Murder Investigation Leads Lawmen to Illegal Sport


Wilson County authorities are investigating a murder they say took place at a cockfight. Now authorities are not only trying to find the shooter, they're making arrests in the illegal cockfight.

Video of a cockfight was recovered by the Wilson County Sheriff's Department, along with equipment used during the fight such as spurs or spikes that are attached to the rooster's legs to injure its opponent.

Authorities continue to look for 26-year-old Alejandro Rico Pineda, who they say may be responsible for the death of 27-year-old Rosendo Torress Raygoza.

Authorities say Raygoza was shot and later died of multiple gunshot wounds during a cockfight in Western Wilson County Sunday afternoon.
