The Bowie County Sheriff’s Office will recognize two citizens for their heroic efforts in helping locate and end the horrific acts perpetrated by Hector Alejandro Pintor Aguilar. Aguilar was wanted for a murder that was committed earlier this month when he was confronted by Bowie County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Scott Lillis. Aguilar shot Lt. Lillis in the face before fleeing in a stolen truck.
Two Cass County citizens played witnessed this crime and pursued the suspect without regard to their own safety.
Their efforts are being recognized by Sheriff Jeff Neal on Friday (Aug. 19) at 10am. The ceremony will take place at the Bowie County Sheriff’s Office located at 100 North State Line Avenue Texarkana, TX 75501 (3rd floor).
We invite each of you to help us honor these two outstanding citizens of our community.
