Gabriel Barajas, David Barajas’ brother, had previously said his sibling had remembered the crash as a “blur” and called speculation that his brother or another family member might have been responsible for Banda’s murder “ugly.”

Barajas’ wife, Cindy, was in the truck when it was hit, along with the couple’s 8-year-old daughter and 3-month-old son.

A search of Barajas’ home found ammunition that is consistent with the bullet that killed Banda, but authorities have not located the weapon used in the shooting, Sanders said. The case is “going to be much more difficult if we don’t have a weapon,” he added.

Gunshot residue tests were done on both Barajas and Banda, and authorities are still waiting for those results, Sanders said.

Investigators also are awaiting DNA test results of some “biological material” that was found at the scene. Sanders declined to elaborate on the material that is being tested.
