MORENO VALLEY, Calif. (AP) – A man living in a Riverside County home that was searched by detectives investigating a teenager’s killing was a teacher’s aide at the victim’s school.

lazarustasby Police Search Home Of Ex Aide At Norma Lopezs School

The home of 25-year-old Lazarus Tasby was searched, but detectives would not say if it was related to the murder of Norma Lopez.

Authorities would not say if 25-year-old Lazarus Tasby was a suspect in the death of 17-year-old Norma Lopez in July.

They spent Tuesday at his family’s Moreno Valley home and impounded a green SUV similar to one seen speeding away from the area where Lopez was abducted.

An attorney for Tasby’s parents denied that anyone in the family is linked to the girl’s kidnapping and death.

School records confirm Tasby worked with disabled students at Valley View High School from March 2007 to November 2009.

Court records show he was arrested Oct. 29 on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute. He pleaded not guilty and the case is pending.
