Lufkin police arrested Michael “Mike” Rodriguez on Saturday in connection to the slayings of two elderly Lufkin residents.

Rodriguez, 28, of Lufkin, was taken into custody in the 2200 block of North Raguet Street after officers located him using information from a Crime Stoppers tip, according to a report from Jessica Pebsworth, city of Lufkin communications director.

Rodriguez is facing capital murder charges in the deaths of Carolyn Price, 68, and Cecil Sheffield, 77, who were found dead in their home around 2 p.m. Thursday by a family member, according to Pebsworth. Further investigation led detectives to name Rodriguez as the suspect, she said.
