    It's been two months since Christina Morris was seen on surveillance video in the parking garage of the Shops at Legacy before she vanished.

    Enrique Arochi is the man seen in the video walking with her and likely the last person to see her. He said he knows Morris, 23, from high school but the night she vanished was the first time they had hung out together.

    "We partied. We went to the bars. We decided to get food after the bars. We went back to one of our friends' apartments, and after I was done eating, I said I wanted to go home, so she decided to go with me so she wouldn't walk alone," said Arochi.

    He said the pair walked together to their cars, but when he saw his car, he split off and headed towards his vehicle.

    "I never offered to walk her to her car. As soon as I saw my car, I went straight to it and left," Arochi said.

    Arochi and his family have been accused of not cooperating with police, however Arochi said police have interviewed him four times and have searched his car three times. He said during the third search, they kept his car for 11 days and just returned it to him three weeks ago.

    He adds that he and his family are receiving threats and that people are starting to see him as "a monster."

    "I am afraid for my life because of all the threats and people following me, telling me things like, 'Go back to Mexico or Honduras, wherever you're from.' They're even threatening my family," said Arochi.

    He said he had nothing to do with Morris's disappearance and didn't harm her. He said he wishes he knew what happened to his friend.

    Morris's family and friends held a candlelight vigil Thursday evening at Bishop Park, near the Shops at Legacy where Morris was last seen Aug. 30.
