The suspects are wanted in the death of Cesar A. Morales, 40, who sustained bruising to his face and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Surveillance video of the suspects as they initially confront Mr. Morales (wearing a white hooded sweatshirt) is posted on the HPD YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/_uqSb8hz3FU. Surveillance photos of the two males are attached to this news release.
HPD Homicide Division Detectives J. Villareal and W. Huff reported:
Officers responded to a call reporting a death outside a business at the above address and found Mr. Morales lying on the sidewalk and unresponsive. Paramedics pronounced him deceased.
A passerby noticed Morales lying on the sidewalk in the 2 a.m. hour, but did not witness any incident.
Further investigation determined the two suspects seen in a surveillance video confronting Morales have been observed in the strip shopping center on numerous occasions, but their identities are unknown.
