Erasmo Segundo, 22, Bayou Body Count No. 66

Augustin Cabrera is about a month and a half in on a year-long jail sentence for stealing a car with a bunch of guys. But it looks like the 20-year-old could be facing a lot more time behind bars.

Police charged Cabrera with murder on Wednesday. He is accused of killing 22-year-old Erasmo Segundo just a few days before he went to jail for helping to burglarize the car.

On January 24, someone called the cops about gunfire around the 10100 block of Burden in north Houston. When officers arrived, they found Segundo slouched down in a Chevy truck that was stuck in a ditch. Someone had shot him in the head.

Segundo was rushed to the hospital, where he survived for several days. But, like most men, a bullet to the head was more than he could take, and he eventually died from the gunshot wound.

Police are not saying much about how they caught up with Cabrera other than they got a tip that led them to him. He is currently locked up in the Harris County jail.
