Three suspects arrested in Farmersville homicide case, city’s second of ’10

FARMERSVILLE — Police arrested three suspects in connection with a homicide that occurred in Farmersville earlier this month.

On April 4 around 4 a.m., Farmersville police responded to a report of shots being fired in the 700 block of West Teddy. When officers arrived on the scene, they found the victim lying near the sidewalk. While attempting to render medical aid, officers discovered that the victim had been shot with an unknown caliber weapon, according to the Farmersville Police Department. The victim died on the scene from his injuries.

The Farmersville, Woodlake, and Exeter police departments worked together to gather information about the shooting death of the victim, identified as Aising Saesee, 25, of Farmersville. Based on their investigation, they arrested three suspects: Andrew Estrada, 20; Rodolfo Christopher Navarro, 22; and Daniel Martinez, 30. All of the suspects are from Farmersville.

“We believe a motive has been established, however due to the continuing ongoing investigation, it is not being revealed at this time,” said Farmersville police Sgt. John Olmos.

Olmos said that police are still investigating any and all leads to ensure that there is nobody else involved in the case.

This marks the second homicide in Farmersville this year. The first occurred on Feb. 7, which was Super Bowl Sunday. There were no homicides the previous year, Olmos said.

“Overall, we do not get many homicides; however, one homicide is one too many,” he said.
