Jennifer Samantha Puente, 18, is accused in the death of 15-year-old Moriah Gonzales, whose burned body was left on the side of the road in Ennis. Another suspect in the crime was arrested March 24.
Navarro County Crime Stoppers is now offering a $1,000 reward for her arrest and indictment. According to the Texas Rangers, who are assisting the Ennis Police Department in the investigation, Puente has ties to Grand Prairie, Arlington, Ennis, and has family in Corsicana and El Cenizo (near Laredo).

She has a distinctive tattoo on her right front shoulder area with an expletive, “Fu_ _ everybody” (in cursive) surrounded by stars; another of a pacifier on the bottom of her right arm; and “Baby John” tattooed on back of her neck.
Call 903-874-TIPS if you have information on Puente’s whereabouts, or call your local police.
