Christian Castro Wanted for Bond Violation

LUBBOCK, TX - An arrest warrant was issued Tuesday for Christian Castro, 21, of Lubbock by State District Judge Jim Bob Darnell. 

The judge’s order for an arrest warrant said, “The defendant, Christian Castro, has violated his conditions of bond.  The court is revoking the bond in the case.”

The order did not say specifically which condition of bond Castro violated.

Last year, Castro was charged with assault/strangulation in a domestic violence case.  He was also charged last year with retaliation for threatening the wife of a police officer when he was arrested for the domestic violence case.

Castro was able to make bond in both pending cases.

Castro became known to the public after police named him as a person of interest in the murder of Mark Ysagaga.  Ysasaga was 15 years old when he was listed as a missing person.  His body was found three years later.

Castro was never charged with murder.
