Trial Date Set for Eduardo Avalos Escoto, Accused of Killing Woodcrest Woman in 2019

The judicial process advances for Eduardo Avalos Escoto, as a trial date of April 18 is confirmed for the 39-year-old man charged with the murder of his fiancée, Brandie Frazier, at her Woodcrest residence in 2019. The trial-setting conference, presided over by Riverside County Superior Court Judge John Molloy, culminated in both the prosecution and defense agreeing to proceed with trial proceedings in mid-April at the Riverside Hall of Justice.

Escoto stands accused of first-degree murder in connection with the tragic death of Frazier, whose body was discovered in the master bedroom of her home in the 17000 block of Palm Road. The circumstances surrounding the incident, including a potential motive, have not been disclosed publicly.

Following the discovery of Frazier’s body, Escoto became the prime suspect in the investigation, prompting a manhunt that spanned multiple years and jurisdictions. Despite initially fleeing to Mexico, Escoto was apprehended almost three years later in July 2022 at a gas station in Colorado City, Texas, with the assistance of U.S. Marshals and local law enforcement.

Escoto’s extradition to California followed shortly thereafter, leading to his detention without bail at the Byrd Detention Center in Murrieta. The trial proceedings represent a pivotal juncture in the pursuit of justice for Frazier and her loved ones, who have endured years of uncertainty and grief in the wake of her untimely passing.

While Escoto has no documented prior felony convictions in Riverside County, the upcoming trial will provide an opportunity for the prosecution to present evidence and argue its case before a jury. As the legal process unfolds, the community remains vigilant in seeking accountability and closure in the aftermath of this tragic event.
