Unsealed Warrants Could Shed Light On Murder Of Marine Wife Brittany Killgore

A San Diego County judge ordered three search warrants to be unsealed in the Brittany Killgore murder case.

Numerous media outlets had asked the judge to unseal the warrants. One of those news organizations, the North County Times, reports that the warrants contain information about how Killgore died. The warrants also could shed light on the three people charged with killing her: Dorothy Grace Marie Maraglino, Louis Ray Perez, and Jessica Lynn Lopez.

The U-T San Diego reports the warrants will be unsealed on July 5th.

Prosecutors say Killgore, 22, first met Maraglino when she went to the suspect's Fallbrook home to inquire about an item for sale she saw posted online.

Days later, Maraglino contacted Killgore and persuaded her to accompany Perez, a Camp Pendleton Marine, on a dinner cruise in downtown San Diego. Killgore was then allegedly murdered in Maraglino's home, where both Perez and Lopez also lived.

Killgore, who was last seen alive April 13, was found dead in Riverside County on April 17.
