“We have not forgotten” | Community holds a trail in honor of Arlene Alvarez
Wendy and Armando Alvarez said they don’t feel justice has been done in their daughter’s case.
HOUSTON. It’s been over a year since Arlene Alvarez was shot and her parents, with the help of the community, are still doing everything they can to keep their daughter’s memory alive and raise awareness of the open case.
During a walk on Sunday, Wendy and Armando Alvarez said they did not feel justice had been done in their daughter’s case.
“Everyone is here just to show that justice has not been done to my daughter,” said Armando Alvarez. “Everyone is here to support us. To show us that we haven’t forgotten and it’s not going to be swept under the rug.”
A grand jury declined to indict the man who police said pulled the trigger. They said he didn’t mean to shoot Arlene.
The search continues for the man accused of starting the chain of events that led to the death of a 9-year-old boy on Valentine’s Day in 2022. killed.
Police said the man who pulled the trigger was in fact the victim himself and fired the gun in self-defense. Investigators believe the man was with his wife withdrawing money from an ATM near the Gulf and Loop Freeway when another man approached and robbed them at gunpoint.
The robbed man told police that when he got out of his car, he heard gunshots and thought he was being shot at, so he opened fire on what he thought was the suspect’s car. It turned out to be the Alvarez family truck, and Arlene was hit and killed.
Police said they have video footage of a man they are looking for jumping over the fence of a nearby business after being robbed. Arlene’s parents want everyone to see this video and they want him to be caught.
A reward of $30,000 is offered in the case.
