Illegal immigrant Juan Emmanuel Razo Previosuly Ordered Freed by Feds … Now Suspected of Rape and Murder in Ohio
IS THIS STORY STARTING TO SOUND ALL TOO FAMILIAR … WAS THIS GUY A DREAMER TOO?
35 year old illegal immigrant Juan Emmanuel Razo is under arrest after murdering one woman, wounding another and attempting to rape a 14-year-old girl. As if that does not sound bad enough as this individual had no business being in the United States, it gets worse, if possible. U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents told Ohio sheriff’s deputies weeks ago not to detain a man who is in the U.S. illegally. On July 7, Lake County sheriff’s deputies questioned Juan Emmanuel Razo after finding him alone in a car in Painesville, about 30 miles east of Cleveland. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents told Ohio sheriff’s deputies weeks ago not to detain a man who is in the U.S. illegally because he had not committed a crime. Of course for some reason, being in the US is not longer considered being a crime. A note to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, how about now? Is it a crime to commit attempted murder, murder and rape? You have blood on your hands.
An illegal immigrant suspected of murdering one woman, wounding another and attempting to rape a 14-year-old girl was released earlier this month by Ohio sheriff’s deputies after U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents told them not to hold him, law enforcement officials said Tuesday.
Juan Emmanuel Razo, 35, was arrested Monday after a shootout with police following a crime spree police say began with the attempted rape of a girl in a park in Painesville, about 30 miles northeast of Cleveland. He later shot a woman in front of her children and murdered a 60-year-old woman in nearby Concord Township, according to police. While Razo is being held on $10 million bond, authorities are trying to explain why he was allowed to remain in the U.S. illegally after local authorities questioned him just three weeks ago.
“I have somebody who we don’t know who he is, why he is in this country, why he is here illegally and why he allegedly committed a murder,” Painesville Municipal Court Judge Michael Cicconetti thundered at Razo’s arraignment, noting the suspect has no green card, birth certificate or driver’s license.
A detective said during the arraignment that Razo has confessed to the deadly, one-day crime spree in the quiet Lake Erie town. Police began seeking Razo late Monday morning after the girl described him to police and said he had tried to rape her. Hours later, he allegedly shot a 40-year-old woman in the arm as she walked with her two children along a bike path and an hour after that, a man told park rangers he’d found his wife, 60-year-old Margaret Kostelnik, shot to death in their home near the bike path.
Razo has been charged with attempted murder in the shooting of a 40-year-old woman Monday afternoon as she walked with her two children along a bike path in Concord Township. She was shot in the arm. Just over an hour later, a man told park rangers he’d found his wife, 60-year-old Margaret Kostelnik, shot to death in their home near the bike path.
The Lake County coroner said Kostelnik was shot multiple times.
The manhunt for Razo began late Monday morning after a 14-year-old girl told police he had tried to rape her in another section of the park. The Lake County prosecutor said evidence in the slaying of Kostelnik and the attempted rape will be presented to a grand jury.
8 Year Old Madyson Middleton Was Lured to 15 Year Old Suspect’s Apartment Where She Was Raped, Strangled and Murdered
Oh dear God, Why do things like this happen to our precious children?
As if this story could not get any worse and heartbreaking. It is being reported that 8 year old Madyson Middleton, who went missing on Sunday, July 26 in Santa Cruz, CA and whose body was found later that day was raped and strangled prior to her body being hid in a trash dumpster. According to police, the girl was lured into the teen’s apartment on Sunday night where investigators found evidence that the girl was murdered inside the upstairs apartment before her body was carried down into the first floor garage then placed into a recycling bin.
Madyson Middleton, Rest in Peace
In a press conference on Monday Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel said, ”It appears that she was lured to the suspect’s apartment willingly. Additionally, we’ve determined that Maddy was murdered inside of the suspect’s apartment. She was then carried downstairs to the recycle bin.” What is wrong with people, some crimes just are more heinous than others. And its not “IF” the teen who committed this vile act could be tried as an adult, it is “WHEN” this animal is tried as an adult for this sick crime. Sorry, this 15 year old has zero hope and deserves no second chances to prey upon innocent children.
Sources say that the 8-year-old girl who vanished from her Santa Cruz apartment complex Sunday night was raped and strangled before her body was found inside a recycling bin.
