A worker at Tropical Motel in the 4800 block of North Shepherd in Houston entered the room to clean it Tuesday when they made the gruesome discovery, reported by News 92 FM.

The Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office said a deputy constable stopped a car driving the wrong way that morning. The car reportedly belonged to the man found dead in the motel bathtub, Carlos Villatoro. Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office spokesman J.C. Mosier told Chron the driver was driving northbound on the southbound North Freeway frontage road near Crosstimbers.

The teenager driving the car – identified as 17-year-old Carlos F. Mercado – allegedly had Villatoro’s wallet, driver’s license, and cellphone.

Mercado reportedly told the officer who pulled him over that he had been attacked and stabbed by three men at the motel, and he stabbed one of them in defense. The deputy called paramedics and police who said they found a man dead at the motel.

Houston police said Mercado and Villatoro drove to the motel and checked into a room together. At some point, they got into a physical altercation that turned deadly.

Mercado allegedly beat, choked and stabbed Villatoro before taking off in his car.

According to police, Mercado was found with bloody clothes and while he was detained for questioning, confessed to his role in the killing.

Houston City Jail records showed the suspect was being held without bond Wednesday pending formal charges.

      How do you know? Maybe he’s a US citizen.

      Do you say “another white boy” every time one shoots up his classmates?

      • Daz World

        No wet-back lover, I say ‘white-trash’ in those instances. Whiny Biotch

        • magister ludi

          So why not say “latino trash”?

          So, if someone with a Spanish name commits a crime, you assume he’s a “Dreamer” and use his actions to denigrate all “Dreamers”. But, if it’s a white, Christian conservative, his actions do not reflect upon the group.

          “One black guy’s a gang member, so all are gang members. One latino commits murder, so all latinos are murderers. One Asian is a bad driver, so all are bad drivers. One man commits rape, so all men are rapists. One woman thinks you’re hot (after several days on a meth binge, of course), so all women think you’re hot”

          Your command of logic astonishes me.

          Ever hear of the “enumeration of favorable circumstances”? No. Look it up.

      Yes, I understand. You’re devastated because you and your fellow xenophobes have lost and your sons will later have Mexican boyfriends.
