Police Still Looking for Answers in Ybarra Murder Investigation

A family mourns as Lubbock's latest murder victim is laid to rest and his killer remains on the loose. Lubbock investigators are still searching for answers in the murder of 39-year-old Armando Ybarra.

Ybarra was found stabbed to death Friday morning and while calls are coming in, no suspects have been arrested. Armando Ybarra's death was the third murder in Lubbock in just ten days.

Family and friends gathered at the Peaceful Gardens Memorial Park Monday, to say good bye to Armando Ybarra. It was an emotional day, as so many still want answers. Flowers covered the casket of their relative and friend. Ybarra was found stabbed to death early Friday morning under a tree at Broadway and Avenue W. A passerby noticed the body, minutes later police blocked off the area, and began tracing where he had been.

"Right now investigators have several leads that their following up on today we've received some good information via crime line," Detective Tony Gribben said.

Detective Tony Gribben with the Lubbock Police Department says Ybarra was seen at the Fenix Club on Main street around 12:30, then around 2 a.m. he was seen leaving Luxor then walking through the Overton area.

"If anybody has information on his whereabouts during the last hours of his life we would certainly like to talk to them over crime line if they want to be anonymous or they can call Detective Calderon at the Lubbock Police Department with any information," Gribben said.

Ybarra would have turned 40 this week, he is a father of two and comes from a family of fourteen. If you have any information on what happened to Armando Ybarra you are urged to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
