Thoughts? I checked Harris County court records for vital statistics (height, weight, etc.) but didn't see anything for a "Manuel Regino" so it looks like he was never arrested before he allegedly murdered Jose Conteras. Not sure if Manuel was born in the US or Latin America, so that would influence whether an arrest in Latin America would be easier or more difficult.
