Investigators say Bryan Eumyr Vega-Velez has been on the run since the summer of 2016 from Houston, TX. It was then that authorities say Alma D. Rivera-Melendez was found dead in the middle of the night, around 12:40 a.m., in the 9800 block of West Sam Houston Parkway.

On June 11, 2016, the pair, who were dating at the time, was arguing over text message, police say. It was when Vega-Velez came home that night that Alama was allegedly murdered. Vega-Velez was initially arrested and put behind bars for less than a year awaiting trial, but at some point he was able to bond out. It was then that he fled and has been wanted ever since.
