Lubbock, Texas: Over the weekend police were called to a storage unit where Lubbock Fire Rescue had extinguished a fire and discovered a body.
At around noon on Sunday, February 12, while police were investigating at the storage unit, police were also dispatched to a residence where three individuals reported that 32-year-old Allan Montemayor had told them that he had "f***ed up" and made statements about a body and a fire in his storage unit.
Investigators reviewed security footage at the storage unit where the fire had broken out and determined that Montemayor had entered the unit with another individual. After approximately an hour and 20 minutes, Montemayor exited the unit, locked it, and left.
When officers asked Montemayor when he had last been at the storage unit, which he evidently used as a "shop," he initially stated that he had not been there since the evening of Friday, February 11.
When confronted with the security footage and asked once more what had happened, "he just kind of shrugged and said, 'Isn't it apparent?'" according to an arrest warrant seen by KCBD.
Montemayor told investigators that he had gone to the restroom, and when he exited, he saw that the 21-year-old Cypress Ramos had started a fire.
Montemayor alleged that Ramos, who reportedly identified as a female, "came at him with a bat and from that point, 'it was either me or him.'"
Police told Montemayor that they would need his clothing for testing and need to take some pictures of him. After he removed his pants, officers noticed what appeared to be blood on his legs.
Samples were taken for further testing.
It was then that Montemayor is said to have told officers that he believed a song had told him to kill Ramos, and that he believed Ramos had also heard a song instructing him to kill Montemayor.
Montemayor is being held in the Lubbock County Detention Center on charges of murder and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond has been set at $500,000.
The investigation remains ongoing.
