LAGUNA HEIGHTS - Cameron County investigators are searching for a suspect accused of murdering a man in Laguna Heights.
Investigators said Lucio Garcia Navarro, 24, killed Jose Martinez early Wednesday at his home on Michigan Avenue, near Highway 100. Witnesses said the two fought before the murder.
Navarro allegedly struck Martinez with a large object. The victim died at Valley Regional Medical Center in Brownsville.
Martinez's wife, Angela Martinez, said she found his body.
"I went to look for him; I thought maybe a friend had come to visit. He was lying in a pool of blood," she said.
