New Website Launched In Elizabeth Salgado Case

PROVO, Utah — A new website has been launched in the Elizabeth Salgado case, compiling a detailed timeline of Elizabeth’s time in Provo. The goal is to gather tips from the public to create new leads for detectives.

KSL had a first look at the website — ElizabethSalgado.info — which went live Sunday.

As attorney Carlos Trujillo said, there is no detail too small.

New information has come to light since KSL aired an update on the case a few weeks ago.

“The authorities still don’t have a clear understanding of the life of Elizabeth, even five years later,” said Trujillo.

According to Trujillo, there is still a lot of time that is unaccounted for in her case.

Elizabeth Salgado flew into Utah on March 23, 2015, but her dreams of learning English were shattered after she disappeared a few weeks later, on April 16.

“It was a very little (amount of time) — we’re talking about 20-some odd days. She didn’t really know the language, she didn’t really have a big circle of friends or anything like that,” Trujillo said.

That small circle of contacts, according to the Salgado family’s attorney, may be the key to justice, and finding Elizabeth’s killer.

“The public has been helping a lot,” Trujillo said.

In fact, Trujillo said KSL viewers provided new details after the update aired.

“Because of her anniversary — through the interviews that we did a couple of weeks ago — they have reached out to us with new information that five years later, we did not have,” he said.

According to Trujillo, the new information had to do with people Elizabeth met that detectives were previously unaware of.

It’s why Trujillo said the website, with an hour-by-hour timeline of Elizabeth’s whereabouts, can create new leads for detectives.

“We want the roommates out there to call in and let us know when they knew that she was at home, even sleeping, when she was at home even having breakfast,” said Trujillo.

He said they’re looking for information from acquaintances at school, work, and church.

“We lived at the Branbury together, and we started talking and went to church together,” said Branden Leduc.

The Salgado family attorney said no tip is too small, even if someone only remembers spotting Elizabeth.

“It seems insignificant, however, from there we can deduct a whole lot of stuff,” Trujillo said.

Trujillo admitted five years is a long time to recall details, but he said something is better than nothing.

“It is imperative that we do not let more time go by because our minds and our memories are not going to remember any longer, so let’s just get on with it,” Trujillo said.

Trujillo said they’re working with detectives, who gave them the thumbs up for the website.

Information can be submitted on the website in English and Spanish.