Madyson Middleton’s body was discovered inside of a dumpster at the Tannery Arts Center by one of the department’s detectives Monday night. Police are not sure how long the body was inside the dumpster.
“At approximately 7:55 p.m., and this is extraordinarily heartbreaking news that I’m about to give to you, our detectives discovered the body of a young female inside of a dumpster at the complex located behind me,” said Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel on Monday night.
The mood turned hostile to outsiders as residents of the Tannery Arts Center, a unique artists’ community on the outskirts of this small beach town, came to grips with the fact that this may have been an inside job.
During a news conference on Tuesday, Police Chief Kevin Vogel told reporters that the little girl was probably dead even before she was reported missing Sunday evening.
“It appears that she was lured to the suspect’s apartment willingly,” said Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel. “Additionally, we’ve determined that Maddy was murdered inside of the suspect’s apartment. She was then carried downstairs to the recycle bin.”
Police believe all of this happened in less than an hour, right after she disappeared while riding her scooter and before police were called Sunday evening.

Lafayette Police Chief Robert Craft tells KLFY that the shooter died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The shooting happened during a showing of the movie ‘Trainwreck”
Nine people were injured in the shooting. Three of the victims are being at treated at Lafayette General Hospital, three are being treated at Lourdes Hospital, and two are being treated at Acadiana General Hospital.
Investigators say the shooting appears to be random. The shooting happened around 7:30 p.m. at the Grand Theater on Johnston Street.
Officials said it appears the gunman entered the theater alone, and there is no threat to the public.”We don’t believe there’s anybody else involved,” Louisiana State Police Col. Michael Edmonson told reporters.
Authorities have located what they believe is the gunman’s car and called in the bomb squad after “suspicious” items were seen inside, Louisiana State Police Col. Michael Edmonson told reporters.
Katie Domingue, who was in the theater, told The Daily Advertiser newspaper that “an older white man” began shooting about 20 minutes into the movie.
“He wasn’t saying anything,” Domingue said. “I didn’t hear anybody screaming, either.”
Keifer Sanders told MSNBC TV that he was in another theater when “the screen went black,” alarms sounded and the audience was shepherded out the emergency exit.
Gov. Bobby Jindal praised the actions of two teachers inside the theater who performed what he called acts of heroism as gunfire erupted: A teacher leaped to protect another, potentially saving her life, and the second managed to pull the fire alarm, he said.
“Both teachers ended up shot. The second one, the one whose life was saved, even though she was shot in the leg she had the presence of mind to pull the fire alarm to help save other lives,” he said.
James Holmes Convicted of First Degree Murder in 2012 Colorado Movie Theater Massacre in Aurora, Colorado
A jury has convicted James Holmes of First degree murder in the 2012 attack on defenseless movie goers in Aurora, Colorado where 12 people were killed. The jury also found Holmes guilty of attempted murder on all of the 140 counts against him for the 70 people wounded in the shooting. Hopefully, the next step will be that James Holmes is sentenced to death.
Jurors convicted Colorado theater shooter James Holmes on Thursday in the chilling 2012 attack on defenseless moviegoers at a midnight Batman premiere, rejecting defense arguments that the former graduate student was insane and driven to murder by delusions.
The 27-year-old Holmes, who had been working toward his Ph.D. in neuroscience, could get the death penalty for the massacre that left 12 people dead and dozens of others wounded.
Jurors took about 13 hours over a day and a half to review all 165 charges. The same panel must now decide whether Holmes should pay with his life.
Missing Maricopa, Arizona Couple, 44 Year Old Michael Careccia & 42 Year Old Tina Careccia, Bodies Found … Jose Valenzuela Arrested & Charged with First Degree Murder
The bodies of missing 44 year old Michael Careccia and his wife, 42 year old Tina Careccia have been found in Maricopa, Arizona. The bodies were found on the property of 38 year old Jose Valenzuela in a 6 foot grave. Valenzuela reportedly confessed to the crime and has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder. He is being held on a $2 million cash bond. Valenzuela reportedly shot the victims with a .22 caliber handgun. Valenzuela claims that he and the couple have been acquainted for the past two years and used methamphetamine together. Michael Careccia and Tina Careccia went missing on 6/22/15. Investigators said Valenzuela brought meth to the couple’s home the day before they went missing, Father’s Day. Then they went to Valenzuela’s home later that day and Valenzuela brandished a weapon during a fight. Of course this is the comments of a man facing two counts of first degree murder. A toxicology will have to be done to confirm any of his comments.
