Police arrested a man they believe is involved in a triple homicide in several Austin homes.

The APD apprehended the suspect, Marco Antonio Garcia, 45, in a hostel near Riverside Drive on Friday. Police took Garcia, who faces one count of capital murder, to Travis County Jail.

APD identified two of the victims as Edward Stout and Carla Alvizo. Stout was found dead in his East Austin home. Police found Alvizo and the third victim, who has not been identified but is believed to be her son who was reported missing with her on Tuesday, in the suspect’s home.

Travis County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Roger Wade said Garcia used to do odd jobs for Stout. Wade said Alvizo was Garcia’s former girlfriend.
