Witnesses said they saw Casillas arguing with a man at the repair shop and noted five others had come with the customer. Suddenly, the argument took a turn, with the mechanic telling the customer to take his vehicle and leave. But then, witnesses saw the mechanic take off running with the six men chasing and eventually catching him. Accounts state Casillas was on his knees, begging for his life when someone shot him in the head at close range.
The Houston Police Department hasn’t released any further information about the case, nor have they named any potential suspects. Casillas’ family turned over details about the person they believe committed the murder. According to reports, a funeral service was held for the slain mechanic on December 29.
