Deadly crash tied into homicide investigation


WESLACO, Texas – An attempted aggravated robbery is now a homicide investigation.

Authorities were initially investigating a major crash in Weslaco that claimed a man’s life, but that investigation has now turned into a homicide investigation.

Video has surfaced that shows, according to Weslaco Police, the victim of the deadly crash driving a white vehicle when he is approached by suspects in what appears to be a newer model black passenger car.

One of the suspects gets out of the vehicle and draws a weapon on the victim.

The victim fled away but police say he was unfortunately involved in a two-vehicle crash a short time later on Business 83 and Garza Ave. around noon. He died at the scene.
