California Dad’s Revenge Killing
Louie Sixto Lopez, 52 years old, was accused of killing another man as revenge after the death of his 16-year-old daughter. In a news release on Dec. 5 from the Alamance County District Attorney’s Office, Lopez blamed Reynaldo Cantu’s son for his own daughter’s death in October.
Danielle Lopez, his 16-year-old daughter, was killed on October 3 while crossing Interstate 680 in San Jose as a pedestrian, according to a report from the California Highway Patrol in the East Bay Times.
Lopez Went To Cantu’s Home
On Dec.2, Lopez arrived at Cantu’s home in Newark shortly after 2 p.m. There, he found Cantu sitting inside his parked car in the driveway. Prosecutors said that Lopez was armed when he went into Cantu’s home and confronted the man about the whereabouts of his son.
Lopez said that Cantu’s son killed his daughter before shooting him twice, according to the prosecutors. Cantu was, later on, pronounced dead at the scene. Fortunately, the shooting incident was recorded by a ring camera attached to the garage of Cantu’s home, according to a report published in Sacramento Bee.
Images from the surveillance camera were matched to Lopez’s past mugshots, and his Washington Driver’s License photograph, the probable cause statement stated, in order to identify Lopez as a suspect in the shooting.
