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.
