In August 2019, an informant told Officer Esteban Montenegro that Riser had paid for the separate 2017 killings of Saenz and Douglas.[4]

In March 2021, Montenegro presented evidence that Riser had been in the area where the murders were committed.[4]

Montenegro later admitted that Riser was in the area at a different time than when the murders were committed.[4]

On April 7, 2021, a judge dismissed the case against Riser for lack of probable cause.[5]
