PASADENA, TX (KTRK) — A day after a woman was allegedly kidnapped at gunpoint in Pasadena and later found dead in Houston, police have issued an arrest warrant for her ex-boyfriend.
Investigators in both cities are trying to locate Daniel Chacon, whom police identified on Tuesday as a person involved in the murder.
Witnesses said the woman’s ex-boyfriend pushed her into her own SUV, which turned up Monday night with her body inside.
Pasadena police confirmed they were investigating a concrete-barrier camp site in southeast Houston where an SUV containing the body was located. The Houston Police Department tweeted that they were helping with the investigation at 5200 Cedar Crest near Mykawa and the South Loop.
Police linked this scene to an aggravated kidnapping call received at an apartment complex at 9:51 am. According to officials, a caller reported how a man forced a woman at gunpoint into a vehicle in the 3800 block of Red Bluff in Pasadena.
Police added that the woman was found inside the vehicle with a gunshot wound. Her identity was not immediately released.
Her family wasn’t ready to speak publicly about it just yet, but they did confirm that the woman and her ex had a child together. The child is doing well and is with his family now.
Although no arrests have been made, Pasadena police believe the alleged kidnapper and victim were involved in two previous domestic violence incidents with the department. Officials in those calls contacted prosecutors to press charges but were not accepted.
“In the past few weeks there have been a few other reports of rioting, domestic violence cases. So that developed quickly. These are still under investigation. Unfortunately, in none of these cases were charges accepted. So unfortunately here we are (Monday),” said Pasadena Police Department Sgt. Raúl Granados.
Police believe Chacon is dangerous and may still have a gun.
The Pasadena Police Department is scheduled to hold a briefing with more information Tuesday at 2 p.m.
