The man is accused of killing 3 people while filming on Facebook live

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – Four bail jumping charges were filed against Camilo Morejon, 48, who is accused of filming himself drinking and driving on Facebook Live moments before causing a crash that killed three people, according to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.

Officials said Morejon, who had been ordered to remain under house arrest, is no longer home and is now considered a wanted fugitive.

The judge had previously lowered Morejon’s bond twice -- It was ultimately reduced from $275,000 to $70,000, according to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. Morejon was then released on bail and failed to appear before the judge last week. His bail was then revoked.

Morejon was charged with three counts of intoxication manslaughter and one count of intoxication assault in 2020 following a fatal crash which left Morejon’s three passengers dead and another driver wounded. Morejon was seen drinking and driving on Facebook Live moments before he crashed into a pickup truck in the 12200 block of FM 529 near Jersey Village.

Morejon faces two to 20 years in prison for each charge of intoxication manslaughter and two to 10 years in prison for each bail jumping charge.

“When someone kills three people while bragging about drinking and driving, they need to face justice,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said. “We owe it to the victims. We owe it to the community.”

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to Morejon’s capture. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-8477.
