Officer Suarez was shot and killed after he and his partner responded to a silent alarm at a business. His partner reported seeing a burglar leave the opposite end of the building and then Officer Suarez radioed that he was in a foot pursuit. After hearing a gunshot his partner located his body in the common area of an apartment complex several blocks away. The suspect was later arrested and possessed Officer Suarez's duty weapon, which he stolen during the assault. The suspect had stolen the pistol used to shoot Officer Suarez twice from the same location. It had previously been recovered and was returned before the suspect stole it again. The suspect was originally sentenced to death but had the sentence reduced to life on appeal in 1987.

Rest in Peace Officer Rosalin Suarez Jr... Thank You for your brave Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of McAllen, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and the men and women who now serve. I also Pray that while your murderer did not escape punishment here on this earthly realm that the hounds of hell will soon be gnawing on his sorry bones. May nothing but thorn bushes and weed grow on their graves. May his sorry soul be consumed by the lake of fire.

Amen.
