Cesar Olalde Obituary, Death Cause – After allegedly carrying out the murder of his family in Texas, a young man is now facing the death penalty. According to an affidavit of probable cause that was obtained by Inside Edition Digital, Cesar Olalde, 18, is suspected of opening fire on his parents and two of his siblings before entering the family house armed with a firearm and sequestering himself there.
Officers were able to speak with Flieder upon his arrival, and he informed them that he and his wife had made the decision to go to the residence when the gunman’s sister, Lisbeth Olalde, did not report to work as expected. According to Flieder’s account, no one answered the door, so he and another person “forced entry into the residence to check on the family,” as stated in the affidavit. Flieder reported to the police that he observed the alleged shooter once he entered the residence.
According to the complaint, Olalde is accused of telling Joseph Flieder, a co-worker of his sister’s, that his family members are all cannibals and are attempting to eat him when Flieder arrived at the house to perform a welfare check. Olalde allegedly informed Flieder that his family members were all trying to eat him. Olalde, who is being defended by a public defender and has not yet entered a plea, has not yet responded to the charges against him. After receiving a report of an event involving “multiple fatalities and a barricaded subject,” the Nash Police Department responded to the location.
“Cesar made statements that he had killed his family because they were cannibals, and they were going to eat him,” says Officer Crag Buster in the affidavit. “Flieder informed me that Cesar made these statements,” Buster continues. “Flieder reported that the suspect pointed the firearm at him repeatedly while they were interacting with one another, and that at one point, he retrieved a knife and brandished that as well,”
