Closure in Murder Case

Suspect Facing Murder Charge

San Antonio, TX – Zachary Earl Duncan, 29, was arrested early this morning by members of the United States Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF), in San Antonio, TX. An arrest warrant was issued pursuant to an investigation by the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD), where it is alleged that Duncan committed murder.

Yesterday afternoon, LSFTF officers initiated an investigation in locating and apprehending Duncan. Early this morning, through investigative efforts, task force officers determined that Duncan was hiding out in a mobile home located in the 6700 block of Walzem Road, on the northeast side of San Antonio. While conducting surveillance, task force officers observed Duncan drive into the mobile home park. When the vehicle came to a stop, task force officers approached the vehicle, identified themselves, removed Duncan from the vehicle, and took him into custody without incident.

On April 30, 2015, the deceased body of a young woman was discovered by a passerby near the 8700 block of East Evans Road, on the northeast side of San Antonio. Reports stated that the woman suffered from one gunshot wound to the head. After a thorough investigation by SAPD Homicide detectives, an arrest warrant was issued for Duncan in connection with the murder.

Duncan is currently being held in custody at the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, states, “No matter how long it takes, our task force officers will continue to work day and night to apprehend these violent offenders and finally bring them to justice. This was truly a sad incident, but my hope is that this arrest will bring some closure to the victim’s family.”
