Man wanted for September murder in custody
HIDALGO COUNTY, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — New details have been released involving the suspect wanted for allegedly murdering a man back in September.
Investigators determined Everett James Morris was the prime suspect for the murder of 51-year-old Jorge Olivarez last month. Olivarez reportedly died from blunt force trauma to the head. His body was discovered at the intersection south of Military Hwy and Cesar Chavez Road.
Morris was reportedly in Belize and was found with the assistance of U.S. Marshals, Interpol, and Belize government investigators. Morris agreed to turn himself in to the U.S. Embassy in Belize. He was flown to Houston a few days ago and is expected to arrive in the Valley tonight.
He will face a judge tomorrow in Hidalgo County where he will be formally charged.
