A 911 call to the Bailey County Sheriff’s office Friday morning led to the arrest of a Muleshoe man for aggravated assault and kidnapping.
According to online reports, Lucio Gollo Camacho, is accused of stabbing a woman and escaping with her and her 3-year-old child in a 2005 Ford pickup. The woman was found dead in the pickup when Camacho was taken into custody and booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center.
The family has released the name of the victim, Oralia Granados of Muleshoe, the mother of three children.
The child was unhurt and was released to Child Protective Services and later into the custody of his biological father.
The Bailey County Sheriff was not available to speak to the Muleshoe Journal Tuesday morning, but DPS, Bailey County and Garza County officials have released a basic timeline of events:
At approximately 12:05 a.m. the Bailey County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call, and the caller advised that a male subject had stabbed a female, and then left the residence with that female victim as well as her 3-year-old child.
At approximately 1:55 a.m., Garza County Sheriff’s Office received a report from the Giles W. Dalby Correctional Institution in Post, Texas, stating that a male – later identified as the suspect, Lucio Gollo Camacho, 47 years old – had just assaulted a correctional officer and attempted to take the officer’s weapon.
The suspect was reported to be driving a 2005 Ford pickup truck. The Garza County Sheriff’s Office located the Ford pickup truck traveling westbound on US 84 and attempted to stop the vehicle. The suspect evaded law enforcement in the vehicle, travelling into Lubbock County.  The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office joined the effort to stop the vehicle.
The vehicle finally came to a stop near US 84 and Loop 289 in Lubbock. The suspect was taken into custody and booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center. The deceased female victim was located in the suspect’s vehicle along with the victim’s uninjured 3-year-old child. The child was released to Texas Child Protective Services.
This is an ongoing investigation conducted by the Bailey County Sheriff’s Office and the Texas Rangers. Additional information will be released as needed.
