Lubbock, TX (KCBD) - KCBD NewsChannel 11 looked into the details of Humberto Salinas Jr's violent criminal background. It begins in 1986 when he served twelve years for injury to a child. The police report says:
"He stated that he had gotten a steel box - one that he used for a car jack and had dropped the victim on top of it several times." That victim was his daughter, who was just four months old at the time.
When officers asked if he was trying to kill his daughter he stated quote "I don't know I guess I'm crazy." The report says he told one story and then "broke down and started weeping" and eventually confessed he had initially told a false story. At first he claimed he fell asleep holding his daughter and then woke up as he accidentally dropped her. The documents show she had injuries to her head and leg.
Then in 2007 Salinas was arrested for aggravated assault. The report says he threatened to kill a man with a knife and assaulted him.
Later that same year he was arrested for domestic assault towards his current wife Carmen Rosa Manzanares. She said he "hit her in the mouth, hit her with his left fist, and grabbed her with his right hand and struck her head against the dash of a vehicle ."
Police reports show he only served one day in jail and paid nothing in fines for the domestic assault.
