According to reports, Frank Deleon Jr. summoned the 16-year-old victim, Diamond Alvarez, to meet him at a local park near her house, via text message. Shortly thereafter gunshots rang out and the family dog ran all the way home. That is when Diamond Alvarez’s family feared the worse and began to look for her in a frantic manner.
The Alvarez family found Diamond’s body near the park where she normally took the family dog for walks during the nighttime. Her mother, Anna Machado, tried to revive her daughter by performing CPR, but it was to no avail as she was pronounced dead on the scene.
Frank Deleon Jr is currently being held at the Harris County Jail. His bound is $250,000. Upon his arrest, the local authorities reported that Deleon was in the process of packing his bags so that he could make an attempt to flee.
