Wanted for murder

Heriberto “Beto” Gallegos Borrego is wanted for murder in connection with a stabbing death at a local skating rink in 2014.

During the summer of 2014 a party at a local skating rink ended in violence, leaving two men dead and several others wounded.

The deaths of L’Jorian Marquise “Kutt” Harris and Darius Diondre Hubbard remain unsolved.

“It doesn’t seem like it has been five years,” said Evelyne Davis, Harris’ aunt, who contacted the Herald-Banner this week about mentioning the anniversary of the deaths, in the hopes justice can be found for all of the victims.

Harris and Hubbard were killed at the Skate Safari, 5002 Moulton Street, which has since closed, during the early morning hours of Aug. 16, 2014.

Upon arriving at the address, Greenville Police Department officers found multiple stabbing victims. In addition to the deaths, seven more people were reported injured.

The only suspect identified in the deaths is still on the loose. Heriberto “Beto” Gallegos Borrego is wanted for murder in Harris’ death.

“They say he is in Mexico, so they can’t get him,” Harris said.

Police Lt. Adam Phillips confirmed there is an active warrant for Borrego’s arrest.

“It is believed that Borrego is in Mexico,” Phillips said. “Investigators are seeking to have an international warrant issued and have filed the paperwork with the District Attorney’s Office in Hunt County.”

“We do have an active warrant for him,” said District Attorney Noble D. Walker. “I’m not at liberty to discuss any other options at this time.”

During a 2015 memorial event Lakenya Harris, L’Jorian’s mother, pleaded with anyone in the crowd who was there to tell what they know.

Anyone with information is being asked to call the police department at 903-457-2900.

Following a 2015 memorial event which stretched between the 1900 block of Edgar Street and the police department headquarters at 3000 Lee Street., Lakenya Harris, L’Jorian’s mother, pleaded anyone in the crowd who was there to tell what they know and Davis agrees it is time for answers and action.

“Maybe somebody could step up and say something,” she said.

Harris was survived by his parents, two children, six siblings and several more family members and friends.

Hubbard was an employee of Masonite in Greenville and was survived by his parents, four siblings and several more family members and friends.

Hunt County Crime Stoppers has also posted a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest(s) of the person or persons responsible for the deaths.
