After the crime, investigators viewed Mosquera's security system and saw that he came home with another person just before 11:20 p.m. the night before.

They also learned that Mosquera's 2017 gray Toyota Tacoma had been stolen. The truck was later found abandoned on the side of Interstate 540 near the US 64 exit in Knightdale.

But no suspect was found -- that is, until now. DPD announced that on June 30, Greene County deputies took a Wilson man into custody.

Jonquel Marquis Tabron, 31, was arrested in the 40 block of Margaret Drive in Snow Hill. Tabron was charged with first-degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon.
