UPDATE: BCPD arrests man in murder to Austin

A 27-year old man was taken into custody in Fort Bend and arrested for the murder to Tydarean Austin aka Kobi Austin.

Abdul-Muhaymin Zaaki Adams, 27 was later transported to the Matagorda County Jail where he was booked in on one charge of murder and one charge of unlawful possession of firearm.

Austin’s death was one of the three cases spotlighted by Bay City Police Chief Robert Lister during a press conference Thursday, May 7.

The case is still very active and more arrests are likely.  Detective Reyna Perez is the lead investigator on the case.  Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to contact the Bay City Police Department at 979-245-8500.
