Morales is a convicted felon who was out on parole at the time. Morales was located and interviewed by police where he confessed to shooting and killing Vasquez.

Morales is currently incarcerated and an arrest warrant charging him with murder, criminal possession of a firearm, criminal use of a firearm and tampering with evidence was approved Tuesday.

His bond was set at $1 million and his warrant will be served at his next court appearance.
