Goliad authorities arrested two men Tuesday in connection to the death of Christoval Lee Garza, but the investigation continues.

Louis Michael Flores, 49, and Torivio Gutierrez, 41, were arrested by deputies. At least one more person is expected to be arrested, and a fourth person might have also been involved in Garza's death, Goliad County Sheriff Kirby Brumby said.

"We're unsure at this point," he said. "But there'll probably be three."

Garza, 38, was found dead July 4 on Warrick Road behind a grain elevator. Authorities said at the time Garza sustained an injury to his head, and it appeared he had slipped, fell and hit the concrete.

Later, however, they learned through a medical examiner's report that Garza's death was a homicide because he had suffered blunt force trauma to the torso.
