Stephan Aceves' family says they are stressed after few new details came from a press conference Tuesday about how their family member was killed.
PASCO, WA – Stephan Aceves' family says they are stressed after few new details came from a press conference Tuesday about how their family member was killed.
The 28 year-old Aceves is dead after police say homeowner Rudy Ontiveros shot him thinking he was an intruder.
We now know that contrary to other media reports not only was Aceves in the home when he was shot, but police say he was well into the home. We also now can confirm thanks to police that there was some form of verbal exchange between the two men before the shooting. As to how exactly the door was opened or whether there is evidence to point towards some kind of aggression on Aceves' part, the county prosecutor says he has not yet received the reports of evidence that can be released.
"I was really hoping to get more information and all I just want it fairness that's all I want. Whether it's going to be here on earth or up in heaven. That's where my son is right now," said Alfredo Aceves, the now deceased Stephan's father. "Just do a thorough investigation please. That's all I ask. Justice, that's all."
According to the county coroner, the death certificate does list multiple gunshots to the head and upper body ruling this a homicidal death. Police are just not yet able to confirm whether it was a justified one. They say the thorough investigation the family hopes for is just beginning.
