Bernardo Gutierrez-Morales (10580)

6/15/2015: Officers asked a man to look out for a fugitive. Days later, Morales, violating parole after a sexual assault conviction, received the man's permission to pick pecans from his grove. The man called police. The responding officer shot Morales fatally in the chest, saying that he attacked him with a knife. Two years later, private investigator Roy Davis Jr. helped Morales's family to make a case that Morales was unarmed when he was shot and that a knife not found at the scene was listed as evidence in the shooting, the first in El Paso that year.
