Felicia Johnson’s missing person case has turned into a homicide investigation.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Chukwuebuka Nwobodo, 28, who is still at large.

Kevin Johnson said his 24-year-old daughter went missing after traveling to Houston from California on April 13 to apply for a job at Cover Girls gentlemen’s club.

Police say Johnson went missing from the InterContinental Houston-Medical Center hotel in the 6700 block of Main Street on April 16.

The investigating revealed Johnson left the hotel in a vehicle. Nwobodo reportedly picked up Johnson from an apartment complex at 3233 Windchase Blvd and he took her to his apartment at 14935 S. Richmond Ave.

Police said evidence indicates Nwobodo killed Johnson in his apartment before disposing of her body at an unknown location. Johnson’s body has not been found.

Family members found Johnson’s cell phone, covered in blood, off the roadway in Bear Creek Pioneers Park near Highway 6 and Clay Road.

It’s believed Nwobodo disposed of Johnson’s personal belongings in the park.

An attorney for the Cover Girls strip club owner denied reports that she applied for a job there. Cover Girls’ attorney Casey Wallace said there is no evidence that Felicia applied for a job that night.

Wallace said club employees who worked that night don’t recall seeing her there.

Police ask anyone with information on Nwobodo’s whereabouts to contact HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-2477 (TIPS).
