The man's 12-year-old son told Conroe police that two armed men came into their house demanding $8,000 they said the father owed them.

According to all the details surrounding the man's death keeps the case under study, three defendants in the kidnapping case were exacted in the court Friday, in the morning, in a case that policemen say involved a home invasion, ransom demands and the escape of a child. The kidnapping victim, whose name wasn't immediately released, died later at a hospital. The men demanded money, bound the child and Villadares and began searching the house for valuables. The man also told the uncle that the house was being watched and they would kill his brother if they discovered that police were involved, court records said.

Smith stressed there was no indication any of the suspected kidnappers actually had cartel connections.
