An investigation was completed and resulted in Oliver I. Tzarax-Lopez, 21, being identified as a suspect in this case. He was criminally charged on August 5, 2020, the Daily Voice reported.

Tzarax-Lopez remained at large for more than three weeks after the alleged murder, but he was arrested at a diner in New York City on Aug. 27, 2020, authorities said.

Recently, a Union County Grand Jury returned a three-count indictment on Tzarax-Lopez, officials said.

Tzarax-Lopez was officially charged with first-degree murder, as well as two related second-degree weapons offenses in connection to the death of Agudelo, police said.
