TEXAS CITY, Texas (KTRK) — As Texas City police search for three people on the run after a 65-year-old man was beaten to death, details are emerging about what could have led to the attack, including the victim’s past conviction for indecency with a child.
Police already have 30-year-old Christopher Daniel Gomez in custody for the murder of Daniel Sanders, who investigators say was jumped outside of Diamond Jim’s Country Saloon and Dance Hall just after midnight Saturday.
According to police, Gomez and three others are charged in the attack. The other suspects being sought are Antonio Marcus Figueroa, 37; Ashton Lee Coleman, 21; and Preston Figueroa, 17.
Investigators believe the three have begun skipping town, possibly for outside Texas or the U.S.
Gomez was taken into custody and is being held at the Galveston County Jail on $250,000 bond.
Texas City Crime Stoppers is now offering up to a $5,000 reward on each suspect for information leading to their arrest.
