Houston Man Charged With Quinlan Woman’s Murder

Last April, authorities arrested a suspect in the murder of a Quinlan woman at a Royse City motel. Friends filed a missing person report, and detectives later determined that the suspect entered a room with Reynaldo Chavez of Houston. The video showed Chavez leaving with what appeared to be a body and putting it in the car, and they later found Martinez’s body in Houston. Rockwall Police arrested Chavez on June 25 on unrelated charges. Royse City Police and Texas Rangers later arrested him for murder, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Unlawfully Carrying a Weapon, and Theft of a Firearm.

BLUEBERRY PIE – THAT’S SOMETHING WE CAN ALL CELEBRATE!

You won’t find any locally grown sparklers in The Shed, but we do have sweet, juicy blueberries straight from the fields of Quitman, TX. While many of the fruits we enjoy today were introduced from other regions, blueberries are native to North America. These blue beauties are a truly American delight! As we celebrate our community in the land that we love, we can go the extra mile by supporting local agriculture. The blueberries in The Shed have travelled only 87 miles from field to market. Compared to the national average of 1,500 miles traveled for fresh produce, we think these blueberries are one sweet choice! Not only will these berries last much longer, but the flavor is unbeatable for baking and snacking. Be sure to buy 2 pints – one for the 4th of July party, and another for snacking on the way home!
