MISSION, Texas (KVEO) — The Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) has arrested a fourth suspect in the investigation of the death of a six-year-old girl in rural Mission.
Juan Roman Garcia Olaguez, 44, was arrested on Thursday and was given his charges Friday.
Olaguez is charged with capital murder of a person under 10 years old. He remains in jail with a $1.15 million bond. The $150,000 bond charge comes from a theft arrest warrant placed on Olaguez in 2017.
On February 23, deputies responded to South Mile 6 on La Homa Road and then East on Valencia Avenue.
Upon arrival, officials discovered a 6-year-old girl dead inside her residence. The victim suffered an apparent gunshot wound to the head.
“My understanding she was just sitting here at home watching the TV when this incident happened,” said Sheriff Guerra at the scene.
HCSO has identified and arrested three other suspects in the investigation, including Marco Antonio Reyes Chairez, 42, and Daniel Guzman Flores, 43, and William Garcia, 30.
Officials say the investigation is ongoing.
