Cesar Carlos Castaneda is being sought for murder in Texas. On January 2, 1995, Castaneda, along with several associates who were previous caretakers of the victim, allegedly burglarized the home of a male victim in El Paso. During the burglary, the elderly victim reportedly surprised the suspects and was then beaten to death with blunt objects. Castaneda's accomplices were arrested. Castaneda was arrested in El Paso, Texas, on March 3, 1995, and later released on bond. He fled the El Paso area and remains at large.
On September 10, 1997, a state arrest warrant was issued by the El Paso County 34th District Court, El Paso, Texas, charging Cesar Carlos Castaneda with capital murder, burglary of habitation, and aggravated robbery. Subsequently, on October 27, 1998, the United States District Court, Western District of Texas, issued a federal arrest warrant charging Castaneda with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
