“EL PASO, Texas — El Paso police may be one step closer to solving the city’s latest killing.
Michael Herrera, 26, has been booked into the El Paso county jail and charged with murder in the death of Cesar Torres, 39. He was being held in lieu of $125,000 bond, police said.”

“As we reported first Thursday – people who live in the neighborhood on West Missouri Street tell us Torres was a transvestite and would often go out in women’s clothes.”
