    Those robbers were ruthless! I'm so glad they didn't find the mom and toddler. But it's terribly sad for the doctor's family and friends. Sounds like he was a wonderful man.

    • Police found Dr. Jorge Mario Gonzalez shot to death and a ranch worker badly injured
    • Gonzalez's wife and toddler found unharmed; they reportedly hid in a closet


    (CNN) -- Four suspects are sought in connection with the shooting death over the weekend of a Houston, Texas, doctor, Austin County authorities said Monday.

    Sounds as if there's a whole lot more to this story than we know right now. The area is popular for "weekend ranchers" who live in the city and play rancher on the weekend in the country. Most thieves would have a much easier time in breaking into a home on week days, as opposed to weekends when the owners are there. Would hate to think that the doctor was their sole target, as opposed to "just" a burglary.

    Or, perhaps the doctor and his wife startled the burglars when they arrived, but then things got way out of hand?

    Just speculating blindly here, since not much info is being released.

    Alot of people posting on various articles aren't buying this story. They mostly agree that it's too miraculous that the wife was unharmed and wonder how she was able to get away from 4 armed men and make her way to a closet.

    I too agree that something is off with the wife and child hiding. As much as I would love to believe that these guys just didn't bother them because she was with the child, we all see way to many stories on here where that is not the case.

    I am truly sad for the family and friends that this man has left behind. No one has anything bad to say about him, even in light of other's accusing the wife and that's something you don't typically see.

    I will pray every night that I am wrong, that this was just a robbery gone wrong, and that peace will envelope his family and friends and they will have enough strength to carry on in this sad event

    Snipped from February 2008 Methodist Hospital Newsletter:

    "When Mario is not working, he enjoys spending time racing sports cars and working on his ranch. He and his wife Charleen Chuke (Charleen Taniel Chuke Gonzalez) are also the proud parents of a new baby boy, Mario Raphael Gonzalez. Mario Raphael is the godson of Dr. Rafael Espada, Vice President of Guatemala."

    Police seek suspects in Texas doctor's slaying



    BELLVILLE, Texas (AP) -- Police are searching for four suspects in connection with the weekend shooting death of a suburban Houston doctor.

    Authorities said suspects in two vehicles, a white Ford F-150 pickup truck and a red Acura or Honda sedan, got past road blocks as they fled the scene, said Lisa Block of the Texas Department of Public Safety.

    On Saturday, 56-year-old Dr. Jorge Mario Gonzalez was shot to death as he was arriving at his 30-acre ranch in Bellville, 60 miles northwest of Houston. Gonzalez was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Block said the suspects were at the home when they attacked Gonzalez's family. Ranch hand Noel Galvan was also wounded but is in fair condition at a local hospital, said Sgt. Paul Faircloth of the Austin County sheriff's office.

    Hope they catch these guys soon. No report yet on whether or not anything was stolen from the house.

    Are the vehicle pics above THE actual vehicles involved in the crime? If so, that's quite a stroke of luck for LE.
    I agree something certainly is fishy here with the wife and kid being able to get into the house and hide. This is just the kind of thing LE figures out and then it becomes an episode of 48hrs mystery, Dateline, American Justice and Forensic Files.

    Yes, those are the actual vehicles, according to one of the articles.
