Before his grandmother, 83-year-old Paula Virignia Carabajal-Vargas, died from her injuries in Luvianos, west of Mexico City, she identified her grandson as the attacker.

After the Mexican government requested help from the U.S., Tinoco was found working at a construction site in Austin.

He is now in the hands of customs enforcement pending hearings.
