LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - A death is reported in central Laredo on Thursday.

With yellow tape surrounding the area, police were forced to face a reality they weren’t hoping to surface.

“Regrettably, we do have to report the fourth murder for this year in relationship to a call we received at 3 a.m. this morning.”

Joe Baeza, an investigator with the Laredo Police Department, shared with KGNS another tragic situation here in the gateway city that happened along the 3700 block of Sanders.

“A passerby reported that he saw the man on the ground that appeared unconscious, on the ground that needed help. When first responders and police officers arrived, they did confirm that the individual who is being identified as a 29 year-old male had already passed away.”

Investigators remained tight lipped, but they could be seen looking into the case that led to this unexpected murder.

Trash cans were searched, but no one can confirm at this time if the murder even occurred at the scene.

“As usual, in these types of cases... part of the investigation is to canvass the area to talk to anybody who may heard anything else, or if any device that’s found, video, we’re looking at this time in this case.”

The time investigators utilize could unlock the details behind what truly happened and why this young man’s life was cut short.

If you have any information in the case, you’re asked to call police at 795-2800 or Crime Stoppers at 727-TIPS.