A missing Phoenix-area couple were killed and buried in the yard of a man who told investigators he was high on methamphetamine at the time, authorities said Thursday.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said Jose Valenzuela, 38, acknowledged killing Michael Careccia, 44, and his wife, Tina, 42.
“Essentially he confessed,” Babeu said at a news conference.
Valenzuela has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder. He is being held on a $2 million cash bond.
According to Babeu, Valenzuela was found with a .22 caliber revolver that authorities believe is the murder weapon.
Two bodies were recovered from Valenzuela’s property and identified as the couple, authorities said. The grave was not noticeable initially because the suspect had piled other debris and materials on top of it, Babeu added.
Jose Valenzuela claims a fight broke out after he had provided drugs to the couple. Read the story and see if it makes any sense or was Jose on meth at the time he confessed to authorities?
Valenzuela claimed he brought Michael and Tina Careccia the drug on June 21 and attended a Father’s Day party at the Carrecias’ home, Babeu said.
“Sometime later that evening … they went over to Valenzuela’s home, and something happened, a fight ensued and that’s when he brandished a weapon,” Babeu told reporters.
Valenzuela allegedly used a .22-caliber revolver to kill the couple. He shot Michael Careccia first, and then shot Tina Careccia sometime later, Babeu said. Investigators believe Valenzuela was high on drugs at the time of the killings.
The bodies were kept on the property, possibly in a shed, until Valenzuela borrowed a backhoe from an acquaintance and buried them in a six-foot deep grave, and their car was moved to a location away from the home, Babeu said.

Carol Bowne Stabbed to Death by Ex-Boyfriend Michael Eitel in New Jersey While Waiting for Gun Permit (VIDEO)
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GOVERNMENTS RESTRICT THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS … NEW JERSEY WOMAN STABBED TO DEATH BY EX WHILE WAITING FOR GUN PERMIT.
39 year old Carol Bowne, a New Jersey hairdresser, feared for her life and the threat of domestic violence from her ex-boyfriend, 45 year old Michael Eitel. Carol Bowne sought to protect herself by getting a restraining order, installed security cameras and an alarm system to her home and began the long process of obtaining a handgun. Carol Brown was stabbed multiple times by Eitel in the driveway of her home Wednesday night in the 100 block of Patton Avenue in Berlin Township. Bowne was transported to Virtua Hospital in Berlin where she was pronounced dead a short time later. Michael Eitel was charged with her murder. Eitel, a convicted felon, is a fugitive and being sought by a U.S. Marshals Service.
This didn’t have to happen. Thanks to New Jersey’s restrictive gun laws, Carol Browne is dead. As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, Unlike most states, New Jersey’s restrictive gun laws require a permit to purchase a handgun of which the permit process can take several months to complete. Carol Browne could not simply buy a gun for her protection, the very equalizer of a petite female hairdresser against a crazed ex-boyfriend, convicted felon. Obviously, a retraining order means nothing, security cameras and an alarm system did nothing to protect Brown and the police cannot be everywhere at all times to protect people. Do ypu know what would have given Carol Brown a fighting chance … A Sig Sauer P238 ESP, a Rugar SR22, or a Rugar SR40.
When Carol Bowne felt the threat of domestic violence, the petite hairdresser took steps to protect herself.
The Berlin Township woman got a restraining order against a former boyfriend, installed security cameras and an alarm system to her home and began the months-long process of obtaining a handgun, friends said.
But it wasn’t enough.
Bowne, 39, was stabbed to death in the driveway of her Patton Avenue home on Wednesday night.
Her former boyfriend, 45-year-old Michael Eitel, was charged with her murder. Eitel, a convicted felon, was a fugitive Thursday, being sought by a U.S. Marshals Service task force.

Two convicted murderers escaped from a maximum-security prison near the Canadian border in upstate New York, authorities said Saturday.
Richard Matt, 48, and David Sweat, 34, are dangerous and should not be approached, New York state police warned.
Sweat is serving a sentence of life without parole after he was convicted of first-degree murder for killing a Broome County sheriff’s deputy in 2002. Matt is serving a sentence of 25 years to life for kidnapping a man and beating him to death in 1997.
The two men were unaccounted for during morning bed check at the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, state police said.

