RODRIGUEZOn Saturday, January 25, 2014 Allie Rodriguez, age 20, , Mikey Kowis, Robert Guerro and Jessica Binnion along with several other friends went to the Big Texas Dance Hall on Holzwarth Road in Spring to see a concert. When the concert ended they started to leave.

As the girls stood next to the pickup, the young men were chatting a short distance away. That is when Tito Juarez and his friend Shawn Bingham got into a Ford F-150 pickup and approached the girls. As they talked to them, Jessica notified Kowis that the two guys in the Ford were acting “Creepy”.

Kowis and Guerro approached the vehicle and asked the driver who had his window open if there was a problem. Without a response they walked to the passenger side and asked Bingham the same thing. Bingham responded by pulling a knife.  Juarez then sped off in reverse.

According to the passenger Bingham and the door man of the club, Juarez gunned the truck speeding forward and rammed into the group of four. Juarez then sped off.

When Cypress Creek EMS arrived Allie Rodriguez lie dead in the parking lot with massive head injuries, Binnion lay unconscious with an injury to her head and two black eyes. Rodriguez’s longtime boyfriend Kowis was thrown from the front fender landing feet from his brother. He suffered a broken hand and multiple injuries. Guerro suffered abrasions from the truck striking him.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office interviewed the door man at the club. He stated he saw a Hispanic male get into the drivers seat of the black Ford F-150. When showed several photos he was able to identify both driver and passenger.

Allie’s sister, Erica Vasquez was at her home in Grangerland. She had seen the story about the incident but didn’t think anything of it. A short time later Harris County Sheriff’s Department Investigators came to her front door giving her the sad news about her sister. They then traveled to South Houston to tell Allie’s mother.

Later in the day Harris County Investigators arrested Tito Juarez and after charging him with murder, transported him to the Harris County Jail where he remains on a $50,000 bond.

On Thursday Harris County District Judge Jim Wallace assigned former Harris County District Judge and now attorney James Barr as Juarez defense attorney.

Saturday family and friends gathered at the Living Word World Outreach Church and Loop 336 in Conroe. A memorial service was held for Rodriguez. She then joined her father who died five years ago and was entombed at Conroe Memorial Park with McNutt Funeral Directors officiating.

At Conroe Memorial Park friends and family signed Rodriguez’s white casket with colored markers. Many wrote good-bye’s, poems, and last words. Live butterflies and balloons were then released along with a single white dove.

Allie’s sister Erica was able to retrieve many photos from Allie’s computer  and put them together as a memorial. She also found several pages in a spiral notebook with a “Bucket List” created by Allie. Looking at her bucket list she was a very giving person, not wanting just for herself but wanting to help others.

    Very upset over this. Superb video–superb coverage. Felt better after viewing this article because I realize this family knows about more than just this earthly physical dimension of life. Wish I knew the name of artist and song “you are beautiful and sacred–meant for so much more than this world” because it’s perfect in explaining this. The sun goes down every day and is reborn the next morning, the plants ‘die’ in winter and are born again in the spring. God gave us nature as an example to us of how things work. May this beautiful woman rest in peace.
