Fundraiser held for slain Baytown teens

BAYTOWN, TX (KTRK) -- Rainy weather didn't slow down a barbecue fundraiser for two Baytown teenagers killed last week.

Fork 'Em Up Cookers hosted the benefit in the parking lot of Food Town on Decker Drive in Baytown. Volunteers set up underneath three tents starting at 10am.

They were selling chicken and sausage barbecue plates for $8 each and accepting cash donations. As of 5 pm, they say more than $20,000 dollars had been raised.

"I'm very happy for all the support that everyone has given me," Sharon Morgan said, "The community came out and showed us so much love and support. I'm just happy."

Amidst all of this support, the fact remains that police are still looking for two men possibly connected to these murders.

"I'm ready for them to catch the other ones, that took my son's life and Alex's life," Morgan said.

The bodies of Jarvis Morgan and Alex Chavez were found in Anahuac last week. Over the weekend, The Chambers County Sheriff's Office charged Richard Gonzalez, 21, and Valentin Jose Lazo Jr., 27 with capital murder. Investigators are still looking for two other men in connection to this case, Brandon Flores and Juan Chavez.
