Three people have been charged with capital murder in relation to the kidnapping and fatal shooting of an Odessa man, according to a police affidavit.
ODESSA, TX -- Three people have been charged with capital murder in relation to the kidnapping and fatal shooting of an Odessa man, according to a police affidavit.

Liz Hernandez, 34, and Brian Hernandez, her 17-year-old son, were arrested in connection to the murder of Sean Lamb, who was found dead inside a blue Ford Expedition left in an alley on Neta Place.

On Thursday, Homeland Security located and arrested a third suspect, Stacey Castillo, 39, in Marfa.

In a press conference following the arrest, Corporal Steve LeSueur said they continue to look for other suspects. The Odessa Police Department is now asking for the public's help locating Ruben Hernandez, 33, and Noe Galan, 34.

Police believe that the actions of the five, and possibly other suspects, led to the kidnapping and shooting of Lamb. Police also say there is a large amount of drugs involved in this case.

According to the affidavits, it all began when Liz Hernandez accused Lamb of stealing her black Chevrolet Tahoe and drugs, the reports said.

Police also said that Lamb lived with Liz and Brian Hernandez for a short period of time.

During her interview with police, Liz Hernandez said she and other unnamed people went to confront Lamb about the car and the drugs.

She said three of the people who were with her forced Lamb into the car, and said that multiple people were armed, the report said. Then they drove away with Lamb in the front passenger seat.

Police believe multiple suspects kidnapped and intended to hurt Lamb, the report said. Odessa Police confirmed on Wednesday that Lamb was shot multiple times.

The investigation remains ongoing and police continue to search for multiple suspects.
