2 additional suspects arrested in connection to Texas City woman's death, police say
Updated: 10:56 PM, August 15, 2018



TEXAS CITY, Texas - Two people were arrested Wednesday south of San Antonio in connection to a Texas City woman's death, officials said.

Investigators took 19-year-old Cory McCray and a 17-year-old believed to be Cindy Esquivel in Atascosa County Wednesday evening.

Last week, police said they found the body of 33-year-old Lucy Bertrand in her home and that she had been stabbed and beaten to death.



Investigators already had one suspect in custody, 37-year-old Amy Medina. She is currently charged with murder and is being held on a $250,000 bond.

According to court documents, Medina was the mastermind behind a robbery at Bertrand's home. Court documents say that Medina suspected Betrand of stealing money from her bank account.

Documents also say McCray beat Bertrand with a pistol and Esquivel allegedly stabbed her. Both will be held on a $250,000 bond when booked in the Galveston County Jail.

2 teens arrested in killing of Texas City woman in revenge plot over stolen credit card
Updated 12:56 pm CDT, Thursday, August 16, 2018



Two teenagers were arrested in South Texas on Wednesday in connection with the killing of a Texas City woman that police say was part of a revenge plot over a stolen bank card.

Cory McCray, 19, and Cindy Esquivel, 17
, were taken into custody by Texas Department of Public Safety troopers on Interstate 37 between McCoy and Pleasanton in Atascosa County, south of San Antonio.

Texas City police officials did not name Esquivel when announcing the arrests via press release, but a police complaint released by the Galveston County district attorney's office identified her.

Murder warrants had been issued for McCray and Esquivel in connection with the death of Lucia Bertrand inside a home on Vance Avenue last week. Bertrand, 33, of Texas City, was found dead inside her Texas City home on Aug. 9.



Amy Lynne Medina, 37, identified as Esquivel's mother, was arrested the day after Bertrand was found and charged with murder in Bertrand's death.

Medina allegedly orchestrated a plan to rob and kill Bertrand as revenge for Bertrand having used Medina's bank card without permission.

Relatives and acquaintances interviewed by Texas City Police detectives, including Esquivel's biological father, Daniel Reyes, say Medina plotted with McCray and Esquivel to break into Bertrand's home on the night of Aug. 8 while Medina was there with her to give the appearance of a home invasion.
