ARLINGTON, Texas — One man is jailed on a murder charge and another is sought after a severed head was found near downtown Arlington.
Police affidavits say police found the head of what appeared to be a 20-to-30-year-old Hispanic man with a sign with a Spanish text that roughly translates as “the race is in control and four are left.” Some of Hispanic heritage refer to their ethnic group as “the race.”
Mariano Sanchez, who was already in custody on outstanding burglary and drug possession warrants, has been charged with murder in the case. A murder warrant has been issued for 28-year-old Hector Acosta-Ojeda, a 5-foot-8-inch, 190-pound man police believe to be armed and dangerous.
Investigators say other human remains have been found related to the case. They believe the victims were targeted.
