SAN ANGELO,TX – Jose Trevino has been arrested and charged with the murder of Jason Garivay.
According to court documents, on June 19th, 2021, police responded to Shannon Hospital in regards to a possible stabbing victim. Investigators were contacted to the scene and learned the incident happened in the parking lot of the Penny Tap House, located at 2312 College Hills Boulevard.
After speaking with officers, the investigator learned that this was not a stabbing, but an assault by an unknown suspect. While on the scene, Garivay “coded”, which means he went into cardiopulmonary arrest, but was resuscitated. There were indications that Garivay went 10 minutes without oxygen to his brain.
The investigators spoke with several witnesses, two of whom provided a description of the assault and the suspect. The witnesses told the investigator that Garivay was knocked to the ground and was stomped several times in the head and face area. This kind of attack would match the injuries seen on Garivay at the hospital.
After the assault, the suspect left in a vehicle with another individual from the scene and Garivay was taken to the hospital by another individual.
Investigators spoke with another witness and reviewed surveillance footage from the area of the assault. Footage showed an escalating issue between Garivay and the suspect which ended with both men in the parking lot. The footage also showed Garivay had no problem leaving but being unable to walk after the assault.
Due to the investigation, review of security footage, witness statements, and other factors, investigators positively identified Jose Trevino based on records from the Penny Tap House as well as physical description.
Garivay passed away on June 27th, 2021 and due to the nature of his assault and his death, a warrant was issued for Trevino.
Trevino was arrested and booked into the TGCDF at 7:15 p.m. on July 8th, 2021 and is currently being held on $1,000,000.00 bond.
