The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office today announced the arrest of a Fresno man wanted in connection with a murder that took place this past summer in the town of Biola. Arrested was 21 year old Bee Vue.
On the afternoon of July 5th, deputies responded to the 12500 block of W “H” St regarding an injured person call. When they arrived, deputies discovered 33 year old Edward Garcia lying in an alleyway, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Garcia was transported to Community Regional Medical Center where he died as a result of his injuries.
Video surveillance of the suspects and suspect vehicle was released to the media in the hopes people with information on the murder would contact detectives.
Last month, Vue was positively identified as one of the suspects after a citizen observed the surveillance video on social media.
Shortly after, detectives learned Vue was currently in custody on an unrelated murder in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
During the subsequent investigation, Vue was positively identified as being responsible for Garcia’s death.
The Sheriff’s and District Attorney’s Offices are working closely with authorities in Oklahoma. Vue will eventually be returned to Fresno County however a date is not known at this time.
