The Clark County Coroner's Office ruled Rio's death as a homicide stemming from asphyxia.

Shortly after her death, police were looking for the suspect who was later identified as Gonzalez.

Family members said the two were together in spurts for five years. They also said Gonzalez was abusive in the relationship.

Rios, who was five months pregnant at the time of her death, had a son and a girl with Gonzalez.
