Video of the suspect also emerged, which Jay Glazer shared on FS1's The Herd with Colin Cowherd

On Monday, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo told the Associated Press that investigators tracked the uniform to Mexico, and the Mexican Editorial Organization claimed that "a former executive from tabloid Diario La Prensa was involved in the case."
