Daniel Villegas’ biggest supporter said he is upping the ante to find the person he said is the real killer of two men in northeast El Paso back in 1993.

John Mimbela, owner of Mimbela Contractors is offering a $50,000 reward for information that leads to the person who he said gunned down Armando Lazo and Robert England.

Villegas was convicted of the crimes and after nearly 20 years behind bars, he was released on bond earlier this year when the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled he should get a new trial.

That trial date has been set for May 28, but Mimbela hopes by then Villegas’ name will be cleared.

If you want to leave a tip with Mimbela you can call him at 915-751-2761 or by e-mail at johnm@mimbela.com.
