Family of Murdered La Feria Man Speaks Out on Arrest

Aaron Juarez

A devastated father, Fabian Juarez admits the death of his 25-year-old son Aaron Juarez has not sunk in yet.

"I felt like we were having a get together and he just wasn't here yet," Juarez said.

Aaron Juarez was killed Saturday.

According to Corpus Christi Police, 31-year-old David Alvarez beat him unconscious at the parking lot of a Whataburger because of an accidental ding on a vehicle.

"Of course we were very angry, and we just didn't understand how somebody can take our son away from us like that," Fabian Juarez said.

Thursday afternoon, the same day Aaron Juarez was laid to rest, Corpus Christi police arrested Alvarez and charged him with murder.

The Juarez TMs said the arrest couldn't come soon enough, however, Nora Juarez, Aaron's mother, said the $200,000 bond, just doesn't fit the crime.

"People get bigger bonds that do less and someone died here, and I think the bond is just definitely not enough," Nora Juarez said.

For now, the family is just relieved that their son's alleged killer is off the streets.

They're putting their faith in the judicial system and hoping justice will be served, but they know no sentence will bring Aaron Juarez back.

"He has no idea the pain that he's caused in our family in our community, Lea Juarez, Aaron TMs sister said about Alvarez. My brother was a good man, he did not deserve that."

"Aaron had a heart of gold, his mother added. People loved him. I didn't realize the so many lives that he affected. We were truly blessed to have him in our lives.
