In Weslaco, Police now have a suspect in the murder of 26-year old, Donna Bocanegra.
In late-June, someone gunned her down in her home...
Weslaco Police say, surveillance lead them to a 19-year old Hispanic suspect.
That man was found in Alamo around 4:15 today, on Ridge and Tower Roads.
Police believe the 19-year old, murdered Donna Bocanegra inside her kitchen inside this home on Westgate and 6th Streets.
Police say, her mother was also shot, but survived.
Tonight, we went back to the neighborhood, where the murder happened, and as you can see, crime taps still surrounds the home.
