The two suspects, Kvaughandre Presley and Gabriela Liliana Torres were located and arrested for the murder of Patricia Eifert. Patricia was murdered inside her daughter’s home on July 27.
On July 27, just before 7:00 pm, Garland Police responded to a gunshot wound call in the 700 block of Briar Way. When officers arrived, they observed the victim, Patricia Eifert, inside the residence suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Video surveillance showed two suspects, a male and female, arrive in a black Ford Fusion behind the residence in the ally. Both subjects began burglarizing parked vehicles and also entered the residence through the garage where the victim was murdered.
Officers learned from the family that the victim was the mother of a couple who had recently purchased the house, and was helping them move in. While inside the residence the victim was shot multiple times.
After committing the murder, it is believed the suspects continued their burglary spree in the neighborhood. While driving in the 5100 block of Barcelona Drive they crashed into a parked vehicle. It was reported that Presley pointed a handgun at the owner of the vehicle further committing another aggravated felony offense.
Detectives identified Presley and Torres as the people responsible for the capital murder of Eifert and murder warrants were obtained for their arrests. This morning, July 29, both Presley and Torres were located and arrested in Dallas with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Violent Crimes Task Force.
Both suspects are currently in the Garland Detention Center. The bonds are set at $1,000,000 for Presley and $750,000 for Torres.
All indications in the investigation show that this was a random act of violence and that the suspects were not known to the victim.
This investigation was a joint effort utilizing multiple resources in identifying and locating these two capital murder suspects. We want to thank everyone who assisted in getting these violent offenders off the streets.
The mugshot for Torres will be released once it’s available.
