Irving police are looking for Hector Matute, 33, in relation to a double homicide. Just before 9 p.m. on Friday, officers were alerted to a gunshot in the 2000 block of W Irving Blvd., where they discovered the two casualties.

Charged With Capital Murder

Following the discovery of two ladies shot to death in Irving on January 19, Hector Matute, 33, is wanted for capital murder.

Juana Medina Rodriguez, 55, passed away at the scene, according to Irving police, while Nayeli Bolanos Medina, 23, was rushed to a hospital where she later passed away from her wounds. Matute left the area before the police could arrive.

Although Matute knew the two victims, investigators have not yet established why he was shot. Regarding the shooting, police have issued a warrant for capital murder.

Killed By Neighbors

“The victim and suspect were acquainted, according to the preliminary investigation, but the motive is still unclear,” Irving Police Department spokesperson Delaney Brey stated. “We can confirm he has a passport, originally from Honduras.”

The little Irving apartment community’s neighbors told CBS News Texas that the murders are senseless and they are unable to understand it. Although authorities suspect the double killing is related to a specific conflict between the victims and Matute, they stated Medina’s child is not connected to Matute.

Flowers and candles, known as veladoras, are still left at the doorstep where Medina and her mother Juana Rodriguez were shot and killed by friends and neighbors.

A friend of the victims named Emily Carranza told CBS News Texas that there were no signs of danger or threats.
