Calvin Harvard, 28, of Covington, Newton County, Georgia, United States has been arrested. He was charged with tampering with evidence and theft by receiving stolen property in connection with the Rossana Delgado murder case.
A mother of two, Delgado went missing on April 16, 2021 and was last seen in DeKalb County, Georgia. According to her husband Yhony Castro, she did not return home from her job as a taxi driver for One Taxi Services in Gwinnett County, Georgia.
Castro said Delgado was at Plaza Fiesta off Buford Highway the last time he talked to her. When she did not come home, he tracked her cellphone to a residence near Decatur, DeKalb County.
“At that location, we found a mask with some blood,” WSB-TV quoted Castro as saying. “We called the police at that moment.”
At around 7:00 a.m. on April 20, 2021, Gilmer County Sheriff’s Office deputies were conducting a welfare check at a residence in Cherry Log, Gilmer County, Georgia when they found Delgado dead in a cabin. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation named four suspects namely Juan Ayala-Rodriguez, 35, of Gainesville, Hall County, Georgia, Megan Alyssa Colone, 30, of Stone Mountain, DeKalb County, Mario Alberto Barbosa-Juarez, 29, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and Oscar Manuel Garcia, 26, of Austell, Georgia.
The cabin belonged to Colone. Delgado died at the age of 37.
There is also a fifth suspect whose name has yet to be released. The GBI did not confirm if Harvard is the fifth suspect.
Investigators have found three vehicles related to the murder. The vehicles were Delgado’s red Ford Focus and a white Ford F-150 and white Buick Regal belonging to two of the five suspects, who are still at large.
Harvard allegedly has Delgado’s car, which had been reported stolen, as well as the two cars owned by the other suspects, according to investigators. He is expected to face additional charges.
