EL PASO — Luis Javier Solis-Gonzalez has been charged with capital murder after police found three bodies inside of an east El Paso townhome yesterday morning.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers say he turned himself in today at the Paso del Notre bridge.
Police identified the three victims killed inside the East El Paso home. They were identified as 34-year-old Marysol Saldivar, her daughter 13-year-old Cassaundra Holt and Saldivar's boyfriend 42-year-old Eric DeSantiago.
Police have not been able to confirm when exactly the murder happened or how the victims were killed.
They said they went to the home Thursday morning to check on the family and that's when they found the bodies with obvious signs they had been murdered.
"It was obvious this was not a natural death and that it was a crime of violence," Mears said.
Police believe Solis-Gonzalez fled in Saldivar's truck after the crime. They said after several hours the truck was recovered in Juarez by Mexican police.
Eric DeSantiago's sister, Betty Aguilar can't explain why someone would want to hurt her younger brother.
"He was a very caring loving man, and I just cant think of anything he could have done to deserve what happened to him," Aguilar said.
Aguilar said her brother was a very loving person. She remembered the last time she talked with Eric, they were supposed to meet at church Thursday night.
"The last thing I remember him saying was how many people will be at church tonight, because I would like to get doughnuts for everybody."
Aguilar said thats the kind of man her brother was. Always very loving and caring, and there for others.
She said it will be difficult to say goodbye, but she is very grateful for the 42 years she had him as brother.
"I wish I could have had him much longer, but I'm just very thankful to god that he allowed me to have him as my brother and of course we are going to miss him very very much," Aguilar said.
