Gonzalez, Maddy’s neighbor, is expected in court later today to face a half-dozen felony charges, including murder with special circumstances, kidnapping with special circumstances, and four counts of sexual assault.

One of the assault counts mentions use of a deadly weapon as an aggravated circumstance, reported the station KRON4 .

A search of Adrian’s now-defunct Instagram account painted a portrait of a disturbed young man, possibly suffering from depression, who may have been harboring suicidal thoughts. 

In recent weeks, Gonzalez posted a series of cryptic messages hinting at his inner turmoil, according to reporting by the New York Times

'Wears all black to try and look powerful and hide the crippling anxiety,' he wrote of himself in one post. 'Towards the future and the constant worry that I’ll never find someone who loves me.'

The last message appeared on the page Monday, the day Maddy was discovered dead. The post included a video showing what appeared to be Gonzalez's fingers on a keyboard playing the song 'Mad World' by the band Tears for Fears.

The clip was accompanied by a post that included lyrics from the song’s refrain: 'The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I ever had.'

Mad World famously appeared on the soundtrack of the 2001 cult classic Donnie Darko, which tells the story of a troubled teenager who is tormented by visions of a giant rabbit that manipulates him into committing a series of crimes.

Since Gonzalez's arrest Monday, more information has emerged about his behavior during the search for Maddy. 

Neighbors said the 15-year-old, who was known in the area for his prowess with a yo-yo, showed unusual interest in the case and kept asking searchers about the missing girl.

Neighbor Setorro Garcia told San Jose Mercury said that Gonzalez seemed obsessed with Maddy's disappearance.

At one point, Garcia recalled that he told the teenager: 'Dude, you're the only one asking me.'

Other residents in the tight-knigt artist's community were taken aback by both the child's brutal murder and Adrian's arrest.

On Wednesday, Santa Cruz County District Attorney Jeffrey Rosell that Gonzalez will be charged as an adult with sexually assaulting and murdering the 8-year-old girl.

Sources say that the shy and somewhat reclusive teenager lured Maddy to his apartment when no one was home, restrained her with duct tape and raped her, after which he allegedly strangled the child and disposed of the body by dumping it in a garbage bin downstairs.

According to some reports, Maddy Middleton also suffered stab wounds during the attack. 

‘Justice demands the charges that we filed,’ Rosell said at a Wednesday morning news conference announcing the charges.  

Police said Middleton knew the teen who lured her to his family's apartment at the center, which offers affordable housing to artists, and killed her.

The teen, who acted alone, concealed her body inside a recycling container downstairs, according to police.

Gonzalez was arrested Monday night while watching detectives near the bin where Middleton's body was found, police said. It is believed that Maddy was likely killed before even being reported missing.

‘He's a very, very nice boy,’ 60-year-old Geoffrey Nelson, who lives on the same floor as the teen, told the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper. ‘He is known for being really great with the yo-yo.’

On his Instagram page, which has since been deleted, Gonzalez went by the user name ‘awkwardyoyoer.’

Gonzalez is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday and faces life in prison if convicted. 

As Gonzalez was being taken into custody Monday, his mother rushed at police officers in floods of tears, asking why her son was being hauled away in handcuffs.

Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel told reporters during a Tuesday press conference that Madyson 'was lured to the suspect's apartment willingly.'

'Additionally, we've determined that Maddy was murdered inside of the suspect's apartment,' he said.  

'She was then carried downstairs to the recycle bin, where she was concealed.'

The suspect acted alone 'and not in concert with anyone else.'

Her body was found at 7:55pm Monday.

 Vogel added that the girl's body was 'concealed in a way that wasn't obvious or readily apparent.'

Adrian Gonzalez was believed to have helped in the search for Maddy and was arrested around the same time the girl's body was found, according to Vogel. 

'It's my belief that she was killed before we got the phone call Sunday night,' Vogel said. The 911 call was placed at 6:08 p.m.

Terrance Kelly told the San Francisco Chronicle : 'From what I know, he's very well spoken and has a very kind manner. 'It's just a shocking situation altogether.'  

The suspect and Middleton were neighbors at the Tannery Arts complex, a public-private nonprofit project that includes 100 affordable loft apartments for artists and their families, a cafe and dance and art studios. 

Police had been using scent-specific K-9s from the Office of Emergency Services to hunt for Madyson, who was nicknamed Maddy.

She was last seen alive on surveillance cameras riding her white scooter at around 4pm at the Tannery's courtyard, where children - both residents and those taking art and dance classes - frequently play.

Her mother reported her missing around 6pm after realizing the young girl was gone around 5pm.

Madyson's parents met with investigators Sunday night and again Monday.

During an interview with KRON4 , Maddy's mother Laura Jordan, said: 'She was just happy as could be, riding around.' 

When asked if her little girl had 'done anything' like this before, Jordan said: 'Nothing. Never. She's never left Tannery property. She knows where she can and can't be here.

'She was in the courtyard where she was supposed to be. And that was the last we saw of her on surveillance.'

When asked how she was coping, Jordan said: 'I already fell apart. Now I'm in survival mode. I can't explain how difficult this is.' 

During the extensive search, police did a door-to-door at the complex and visited a homeless resource center and shelter across the street.

Other officers throughout the state used boats, helicopters, motorbikes and dogs to try and find the girl. 

The FBI and sheriffs from San Mateo and Santa Clara counties all took part.  

Dogs in the search picked up her scent at a beach but the trail went cold 

The arts complex, a former leather tannery, is managed by The John Stewart Company.

John Stewart, the company's chairman, had cooperated with authorities and turned the surveillance footage over to authorities Sunday night.

they need to investigate this, and stop trying him in the media. Strike one, the girl, is white, and he is hispanic, if he is mexican, the Repubs, will jump all over this.

Even as the most persecuted lied about race of people on this earth, we still believe every twisted distorted word that is printed by people whose only mission is tomget everyone to see things the way they do. NOTHING thye have said makes this boy a "good" suspect for this crime. However the "way" they are saying these things sure does. He wore all black - SO WHAT?! Did you see the picture, he is in a black t-shirt with some design (not demonic) on the front, with black pants. He still has his baby fat and like most of us with rather not look fat. Anyone remember how slimming and cool all ages and aizes think "black" clothes are? He wondered if he'd ever find love - SO WHAT?! Haven't you? Stop blowing with every wind that passes by please. The parents, someone from the homeless shelter across the street, someone by the beach they caught her scent on, anyone including this kid might have done it, but INVESTIGATE!

Condolences to the family. This is a very sad situation for all involved. As parents we must watch for signs of unstable mental behaviors in our choldren(and usually there are definitely signs) before tragedy happens that might have been prevented.

The devils angels are working overtime, even through the children. Even if he was unstable, his mother should have known, but sometimes the evil forces are so powerful, the only one who can intercept is God himself. My heavenly father. S.I.P child, karma is a b****
