In a post shared on the platform formerly known as Twitter, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez later disclosed that the woman had tragically passed away at the hospital due to her injuries. According to data from the Gun Violence Archive, between September 1 and October 1, 2023, there have been 123 fatal shooting incidents in Texas. It’s worth mentioning that this statistic does not include the deaths of perpetrators or suspects.
Additionally, figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal that one in five homicide victims is killed by an intimate partner. The CDC’s findings also indicate that over half of female homicide victims in the United States are victimized by a current or former male intimate partner. Family members informed investigators that the victim had initiated divorce proceedings from Navarrete. After almost three decades of marriage, the victim had recently moved to the area where the tragic incident unfolded, as reported by ABC13.
Regarding the murder, Gonzalez stated, “[Navarrete] came to this location, confronted her, and discharged his firearm at her. It’s commonly said that the period when a couple is separating or discussing divorce can be highly tumultuous. In this instance, once again, this observation sadly held true.” “It seems, based on our gathered information, that she believed this location to be a secure refuge. I’m uncertain about how he discovered her whereabouts, whether someone disclosed it, but when someone is determined to find another person, they often do,” he added.
The suspect is said to have fled the scene of the crime in a white 2002 GMC Sierra pickup truck bearing the Texas license plate: PBV-3006. The department is actively seeking any information about Navarrete and his current location, and they strongly encourage anyone with knowledge about the suspect to reach out to Harris County police at 713-274-9100 or contact @CrimeStopHou at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
