Press Conference: Dallas Police Arrest Murder Suspect

On December 5, 2015, officers responded to a deceased person call at 5735 Gaston Avenue, where Mr. Timoteo Diaz was found to be deceased by homicidal violence. Detectives canvassed the area and located witnesses who indicated that the victim was last seen with Eldel Alexander Martinez, Latin male 28. Martinez was brought in and questioned by detectives about the death of Mr. Diaz and made statements about the murder that could only have been known by the victim and suspect. He was placed under arrest and is currently in the Dallas County Jail on a $200,000 bond.

We like to take this time to thank the family and community for their patience during this difficult time and the detectives who diligently worked to solve the murder of Mr. Diaz.
