Boyfriend Of SF Woman Found Dead In Storage Area Charged With Murder

A San Francisco woman who was found dead in Pacifica in May after being reported missing months earlier was allegedly killed by her boyfriend, who made his initial appearance in court on Friday, San Mateo County prosecutors said today.

Albert Trejo, 49, of San Bruno, has been charged with murder for the killing of 36-year-old Cecilia Zamora, who was found in the storage area of an apartment complex with a single gunshot wound to the back of her head, according to the district attorney’s office.

Trejo did not enter a plea at his initial court hearing on Friday and will return to court on Sept. 16 for the continued arraignment, prosecutors said.

According to prosecutors, Zamora was last seen on the morning of Feb. 13 with Trejo at their home in San Bruno, where they lived with other people.

Trejo called another one of the residents and sounded like he was crying and made a comment about his gun going off, prosecutors said.

However, when the other residents arrived home, he was doing laundry and told them that he and Zamora had an argument and she left, prosecutors said.

The victim’s mother reported her missing a week later, leading to the eventual discovery of her body in Pacifica.

    This is a trajedy! What has life come to when people are so screwed up in the head they would take the life of a beautiful, kind, loving, mother and daughter to my best friend!!!! Everyone involved in this or who had knowledge of this horrific crime and withheld information from the authorities and family should be held accountable as well! There information could have expedited the discovery of her body or even saved her life!!! This cannot go unforgotten! A beautiful-Angel has been taken from her children, her mother, and her friends/family and so many people’s heart are broken forever because of this man who should not have been walking the streets had Parole done their job!!! He was not hard to find and had an outstanding warrant when he killed my niece!!!! May god be with you Cecilia and let him wrap his arms so tight around you; allowing you to feel the love in our hearts and tell you we all love and miss you! You are forever in our hearts, soul and mind! iTS NEVER GOODBYE, ITS “TIL WE MEET AGAIN…….*!~ I love you….

    Sounds like a big tragic mess. Sometimes people act in haste and in accord with their passions, but when they pay for what they’ve done they are given a lot of time to think about their actions.
