Divis Garcia Ordonez, Antonio Leon: Escaped to Honduras After West Bellfort Murders, HPD Says

Two men who have been charged with a pair of murders at a West Bellfort apartment complex this month are believed to have escaped to Honduras, Houston police say.

Divis Garcia Ordonez, 24, and Antonio Leon, 21, who also goes by George Celaya, are each charged with two counts of murder in the March 20 deaths of Manuel Ponce, 31, and Elvin Gutierrez-Reyes, 23.

Police originally thought one person was responsible for the killings, which occurred about 2 a.m. at an apartment complex in the 6200 block of West Bellfort.

According to the somewhat odd police report, the victims were waiting in the complex for one of the suspects to return home so they could return a lost phone to him. When the suspects saw the two men, they began shooting.

The two suspects "are believed to have fled to their native country of Honduras," poice say.

Anyone with information in this case or on the whereabouts of the wanted suspects is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
