“I have done nothing wrong to Deniece, only to my girlfriend,” he said.

In a police affadavit, Navarro said that he and Cornejo on their first date engaged in sexual relations, a claim that Cornejo later vehemently denied.

He elaborated, saying that he has no clue whether Cornejo and Lee have any kind of romantic relationship. 

He concluded by saying: “Don’t trust anyone easily. Know your real friends).”
