Irving Police Seek Hector Matute in Connection to Mother-Daughter Shooting Tragedy
Irving police search for Hector Matute, accused of killing Nayeli Bolaños Medina and her mother Juana Medina Rodriguez.
Irving police are actively searching for 33-year-old Hector Matute, also known as Hector Paguada, in connection to a tragic shooting that claimed the lives of 23-year-old Nayeli Bolaños Medina and her mother, 56-year-old Juana Medina Rodriguez, last Friday at the Park Springs apartments on West Irving Boulevard.
Family members of the victims reveal that Matute was known to one of the victims, but the motive for the shooting remains unclear. Matute, facing a warrant for capital murder, allegedly shot the mother and daughter just before 9 p.m. and has been on the run since.
Elvis Alberto Medina, the brother of Nayeli and son of Juana, is left in shock and disbelief. The 5-year-old son of Nayeli witnessed the tragic incident. Irving police are yet to determine the motive, only emphasizing that Matute was acquainted with the victims.
Friends of the victims have placed flowers and candles at the apartment’s front steps, expressing their grief and remembering Juana as a beautiful person. Elvis urges anyone with information about Matute’s whereabouts to contact the police, emphasizing the need for justice for his sister and mother.
The consulate of El Salvador in Dallas is assisting the family with funeral arrangements to bury the mother and daughter in their home country. Irving police caution the public against attempting to contact or apprehend Matute and urge anyone with information to call their local police department.
