Daniel Chacon Bio – Daniel Chacon Wiki
Authorities in Texas are searching for a man they allege abducted his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint before she was found dead in her SUV.
Daniel Chacon is 30 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
On Monday, Daniel Chacon fled following the alleged kidnapping of a 38-year-old mom of four, Maira Gutierrez, Pasadena Police Chief Josh Bruegger said during a press conference.
According to Bruegger, when the incident began, Gutierrez was visiting the couple’s 5-month-old son at Chacon’s Pasadena, Tex., apartment.
Witnesses told police they saw Chacon “dragging a female into a vehicle” with a gun in his hand.
Authorities found the vehicle — with Gutierrez’s body inside — abandoned in southeast Houston that same day, Bruegger said.
Chacon has an active warrant out for his arrest.
He is charged with aggravated kidnapping, and the district attorney is considering upgrading the charges, Bruegger mentioned during the press conference. Police also said he has ties to Mexico.
“I’m confident somebody knows where he is,” Bruegger told reporters.
According to police, the ex-couple had a history of domestic violence.
Officers responded to two calls of assault at Chacon’s apartment in September, said Bruegger.
In addition to the 5-month-old boy, Gutierrez leaves behind three more children, ages 19, 14, and 12, KHOU-TV reports.
While the search for Chacon continues, a GoFundMe has been launched to help offset funeral costs.
