Lubbock police responded to a call at 6 p.m. on Friday, January 10th, 2020 of someone being shot in the 1500 block of 25th Street.

Officers arrived on scene and located the deceased victim, 67-year-old Ronald Sepeda, in the underground cellar of the home.

Police believe that the homeowner had moved the body from inside the residence to the cellar to conceal it.

Thirty-one-year-old Calvin Joe Brown Jr. was arrested for Tampering with a Corpse and booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center on a $100,000 bond.

According to KAMC News, Brown shot Sepeda in self-defense, but is still being charged after admitting to using chemical cleaning agents to clean up the blood and move the body.
