Garcia is wanted in the murder of 43-year-old Irene Gutierrez, of White House, Tenn., on April 25, 2007 on Grundy Road in Pulaski County. Ms. Gutierrez’s body was located on May 12, 2007 in a pond on Eddie Reynolds Road in northern Pulaski County.

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office received information from a potential witness that an assault had occurred earlier in the day at a residence at 4931 Grundy Road in Somerset on April 25, 2007. Acting on that report, Sheriff’s units went to the home and discovered evidence that an assault had taken place. Evidence uncovered in this investigation suggests that Gutierrez was fatally wounded in an assault by Garcia, according to Speck.

The investigation is continuing by the Pulaski County Criminal Investigations Division.
