Kirsters Baish| A criminal illegal alien has been accused of violently beheading a 13-year-old special needs child. The girl had reportedly seen him and another man assault her grandmother using a knife. They then left the woman to die in a graveyard, as explained by multiple news reports.
On Friday, testimony delivered in a courtroom in Huntsville, Alabama seemed to prove that the slain child’s grandmother had been involved in some way with the Sinaloa cartel.
AL.com writes, “Just days before Oralia Mendoza and her granddaughter, Mariah Lopez, were killed, Mendoza and three others went to pick up a batch of methamphetamine, Investigator Stacy Rutherford told a judge. After one of her drug cohorts became suspicious, the situation turned deadly.” The site goes on, “Israel Palomino, 34, and Yoni Aguilar, 26, are charged with two counts each of capital murder in the slayings of Mendoza and Lopez.”
AL.com explains that Palomino, Mendoza, Aguilar, and a woman by the name of Leticia Garcia went to receive a quarter kilo of methamphetamine on June 2nd. They were traveling to Norcross, Georgia for the drugs, which is a small city located northeast of Atlanta.
The site explains that it seems something went wrong at some point during the trip. Rutherford explained that Mendoza and Garcia were the ones who had the links to the cartel. Palomino felt that there may be a setup involved.
The men claimed that they would be taking the grandmother and her child somewhere safe, however, they took them to the cemetery where Aguilar claims that Mendoza and Palomino had an argument over the deal. Palomino ended up killing Mendoza after the argument. Authorities explain that Mendoza died of “sharp force trauma caused by a knife.”
Palomino and Aguilar took Lopez to a hidden area. Aguilar claims that Palomino forced him to kill the child.
Conservative Tribune writes:
WAAY-TV reports that two knives were found by investigators, one under Aguilar’s mattress and one under Palodino’s. They’re suspected to be the murder weapons. Investigators have also linked both men to the killings through their cellphones, since they pinged in the area of the killings when they happened.
District Judge Claude Hundley decided during the hearing that there was more than enough evidence to move the case to a grand jury. Both men are being slapped with capital murder charges.
The Daily Wire reports that neither men are American citizens. Aguilar is an illegal immigrant, while Palodino is currently in the U.S. on a green card. These monsters are the very reason that President Donald Trump and his administration are so set on their zero tolerance policy when it comes to illegal immigration. We have got to do everything we can to keep our citizens safe from men like these. If they would behead and innocent 13-year-old child with special needs, there’s no telling what they’re capable of.
