The Murder of Courtney Phillips

Courtney Phillips was only 23 years-old when she was murdered on April 5th, 2015. She lived in San Antonio, Texas prior to her untimely death. Courtney's body was found on the afternoon of April 5th, lying face down on the floor of a house in the 200 block of Edge Avenue. She had suffered stab wounds to the neck. Police were immediately able to determine that Courtney's wounds were not self-inflicted. Her death was quickly classified as a murder.

Throughout the investigation, detectives learned that Courtney went to the house on Edge Avenue that day to meet up with 19-year-old Isaac Estrada. There are not many details available about how detectives gained this information, and initial reports stated that they did not know why Courtney and Isaac planned to meet up that day. Still, Isaac was immediately named as the prime suspect in the case. To this day, he remains the only suspect. However, investigators have been unable to locate him.

It is believed that Isaac has been hiding from police since the murder. Years have passed, and he has still not been apprehended. There is a possibility that he is still hiding out in the San Antonio area. Both police and Courtney's family members are hoping that anyone with information on Isaac's whereabouts will come forward and help solve the case.

If you have seen Isaac Estrada, or if you have any other information that could help solve Courtney's murder, please call 210-207-7401 to submit an anonymous tip. 
UPDATE (2022): 

More details have become available in Courtney's murder case. It is now being reported that Courtney was dropped off at the house on Edge Avenue that afternoon for a date with Isaac Estrada. Courtney's text messages revealed that the two had arranged to meet up at the residence--however, Isaac did not live there. In fact, the homeowners were out of town at the time the murder took place.

Once Isaac was identified as a suspect in Courtney's murder, it was revealed that he had been accused of a similar crime just three months earlier. In this instance, Isaac reportedly lured the victim to meet up with him under the pretext of a date, and then ended up robbing the victim.

Isaac still remains on the run. It is believed that he is in Mexico. In 2016, Isaac reportedly showed up on social media feeds linked to Guadalajara. In 2019, investigators received a tip that he was in Sabinas. Despite these tips, Isaac has still not been located. 
UPDATE (March 2023):
Isaac Estrada has been captured.

After 8 years on the run, Isaac was finally located by authorities in Eagle Pass, Texas. He was arrested and taken into custody on March 4th, 2023. Estrada is being charged with evading arrest, first-degree aggravated robbery and first-degree murder. The charges are currently pending.
