.

Baldwin was the pregnant woman found last week inside a suitcase at the landfill. Rosendo Rodriguez III is charged with her murder. Investigators tracked his debit card to the Holiday Inn Civic Center, where traces of blood were found inside a hotel room. Police believe the DNA matches that of Baldwin.

Meanwhile, the District Attorney's Office is waiting for autopsy results to determine if they can seek the death penalty against Rodriguez.
