Manteca Police have made a step in solving the murder of 22-year-old Kelly Marelich, the girl found dead in a dumpster on South Main Street.
Police say surveillance video from above the dumpster and a tip led them to serve a search warrant Wednesday at Pacific Express Inn off of Moffat Boulevard.
They believe Marelich was there when she died, then put in the dumpster afterwards.
Police are also looking into someone she knew, they do not believe it was a random person who killed her.
If you have any information that could help police solve this case, you are asked to call them at (209) 456-8210 or (209) 823-4636.
