Three suspects named in murder and kidnapping case
MISSION, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Mission police continue their search for three suspects wanted in connection to a cold case homicide and kidnapping.
Thanks to new information, investigators now have the identities of three men involved in a murder and kidnapping in December of 2012.
Jorge Ruiz, Eric Gomez Torres and Carlos de la Cerda Olvera are wanted on capital murder charges.
Until now, police only had aliases for the three men and therefore could not issue warrants, Sgt. Manny Casas, Mission Police, "It wasn't until just recently that Mission Police Department made a true confirmation with the help of other agencies, including Starr County as to who these men are, their names, their date of birth, where they live."
Police allege Ruiz shot a man 14 times while his wife watched, then all three men kidnapped another man and drove off.
Authorities eventually found the car with the victim but neither of the suspects.
