Two months have passed since the untimely death of an El Paso man, and his family continues their relentless search for answers, Your Content has learned.
On April 29th, El Paso Police responded to a vehicle collision in a Northeast neighborhood, only to discover that the driver, 27-year-old Daniel Antonio Mergil, had sustained fatal gunshot wounds.
Despite immediate medical attention, Mergil tragically succumbed to his injuries.
Left behind are Mergil’s wife and young daughter, who remember him as an exceptional father and a radiant presence in any room.
However, his family remains haunted by the inexplicable loss, trapped in a nightmare that persists even after two months.
Elena Mergil, the victim’s aunt, shared the family’s profound grief and longing for closure.
The family’s anguish is compounded by the lack of information provided by the police regarding the progress of the investigation and the scarcity of updates on potential leads.
Their main source of information has been the media, as they receive only fragments of details from the internet or the local community.
Frustrated by the limited support, they yearn for justice and peace.
Desperate for answers, the family seeks to understand the circumstances surrounding Mergil’s tragic demise.
They plead to comprehend the motivations behind such a violent act against an innocent person who had a loving family.
Their desire for closure and the restoration of their shattered lives is overwhelming.
Law enforcement suspects that Mergil was shot in the vicinity of the 6100 block of Ameen Dr., near a U-Haul storage facility.
Recent efforts by investigators have elevated the murder to the Crime of the Week, hoping to gather new leads that may shed light on the case.
Despite their immense pain, the family expresses a willingness to forgive; however, this forgiveness is contingent upon the responsible parties coming forward and taking accountability.
The weight of the tragedy is magnified by the fact that those who caused this irreparable harm still have the privilege of being with their own families, while Mergil’s family will forever be denied such solace.
The family implores anyone with information to immediately contact Crime Stoppers of El Paso at (915) 566-8477.
Their plea for closure and justice echoes throughout the community, urging individuals to come forward and help bring peace to a grieving family deprived of their beloved Daniel Mergil, according to ABC7.
