VICTORIA (KIII NEWS) - Authorities believe they have found the man responsible for the fire that destroyed a Victoria mosque.
A federal judge in Corpus Christi denied bail for Marq Perez Thursday after hearing testimony that officials are investigating his potential involvement in a hate crime. Perez was originally arrested on a charge of having an incendiary device.
The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports that Perez is suspected of burglarizing the mosque on Jan. 22 and then again on Jan. 28, when he set it on fire.
