In 2014, Alexis Diaz Reyes and two other men left a party after an argument. While driving off, Diaz Reyes asked Guillermo Cantu for a gun he had. When trying to unload the gun, it went off - striking Cantu and killing him.

Alexis Diaz Reyes and another man dumped Garza's body at a ranch in Zapata, where it was found almost two months later after Diaz Reyes confessed while being questioned.

Diaz Reyes pled guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
