Divimara Lamar Nava, aged 53, was taken into custody after reportedly hiding Francisco Oropeza, the suspected shooter, in a residence near Conroe, Texas. He was ultimately discovered by authorities from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Rand Henderson said Lamar Nava had previously denied knowing Oropeza’s whereabouts.

Despite law enforcement identifying Lamar Nava as Oropeza’s spouse, jail records indicate that she is single and resides at the same address as him. As per online jail records, she is presently detained at Montgomery County Jail on a felony charge of impeding the capture or prosecution of a known criminal, with a bond set at $250,000.

According to San Jacinto County District Attorney Todd Dillon, authorities suspect that while Lamar Nava was aiding Oropeza, she was also communicating with investigators. 

At Lamar Nava’s hearing to establish probable cause, a prosecutor asserted that she had admitted to relaying a message from Oropeza to his local cousins, requesting their assistance in facilitating his escape from the country, which they declined to do.

According to Dillon, Domingo Castilla, an acquaintance of Oropeza, was also detained on Tuesday in the area where the shooting occurred. 

Although Castilla was taken into custody on suspicion of possessing marijuana, authorities anticipate charging him with additional crimes, such as assisting in Oropeza’s escape.

Bond for Castilla was established at $5,000 by Justice of the Peace Judge Randy Ellisor in San Jacinto County.
