After a day-long search, authorities have found the man wanted in the beating death of his father-in-law, a son-in-law now facing murder charges.
After a warrant for his arrest was issued, U.S. Marshals were able to track Lucio Garcia-Navarro at a local hotel in Brownsville. The suspect is accused of beating his 56-year-old father-in-law to death at his residence on Michigan St. in Laguna Heights.
Investigators from Cameron County sheriff’s department say an argument between Jose Antonio Martinez-Perez and his son-in-law could’ve been the root of the homicide that took place early Wednesday morning.
Garcia-Navarro has had his brush with the law including being deported to Mexico and now after finding blood stains on clothing found in the hotel room, investigators say there is enough proof to charge him with this crime.
For now the sheriff’s department will continue looking for more clues that will help explain this brutal murder.
Sheriff Lucio adds he won’t rule out the possibility of future arrests linked to this case.
