  • $10,000 reward for wanted Texas fugitive

    Thirty-three-year-old Israel Aguirre, who has earlier been arrested for murder, prostitution, theft, and failure to ID, now has the reward money for his capture increased to $10,000.

    Aguirre had been convicted of a theft charge in 2002 and had been incarcerated at a Texas Department of Criminal Justice facility. He was deported to Mexico after completing his sentence before being charged with murder.

    In 2005, Aguirre made a no contest plea to charges of prostitution and failure to ID in Dallas and was released on bond in relation to his murder charge. He appeared in court a couple of times between the years 2005 and 2007 before disappearing.

    The Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for Aguirre’s arrest on Sept. 9, 2007. It is believed that the suspect frequents the Dallas area.

    Employment opportunities, hefty fines, and possible long periods of prison time await people who are convicted of a criminal charge. Don’t take the risk of these things affecting your life.
