On Jan 22, 1998, Horacio Alvarez, Leonard Torres, Elvin Sanchez and Rosie Soliz were all patrons at a local bar in Fort Worth, Texas. Horacio and Leonard got into an argument over Rosie, which led them to confront each other outside the bar. Once outside, Horacio shot Leonard to death. As the other bar patrons went outside, Horacio shot Elvin and Rosie to death as well. In the weeks afterward, an investigation led authorities to identify Horacio as the shooter and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Based on crime location it is advised to contact Fort Worth Crimestoppers at 817-469-TIPS.

Thoughts? Unfortunately even for a triple murder case, the only available news reports on this case come from Newslibrary archives taken back in January and February of 1998. Horacio Alvarez is an extremely dangerous fugitive yet it doesn't seem like any major publicity effort has ever been taken to locate him. That needs to change now nearly 20 years later. Chihuahua, Mexico is a good place to look for him as that's his Mexican birth state.
Does anyone know where i can find the episode on this crime
This is a true crime/fugitive sleuthing forum for fans of the tv show and America's Most Wanted and In Pursuit with John Walsh.
In addition to cases shown on the show, we try to look up other cases and cold case fugitive cases never shown on the show that we can find online in the "forum-exclusive" section that we think the public should also be aware of. Obviously HeadMarshal felt that a serious case like this should get more attention and posted it here.
To the best of my knowledge, Alvarez has unfortunately never been aired on America's Most Wanted or In Pursuit.

There was a episode cause I looked it up like almost five years ago and it was just a little clip towards the end of the episode like be on the look out it was not a full episode on the case just that he was wanted just wondering if anyone happen to still have the clip on it
My apologies, because the show aired so many fugitives sometimes we post some cases as "exclusives" disappointed AMW never aired them, only to find out the show actually did air them. I assume that he was at the end of an episode is why we missed this one.
I will open back up the request episode thread you posted, although once again unfortunately because of Fox's copyrights and Fox not repeating old episodes, unfortunately old AMW episodes are basically limited to whatever is saved on YouTube by private users. Although it sounds like this may have been shown on YouTube and it may be a matter of trying to find it (although unfortunately there is the possibility Fox had YouTube delete it due to copyright claims). I will re-open the thread/episode request you had (and move this thread to the Fugitives on TV section now that we know about this).
Thank you for joining our forum. I hope that Horacio Alvarez is brought to justice after being wanted for over 20 years. The episode he was on may have been from 1998, shortly after the triple homicide occurred.
I also just wanted to say that in case you are a relative of either Leonard Torres, Elvin Sanchez or Rosie Soliz (please understand you don't have to say if you are publicly), I do assist a non-profit organization in Jacksonville, Florida called Project: Cold Case. They advocate for families in unsolved homicide cases and support them. They've had almost 1,000 cases submitted to them by families and law enforcement.
If you are a relative of either Leonard, Elvin or Rosie, then check out their organization if you wish. I'm not trying to solicit cases for them, I just want families in unsolved cases to know that they are a resource and they would be glad to help any family who wanted their assistance.
