Pima County Sheriff’s Office Identifies Second Victim in Border Crossing Double Homicide

The Pima County Sheriff's office released the following public bulletin today, identifying the second victim, 40-year-old Juan Baltazar López of Guatemala, of an April 8 double homicide near the US-Mexico border. López and 39-year-old Gerardo Pérez-Ruiz of Mexico were killed by "an unknown number of subjects in camouflage clothing armed with rifles."

Here is today's statement:

On April 8, 2012, at approximately 10:35 p.m., agents from the Casa Grande Border Patrol Station, Eloy Police Department, and Coolidge Police Department responded to the Eagle Ranch located at the south end of South Night Sky Street, south of West Antares Drive, in Eloy, Arizona. The response was in reference to shots being fired at an illegal alien smuggling load. 

Upon arrival, the law enforcement agencies found one deceased person in the bed of a pickup truck and a second deceased subject in a wash northeast of the pickup truck. Several border crossers were located hiding in the brush nearby. It was determined that the incident had occurred in the Pima County Sheriff’s Department’s jurisdiction.

Homicide detectives discovered that approximately 20-30 border crossers were traveling in a pickup truck in a wash that is commonly used for human smuggling. They were ambushed by an unknown number of subjects in camouflage clothing armed with rifles. Shots were fired at the pickup truck at which time two adult males were fatally struck.

One of the victims is identified as Gerardo Perez-Ruiz (DOB 11/02/72). Mr. Perez-Ruiz was a Mexican National from San Jose Del Rincon in Toluca, Mexico. The second victim is identified as Juan Baltazar Lopez (DOB 11/30/71). Mr. Baltazar Lopez was from Guatemala.

The investigation continues.

Three Sonorans: Arizona AG Tom Horne to Speak at Fundraiser for Lawsuit Against MAS Program

We will call the AG's office tomorrow to confirm that Tom Horne did indeed attend a legal fund fundraiser as a public offcial, but for now we will post what The Three Sonorans wrote this afternoon:

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED AT THE THREE SONORANS

While the top lawyer in the state finds himself under an FBI investigation, the Attorney General of Arizona, Tom Horne, is helping raise money to support a million dollar lawsuit against TUSD-MAS’s Sean Arce and Jose Gonzales.

The John Ward million-dollar lawsuit against Sean Arce and Jose Gonzales also includes their wives’ assets, both of whom are also TUSD teachers, including Norma who is also an MAS teacher.

In addition to this million dollar lawsuit, all three of these MAS teachers may not even be working at TUSD next year as their contracts are not renewed by the top MAS-destroyer of them all, SALC’s John Pedicone.

PAGES WE LOVE: “Debbie: Say No To CCA!” Campaign by Cuéntame

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON CUÉNTAME

Why is FL Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz siding with the Corrections Corporation of America and not her constituents in Southwest Ranches? 98% of her constituents DO NOT want a new for-profit immigrant detention center!

IMMIGRANTS ARE NOT FOR SALE

We call on Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-20) to WITHDRAW her current endorsements for CCA’s project.

The Obama Administration announced a change in the priorities for detentions and deportations, to focus on real national security concerns, not on separating parents from their children or deporting DREAMers who are only seeking a better future.

It is time for ICE to stop the immigrant money making machine and tell CCA to GO AWAY from Southwest Ranches.

SIGN PETITION and tell

REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ
