Jared James Dicus, 21, was charged with the murder of his 21-year-old wife Anggy Diaz who he just married last October 2022. According to the Waller County Sheriff’s Office, police were called out to the home around 4:18 p.m. by family members. Sheriff Troy Guidry says the victim was found inside a second home behind a residence in the 200 Block of Oak Hollow Boulevard west of Magnolia.

The documents stated, “what appeared to be the head of the victim is in the shower.” According also to court files, Diaz was found on the floor near the bed full of blood with multiple stab wounds in her back.

Waller County Sheriff Troy Guidry says Dicus’s father hurriedly called the police when they found the victim. “The suspect addressed the parents and when they saw something wasn’t feeling right, they immediately go over to the house that they were living in, and that’s when they found what they found,” he says.

A recent video captured the moments after police say Dicus committed the murder.
