Houston Man Kills Girlfriend

Houston Man Kills Girlfriend; According to authorities, an altercation between a lover and his girlfriend resulted in the man’s shooting murder outside a residence in west Houston.

Officers were sent to the scene of a gunshot in the 2100 block of Hayes, near Briar Forest, on Sunday morning at about 9 a.m.

Doug Martell, a neighbor, told ABC13 that he heard crashes and pounding coming from the next-door house.

“You could hear what sounded like cabinets being slammed against one another. People are slamming up against things. Glass shattering, much as people hurl dishes, is a problem “Martell said himself.

According to Sgt. Adrian Lopez of the Houston Police Department’s Homicide Division, after the dispute, the guy departed but returned soon to discover that his girlfriend had locked him out.

Lopez said that the guy attempted to get in via a window, which he attempted to break through with his fist. According to authorities, this is when the lady pulled her firearm and bolted out the front door. Police stated after the death that they were looking for a dark-colored car that had been involved in the shooting, but they did not provide any information on a suspect at the time.

Deleon was taken into custody on Monday, January 17, according to Houston police, after investigators tracked down witnesses and information. According to court documents acquired by the Houston Chronicle, he was reportedly packing his belongings in preparation for a getaway from the region.

According to The Associated Press, Diamond’s mother, Anna Machado, said that her daughter was “always sobbing” for Deleon throughout their “on and off” relationship.

In tears, I walked up to the monument and said, ‘Baby, justice has been served to you.'” It hasn’t been completed yet. It hasn’t come to an end yet. “At the very least, we have a name,” Machado expressed himself.

A fundraiser held in Diamond’s name was held near the park where she was discovered dead on Saturday, Jan. 15, according to KTRK. More than 200 people attended the event.

Machado said that Deleon should be kept without bail since “he executed” her daughter, according to the Associated Press.

In a statement, the Houston Police Department expressed its profound sympathies to Ms. Alvarez’s family and said that it “looked forward to pursuing this matter through the courts as we sought justice on her behalf.”

On January 9, the couple exchanged text messages, with Deleon requesting that Alvarez not inform the other girl of their connection. “Don’t destroy this for me,” he said on multiple occasions in messages to her. 9:30 p.m. in a park in the 15400 block of Park Manor, Alvarez and Deleon planned to meet, and the girl’s sister told her not to go meet him.

“We made our way to the field. “I informed him that I would only speak with him on the field,” Alvarez said in a text message to her sister.

It was when the youngster was walking their dog “Peanut” that Alvarez’s family claimed they heard what they believed to be gunshots. Alvarez’s mother attempted to contact her, but she did not answer the phone. When the victim’s mother and stepfather went outside, they saw the dog alone, and they were concerned that something had gone wrong.

Upon looking throughout the area, the family discovered Alvarez unconscious in a field. Alvarez was found with 10 shell shells nearby, and the gunshot wounds looked to have occurred when the victim was laying on her back, according to the investigation.

Meanwhile, Deleon said that he and Alvarez were “kind of seeing each other” throughout the court session.

He said that the victim was stalking him and that he had not spoken to her since Jan. 8, when the incident occurred. Deleon allegedly admitted to officials that he had attempted to go to a convenience shop the night of the shooting but had turned back.

“He recently acquired a 9mm pistol,” according to prosecutors, although Deleon indicated that he had not had access to it since the New Year’s holiday.

A second girlfriend speaks out about suspected domestic abuse.

According to the girlfriend, there was an altercation during a Quinceanera. She told police that she had sent a text message to Alvarez on the day of the shooting about her connection with Deleon, to which he responded to. She also emailed screenshots of her chat with Alvarez to Deleon, who was impressed. Alvarez’s girlfriend said that he was abusive with her and that he pulled a pistol on her.

The response of Martell when asked what he did when he heard gunfire was, “I ducked on the floor because you never know where people may be firing,” he said.

Lopez said that the male is thought to be in his 30s and the lady to be in her 20s at the time of the incident. He said that she had been arrested for interrogation but that she would be released shortly.

No one could tell for certain what the couple was fighting over.

According to court documents, the boyfriend accused of shooting his 16-year-old girlfriend 22 times as she was walking her dog in a southwest Houston area is now out on bail, according to the authorities.

In connection with the shooting death of Diamond Alvarez on January 11, Frank Deleon Jr., 17, was brought into custody Monday and charged with murder. His bail was set at $250,000, but he was released from prison on Tuesday, according to court documents.

Investigators believe Deleon was romantically linked with Alvarez and another female, or that she was involved in a love triangle with them. Upon discovering the other connection, Alvarez and his girlfriend decided to get together in a park in the 15400 block of Park Manor at around 9 p.m. on Saturday.

Apparently, Alvarez’s family heard gunshots when she was outside walking the family dog, “Peanut,” according to her relatives. Her parents got anxious, and her mother attempted to contact her by phone but received no answer. When Alvarez’s mother and stepfather returned from the kitchen, they discovered Peanut alone. They were aware that something was amiss very immediately.

After investigating the surrounding area, they came upon Alvarez, who was laying in a field.

“I attempted CPR. I was unable to bring her back. “I did all I could to keep her alive,” the girl’s mother, Anna Machado, said.

According to the Houston Police Department, witnesses reported hearing many gunshots followed by the sound of tires screeching as a car departed the scene. At least two individuals first exited the car before returning to the vehicle and driving away. However, even though detectives have confirmed that those people were not engaged in the shooting, they are still interested in speaking with them.

“He was only upset with me because of my daughter.” The reason for the divorce wasn’t loved or a breakup at all; he was enraged at my kid,” Machado said.

Alvarez’s distraught family revealed to KPRC 2 that she was a sophomore at Madison High School who had received honors. The adolescent had aspirations of going to cosmetology school in the future.

“I adored everything about my daughter, and I have no regrets about anything she did. As the mother put it, “I am at peace since I gave her all of the kisses and all of the embraces.” “I’m going to have to be strong now.” “I’m not going to give up, this is not over.”

The matter will be heard by a grand jury, which will decide whether or not the lady will be charged.
