Two Suspects Arrested In Lubbock Murder Case

Two arrests have been in the Russell Baldree murder investigation. After receiving a Crime Line tip, authorities arrested Michael Castro Rodriguez and Michael Anthony Chavez.

Baldree was gunned down August 2nd while riding his motorcycle near 50th and Indiana. Police orginally believed Baldree died from injuries in the accident. But, an autopsy revealed he had been fatally shot in the chest.

On Tuesday, authorities said they obtained enough information to issue warrants for the two suspects. That afternoon Lubbock Police arrested Michael Rodriguez near 4th Street and Avenue U.

The Texas Rangers assisted Hale Center authorities in arresting Michael Chavez while he was at work in Hale Center.
