Capital Murder Suspect Sought in Death of East Texas Child

MARSHALL – The Harrison County Sheriff’s office is investigating the death of a 2-year-old girl that occurred Sunday morning.

Authorities say the child, who was unconscious, was brought to the emergency room by her mother around 1 a.m. Sunday. Hospital staff were unable to revive the child who have turned 3 years old Feb. 21. The mother said she found her daughter, Yeli Madalyn Jimenez, unconscious on the floor. An autopsy determined the child died of massive blunt trauma.

Investigators interviewed family members, as well as the mother, to determine the boyfriend of the mother, Jose Luis Casiano-Aburto, a hispanic male, approximately 27 years old, had allegedly struck the child in the abdomen and had previously assaulted the mother.

As investigators began to search for the suspect to conduct an interview, it was discovered he had fled to Mexico on Monday afternoon and had gained entry. Within 24 hours of the child’s death, a probable cause affidavit was prepared and an arrest warrant for capital murder has been issued by the Harrison County District Attorney’s Office.

The suspect is an illegal alien from Mexico and the U.S. Marshalls, U.S. Border Patrol Agents, Homeland Security and Mexican authorities have offered assistance to find the suspect and return him to the United States.
