A Texas man, who has been charged with murder and tampering with evidence in connection to the disappearance of 24-year-old Felicia Johnson, allegedly had a number of suspicious Google searches, including “Can bleach destroy DNA?,” “how to delete your history completely,” and “how to kill without getting caught.” 

Chukwuebuka Nwobodo, 28, was arrested on May 13 and questioned by authorities before he was released, per Law & Crime. A spokesperson for the Houston Police Department said officers didn’t have enough evidence at the time to charge Nwobodo. 

Johnson allegedly left the Intercontinental Hotel in Houston’s Medical Center in the early morning hours of April 16 to ride in an Uber ordered for her, but Nwobodo wound up picking her up and taking her to his apartment instead. Authorities say Nwobodo withdrew $500 presumably for Johnson’s services. According to KHOU, he received treatment for an injury to his right hand on the morning of April 16. He claimed to have cut himself while opening boxes. 

On April 16 and 17, Nwobodo was spotted on surveillance video at Walmart and Home Depot purchasing trash bags, a flashlight, towels, and a mechanical saw with a bandaged right hand. Investigators were able to access his Google searches which showed on April 20, Nwobodo looked up “Can bleach destroy DNA?” and “does vinegar destroy blood dna.” The next day, he searched for the “most forested part of Houston.” 

The following week, Nwobodo searched “how to delete your history completely” and “15 Cheapest Places To Live In the World: $1,000/Month.” It was around this time that Johnson’s blood-covered phone was recovered on the side of the road at Bear Creek Park by a private investigator hired by her family. A purse which allegedly belonged to Johnson was also found nearby. 

Nwobodo was not only arrested on May 13, but his apartment was searched. Investigators saw blood stains throughout the residence and were able to match the DNA to Johnson, but her body was nowhere to be found. Authorities seized Nwobodo’s phone and noticed three photos of dead people and “a photograph of a deceased dismembered female.” 

The Houston Police Department is asking for people who have information regarding Nwobodo’s whereabouts to contact them at their Homicide Division at (713) 308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-8477.
