    TX - Veronica Mercado, 26, & Linette Cano, 23 mos, Houston, 6 Nov 2015

    Sorry if this has been posted aready.
    Police are hunting a Texas man they say fatally shot his ex-girlfriend and her toddler before fleeing toward the Mexican border.

    Jonathan Figueroa, 23, was charged with capital murder after he allegedly burst into the home of his ex-girlfriend and began firing at her and her daughter on Friday.
    He shot Veronica Mercado and her 2 yr. old baby daughter Linette Cano. LE believes Figueroa is heading to Mexico in a stolen 2004 maroon Ford Taurus with the Texas license plate CTS3225.

    This happened over four days ago. He would've only been 5 or 6 hours from reaching a good point-of-entry into Mexico, most likely in Laredo, Tx. I don't know what the period of time was between when she was shot and when they discovered she was shot, but if it was more than 6 or 8 hours, he probably made it into Mexico before the alert went out.

    If not, I hope he chooses to resist arrest and fight it out with those Texas cops.........we should be rid of this POS once and for all, shortly thereafter.

    From March 2017, translated by Google:

    It's been almost two years since Veronica Mercado , 26, and her 2-year-old daughter Linnette, were found dead in a pool of blood on the kitchen floor of a home in southeast Houston and the alleged perpetrator of the crime, Jonatan Figueroa, is still a fugitive...

    They are certain that there are people, both in Texas and on the other side of the border, who know Figueroa or have seen him. They want to appeal to the power of denunciation so that the deaths of the young mother and her daughter do not go unpunished.

    The position in which the bodies were found and the way the furniture and other objects were left in the house showed that the young mother grabbed her baby with both arms and ran as hard as she could through the house trying to escape.
