Brothers Charged in Kidnapping and Murder of Victim
BROWNSVILLE — Leonardo Vasquez of San Benito and Carlos Vasquez of Mercedes were picked up earlier this week on murder charges. Court documents say Leonardo Vasquez was more or less in charge of planning the kidnapping and murder of Reyes Bocanegra in July. Surveillance video from the Mariscos Playa Azul restaurant, during the kidnapping, led investigators to the Vasquez brothers who are believed to be part of the group of suspects that entered and kidnapped Bocanerga. Less than an hour after the kidnapping Bocanegra was found shot to death in his own vehicle and authorities believe the motive for his death was drug related.
