23-year-old fugitive Julian Murillo from Refugio, a small town outside Corpus Christi, was arrested in California on Nov. 15. Reports say he had been wanted since December 2021. The Victoria County Sheriff’s Office issued warrants for his arrest for murder, aggravated robbery, evading arrest and detention, and failure to identify after his alleged involvement in the death of a 19-year-old man back in September 2021.

Catarino Chavez II, 60, of Grand Prairie was arrested on Nov. 17 in Dallas. Officials say he had been wanted since May when the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles issued a parole violation warrant for his arrest and in August police issued a warrant for his arrest after he failed to register as a sex offender.

Back in 1998, reports say Chavez was convicted of attempted aggravated sexual assault of a child. He was sentenced to five years of confinement. In 2005, he was also convicted of two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and two counts of indecency with a child following incidents involving a 13-year-old and 14-year-old girl.


Reports say he received 20 years of confinement for each charge and was released on parole in 2021.

Daniel Munoz, 40, was also arrested on Nov. 17, but in San Antonio officials say. He has been on the list since February 2022 after the Bexar County Sheriff's Office issued two warrants for his arrest after he failed to comply with sex offender registration requirements.

Reports say Munoz was convicted again in 2019 for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements and was sentenced to three years of probation.
