Seguin PD searching for answers in double homicide

Belinda, Jeremy Sauceda shot to death on Nov. 6

SEGUIN, Texas – Seguin police continue looking for answers 10 days after Belinda Sauceda, 64, and her son, Jeremy Sauceda, 30, were found shot to death in a home in the 500 block of East Baxter Street.

Neighbors who live on the street said they don't know much about what happened in the early morning of Nov. 6. They also said they knew very little about who lived in the home where the double homicide occurred.

"For something to happen so close is very scary," said a resident, who didn't want to be identified.

"There was no reason for this to happen, and we just want someone to come forward and do the right thing," said Chief Kevin Kelso, with the Seguin Police Department.

Kelso said homicides are not only rare in Seguin, but he can't remember another double homicide in the nearly nine years since he's been serving as chief.

"Our detectives are working tirelessly," Kelso said. "They're working day and night right now, trying to come up with different ideas. We're running many different leads."

Police believe one of the victims was targeted but are unsure why the other was also killed. Kelso said another family member, who is not a person of interest, was asleep in the home at the time of the shootings.

Shots were also fired at the other side of the duplex, but no one inside was harmed.

Guadalupe County Crime Stoppers has doubled the reward, which is now up to $10,000, for information leading to an arrest or indictment in the case. Anyone with information can submit an anonymous tip by calling 877-403-8477. Tips can also be submitted online here.

Belinda and Jeremy Sauceda have been laid to rest.
