Texas Teen Charged with Capital Murder Following Amber Alert

Texas Teen Charged with Capital Murder Following Amber Alert

A Texas teen, initially believed to be in grave danger, has been charged with capital murder. On September 1, an Amber Alert was issued for 17-year-old Natalie Navarro, following the discovery of 21-year-old Arturo Pena’s body in a vehicle at Audubon Park in Garland, near downtown Dallas, on August 29. Pena, reported missing two days prior, had been fatally shot.

Navarro was named a person of interest in the case on the same day the alert was disseminated. She was later located and arrested, with her bond set at $1 million, according to Webb County Jail records. Garland Police have also issued a murder warrant for 21-year-old Yordy Martinez, initially named as a suspect in Navarro’s disappearance and now wanted in connection with Pena’s death. Martinez remains at large.

Garland Police Sergeant Richard Maldonado informed that the circumstances leading Navarro and Martinez to become involved in the investigation are yet to be clarified. Maldonado urged anyone with information on Martinez’s whereabouts or the case to contact the Garland Police at 972-485-4840.
