WANTED FOR THE MURDER OF HIS WIFE!

Richmond, TX – The Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office joins with the Rosenberg Police Department to ask your help to locate a murder suspect, Tomas Maldonado, DOB 03/07/1970. Maldonado should be considered extremely dangerous.

Rosenberg officers responded to a physical disturbance Wednesday night and found that a woman was attacked by her estranged husband. Tragically, she later died. Witnesses advised that the suspect fled the scene in a red 2016 Chevrolet 2500 truck with a paper license plate (66503A8). The truck was later found abandoned in Columbus, Texas. Maldonado allegedly has family or friends in Central Texas. Authorities are now searching for the suspect and are encouraging anyone with information regarding his destination or location to step forward.

The incident occurred in the 800 block of San Jacinto Street at approximately 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15, 2020. It is believed that Tomas Maldonado made threats in the days preceding the attack and has made similar threats against other family members too.

“Our community has suffered a tragic loss, the victim and her family are in our thoughts and prayers. We are working diligently to ensure that Tomas Maldonado is found and provided an opportunity to answer for what he has done,” said Rosenberg Police Chief Jonathan White.

“We know it’s tough out there right now, we knew domestic violence would likely increase, and so we said to keep calm,” said District Attorney Brian Middleton. “And now we are faced with unnecessary violence, tragic loss, and a potentially dangerous fugitive. I cannot stress this enough – keep a level head, walk away from conflict, or suffer the full force of the law.”

Anyone with information about a crime is encouraged to contact Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS (8477). You can also submit tips online at http://www.fortbend.crimestoppersweb.com. Information leading to the apprehension and filing of charges on the suspect(s) involved, could earn you up to a $5,000.00 CASH REWARD. All calls to Crime Stoppers are ANONYMOUS.

Senator Borris Miles Letter to the Governor: We Must Have More Testing Before State Reopens!

Today I wrote the Governor that he should not consider reopening the state until widespread testing is done in African American neighborhoods. Testing sites have been located in hard to reach areas away from communities of color like Northeast and Southeast Houston. There is a data gap, and our neighborhoods will suffer if the state reopens while African American neighborhoods are still battling COVID-19.
