Lisa Dykes

Lisa Dykes is one of three people accused of killing Marisela Botello, a 23-year-old Seattle woman who went missing in October 2020 while visiting Dallas. Botello had flown to Dallas from Seattle to visit a friend. The friend said she left his apartment on Oct. 4 to meet up with friends at a nightclub. She was last seen leaving a Deep Ellum bar early on Oct. 5, 2020. Her body was found five months later, on March 24, 2021, in a wooded area in Wilmer. Investigators said mobile phone records placed Botello at the same home as Dykes. Phone records also showed Dykes and Marano traveling south of Dallas, near Hutchins, to a densely wooded area near a concrete plant. When officials searched their residence, they found streaks of brown and red on the carpet, which had been cleaned. An analysis of DNA found on one of the carpets matched Botello's blood. Dykes was indicted in June 2021 by a Dallas County grand jury along with Nina Tamar Marano and Charles Anthony Beltran.
