WESLACO, Texas – After nearly two weeks there is still no arrest in the homicide investigation of a Weslaco physician.

Dr. John Jesus Dominguez was killed in a fatal head on collision accident in the 500 block of east U.S. Business 83 after police said he fled a botched armed robbery attempt as he left his office. Local 23 News stopped by his office today where a small memorial has been setup.

A former patient of Dr. Dominguez, who did not want to go on camera, said he stopped by the memorial to see for himself if what he heard was true. The patient said that he knew the doctor for many years and that he was a good man.
