Arrest Made in 2009 Homicide

On April 20, 2009, Dallas Police investigated the shooting death of Antonio Avilez-Sanchez at 411 N. Plymouth Road. As a result of the investigation, Ruben Galvan L/M 06-20-1980 and Jose Arrez Rangel L/M/ 04-10-1975 were identified as shooting the complainant for revenge. Rangel was convicted of murder in 2011 and is currently serving a life sentence in prison.

Ruben Galvan reportedly fled to Mexico. Detectives were able to obtain a voluntary video statement which implicates Galvan in the murder. Additional evidence has been corroborated that places Galvan in the area during the time of the murder.

In February of 2015, Detectives received information that Galvan has returned to the United States and is currently being held on unrelated charges in a Federal Correctional Facility in Oklahoma. Detectives obtained a murder warrant which was served in jail with a $500,000.00 bond.
