Person of interest arrested in father, daughter murders

- Just days after police confirmed 14-year-old Adriana Coronado was murdered by gunshots, a person of interest was taken into custody.

The FBI has confirmed 34-year-old Jose Solis, was arrested in Magnolia on charges of cocaine conspiracy, a charge unrelated to the deaths of Adriana and Cesar Coronado.

The link between this suspect and the deaths of the Coronados is currently unclear.

Solis has a previous criminal record for assault.

Neighbors described the scene as swat swarmed the trailer home that Solis was in during his arrest.

“I went out to the driveway because SWAT team was in our yard, and I asked what was going on, and he said he couldn't tell us. My fiance drove down there, and he saw them going in and out,” said Ashley Mud, a neighbor.

Investigators spent hours bagging and tagging evidence as well as scrutinizing two white cars on the property.

Earlier this month, Cesar Coronado body was found with gunshot wounds, burned and dumped in Walker county. His daughter Adriana's body was also found with gunshot wounds down the road from her apartment complex in west Houston.

Because he was arrested on a federal search warrant, Solis is being held in federal custody.

Solis is scheduled to be in court early Friday morning.
