Investigators Find Human Remains in Mission Property Linked to Home Invasion

NEAR MISSION – Investigators have positively identified the remains found on a property north of Mission as belonging to 32-year-old Jose Angel Martinez, one of the two alleged victims in the capital murder case north of Edinburg.

Several sheriff’s units, a tractor, and a crime scene investigation unit recovered his body from a “shallow grave” in a ranch area near Mayberry Road and 6 Mile Line.

Francisco Cabrera, who’s lived nearby for about three decades, said he starts his day enjoying the view from his front porch. He said his peaceful view was interrupted Wednesday morning when law enforcement arrived at the scene. 

“Well, I was thinking something terrible must have happened,” he said. 

Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra said testimony and evidence from a capital murder case out of Edinburg led them to the location. 

“I can confirm that we did find human remains buried here on this ranch,” he told CHANNEL 5 NEWS. “Crime scene specialists and our major crime unit will be

How will family’s discovery of remains affect Brockton murder case?

Family members of a murdered Brockton man made a gruesome discovery last week when they found what the police couldn’t.

BROCKTON — The hardest thing Joseph Shaw’s family has gone through was losing their son, brother, uncle and friend. Then, hearing the details of his death in court caused many of them to have to leave and added to their fresh pain.

But what they found later that day inside his apartment made their hearts break even more.

Joseph Shaw, 44, was found stabbed more than 30 times and wrapped in a blanket inside a closet at his home, 42 Green St., on July 21. His girlfriend, 33-year-old Kathryn Podgurski led police to the body and told them he had been there for about a week. She claimed Shaw was killed in a different location during an armed home invasion and that

Investigation into Remains Found in Septic Tank Near Elsa Underway

ELSA – The remains found inside a septic tank near Elsa are believed to be of a woman, according to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office. 

Investigators with the sheriff’s department and Hidalgo County Precinct 1 responded to a home on Mile 4 W Road and Dallas Street Wednesday night. That’s north of Monte Cristo Road.

Deputies responded to a call about suspicious circumstances. The occupant of the home said he first discovered a bone in the septic tank. 

Crews with Precinct 1 brought in a backhoe to dig up the area and a crime scene investigator retrieved the femur.

Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra said a forensic pathologist confirmed they were human remains. 

“We’re sifting through that raw sewage and we have recovered, so far, various ribs. We’ve got the skull. The skull does have the teeth intact,” he said. “We’re at that process right now. Obviously, it’s going to take a while.”
