America's Most Wanted to Air Local Case


7-18-06 - It's been more than two years since four people were murdered in a north Texas home, but now police and victims' families hope the national exposure of a TV show could help catch the killers.

McKinney police say they believe they know who shot and killed four people in an east McKinney home back in March of 2004, but they say they can't do anything about it yet.

Now, they have a chance to take the case to the entire country in hopes of solving the crime.

Time stopped for 17-year-old Matthew the night of March 13 2004, and today, time is all his mother can think about it.

Matt was a football player at McKinney North High School. He was talented, smart, and handsome. He wanted to play college ball, and then someday coach.

But those dreams came to a violent end when Matthew and his teammate Austin York were shot with an acquaintance, Mark Barbosa, and his aunt Rosa in the Barbosa's McKinney home.

Basilia Barbosa lives in the home where her sister in law and step-son were killed. Since the murders, the victims families have pushed for answers, and this weekend will push the case into the national spotlight. America's Most Wanted will tell their story.

Since the killings, McKinney Police arrested and charged three men, but they were released last year. Police say they believe they know who was behind the killings. They just need enough information to convince a jury. They hope airing the story on America’s Most Wanted will help bring in new leads.
