FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 25, 2018

Bodies Discovered on Von Quintus Rd. Identified

At approximately 7:00 am on August 24, 2018 a passing motorist observed a man lying on the ground, next to a vehicle, in front of a home in the 12000 block of Von Quintus Rd. in south Travis County. Upon arrival, deputies observed the deceased male on the ground and a deceased female in the driver’s seat of the vehicle. Both decedents had gunshot wounds. A pistol was discovered lying next to the male.

The decedents are identified as:

OMAR GARCIA, 26 of Del Valle
NANCY GARCIA, 23 of Del Valle

While the decedents share the same last name, they are not married. They were in a relationship with each other and Omar had recently been arrested for Assault/Family Violence. Nancy was the victim in that incident. The address where they were found is the couple’s residence. Evidence at the scene points to Murder/Suicide committed by Omar. There appears to be no connection between this incident and the discovery of the body of Johnny Cardenas nearby on July 11, 2018.
