Luis Rodriguez is a Philadelphia native. Philadelphia police have identified the man accused of killing a 13-year-old girl earlier this year.
Officers found 13-year-old Alezuana Carter inside a home on the 1500 block of Overington Street suffering from a gunshot wound to the mouth on April 18, 2021, around 10:58 p.m. She was transported to an area hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.
He is 25 years old.
Alezuana Carter Murder
Carter had been missing since October 2020, when she was still 12, Fox 29 reported.
Thirteen-year-old Alezauna Carter, known as Libby, was found dead after being shot in her face on the 1500 block of Overington Street on April 18. Philadelphia police initially identified her as a 20-year-old woman.
“There’s nothing you can do as a parent to prepare you for something like this,” said her grandfather, William Orr. “We all live down South Philly and southwest, so I have no idea how she managed to find her way down to this neighborhood.”
Luis Rodriguez Arrested
Luis Rodriguez, 25, faces multiple charges, including murder, and is being held without bail, according to ABC 6.
An arrest affidavit quotes a witness who said Rodriguez ran from the scene of Carter’s shooting, saying, “I shot her, I shot her in the neck.” The same witness said that Rodriguez bragged about killing the girl on several other occasions.
Police said surveillance video captured Rodriguez entering the home in Philadelphia’s northeastern Frankford neighborhood before the shooting and leaving afterward.
“There’s nothing you can do as a parent to prepare you for something like this,” Carter’s grandfather, William Orr, told ABC 6 in May. “We all live down South Philly and southwest, so I have no idea how she managed to find her way down to this neighborhood.”
Orr said it’s believed Carter ran away with some friends. He said that it took police two weeks to identify her after the murder and notify the family.
