Lopez (L) Salinas
WANTED FOR MURDER

On June 18, 2001, in the early morning hours after Father's Day, Mario Espinosa was brutally murdered at the front door of his home in Galveston.

Four people were subsequently indicted for his murder, a murder that the evidence showed to have been committed for the promise of money, money to be paid by Jose Pablo Lopez.

Two of the four were convicted and the other two accused, Jose Pablo Lopez and Elisandro Salinas, remain on the run.

Authorities believe Jose Pablo Lopez was the mastermind of the murder for hire and the individual that promised to pay the killers money in exchange for the murder, and Elisandro Salinas provided the weapons.

It has been more than nine (11) years since this senseless murder and we will never stop in our efforts to bring those responsible for the death of Mario Espinosa to Justice, said Galveston County District Attorney Kurt Sistrunk in a 2009 interview with The Police News.

Anyone with information regarding the location of either Jose Pablo Lopez or Elisandro Salinas, should call the Galveston Police Department or Crime Stoppers (409) 945-8477 (TIPS).
