Osvaldo Fernandez Aguilar Murder Case:KPRC-2 reported on Monday that police are still looking for a Texas man who is wanted for the murder of a cleaning lady at a strip club in Houston. Harris County authorities have issued an arrest warrant for Osvaldo Fernandez Aguilar for the death of 27year-old Maria Lucrecia. Update: Osvaldo Fernandez-Aguilar was caught in Cancun, Mexico.

Lucrecia was killed at the Eclipse Gentlemen's Club in Houston, TX., where she worked as a cleaning lady. Her body was discovered by her husband, who had come to the club to check on his wife because she was not picking up her phone.

Harris County police say that the Osvaldo Fernandez Aguilar can be seen on videotape walking by Maria Lucrecia's husband right after the murder.

According to documents obtained by Traciy Curry-Reyes of Examiner, Aguilar broke into the club on the afternoon of March 22 and struck Maria Lucrecia with an object, before strangling the woman to death.

He then stole $1,000 from the cash register and left the club.

Maria Lucrecia's husband, German Castro, stated that ordinarily she would have taken her five-year-old child with her to work. That day, however, the child stayed with him, according to the New York Daily News.

Osvaldo Fernandez-Aguilar worked as a security-club bouncer at Eclipse strip club, according to court documents.

Police are asking for the public's help in locating the suspect. Anyone with information should contact Crimestoppers at (713) 222-TIPS.