David Sweat is a 5-foot-11 white male with brown hair and green eyes, weighing 165 pounds, police said. He has tattoos on his left bicep and his right fingers.
Richard Matt is a 6-foot white male with black hair and hazel eyes, according to police. He weighs 210 pounds and has tattoos including “Mexico Forever” on his back, a heart on his chest and left shoulder and a Marine Corps insignia on his right shoulder.

On June 6, at 5:45 a.m. the New York State Police received a call from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora regarding two prisoners that were unaccounted for during a 5:30 a.m. bed check. The State Police are now currently searching for the two escaped prisoners.
Richard Matt, 48 years old, a white male, 6’ tall, 210 pounds, with black hair and hazel eyes. He has tattoos on back “Mexico Forever”, a heart on his chest and left shoulder, and a marine corps insignia on his right shoulder.
David Sweat, 34 years old, white male, 5’11” tall, 165 pounds, brown hair and green eyes. He has tattoos on his left bicep and his right fingers.

Matt was transferred to Clinton Correctional on July 10, 2008.
Anyone in the Dannemora area should contact the New York State Police if they saw or heard anything early this morning, or find that they have a vehicle which is unaccounted for.
It appears the two convicted murderers who escaped from Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, NY did not use a rock hammer like Andy Dufresne in the movie, ‘The Shawshank Redemption,’ but power tools instead.
Duping guards with dummies fashioned out of sweatshirts and using power tools to drill out of their cells, the men escaped late Friday or early Saturday, emerging on the other side of the prison’s 30-foot-tall walls.
In an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America” broadcast early Sunday, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said that investigators were trying to determine how the two men managed to acquire the tools – and use them – to drill through steel walls, pipes and stone walls in fashioning a subterranean escape route without detection.
But, even more pressing, the governor said, was the manhunt.
“The first order of business is to get these killers back,” the governor said.
Baffled New York state officials announced a $100,000 reward Sunday for the capture of two murderers who used power tools to pull off an astonishing escape from a maximum-security prison near the Canadian border.
That’s $50,000 for information leading to the arrest of each fugitive: Richard Matt, 48, who kidnapped a man, beat him to death and dismembered him in 1997, and David Sweat, 34, who killed a sheriff’s deputy in 2002.
The NY Daily News is reporting that a 14 year old boy, Christopher Duran, was shot dead while walking to school in the Bronx, NY on Friday. According to reports, the 14 year old was peppered with 16 bullets by a gunman wearing a red bandana who shot him multiple times at point-blank range. 14 year old Christopher Duran cried out “Mommy! Mommy!” as he was laying dying outside a Laundromat. Duran was shot once in the head and three times in the torso at Sheridan Avenue near East 167th Street at around 8:30 a.m. in Concourse Village. The authorities believe the shooting was gang related. Duran was no stranger to police, he had already racked-up five previous arrests, including possession of a knife, assault and battery, and robbery.
A baby-faced Bronx teenager was executed on the street Friday by a gunman wearing a red bandana who blasted him multiple times at point-blank range — and without any warning.
Fourteen-year-old Christopher Duran cried out “Mommy! Mommy!” as he was laying dying outside a laundermat, sources said.
“We have video of the shooting,” a police source said. “It’s bad, real bad. The guy runs up to him and just shoots him, bang, bang, bang. It doesn’t look like he says anything to him.”
Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce confirmed the existence of the surveillance video and agreed “it’s pretty gruesome.”
The hoodie-clad gunman may have been trying to “disguise what he looks like” with the bandana, he added.
Where is Rev. Al Sharpton an the rest of the clan protesting this murder?
UPDATE I: A surveillance image of the second suspect was released by police on Friday afternoon.
Police are looking for two suspects who fled southbound on Sheridan Avenue. They are described as a black or dark-skinned Hispanic male wearing all black, and a Hispanic male wearing a light-colored hooded sweatshirt with dark sleeves, blue jeans and a red bandana covering his face, police said.
A surveillance image of the second suspect was released by police on Friday afternoon. Investigators believe the shooting is gang related, but were not immediately sure if Duran was the intended target, or if the gunmen mistook him for someone else.
“(He’s) trying to disguise what he looks like. It is a red bandana, don’t know what that means just yet. But it’s a very distinctive piece of clothing. I would hope that we put that out and somebody calls,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said.
