TRUTH: Illegal Wanted for Murder of 5 Had Been Deported 3 Times

Manhunt Underway

( – A Mexican man, who had been expelled from the United States three times, is now being wanted for the murder of five individuals, a Texas sheriff has revealed.

The last of the three occasions in which 38-year-old murder suspect Francisco Oropeza was deported by the United States back to Mexico was in 2016, Breitbart Texas reported.

Sheriff Greg Capers of San Jacinto County told the news outlet that Oropeza is now wanted for the murder of five citizens of Honduras, the youngest of them an 8-year-old boy, which was committed Friday night.

It remains unclear how Oropeza managed to come to the United States for a fourth time after having been deported thrice by offices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The agency was yet to comment on the Mexican national’s illegal immigration history.

Sheriff Capers said a multi-agency task force was searching for Oropeza after he allegedly gunned down the five Hondurans living next door to him in Cleveland, Texas, a town of about 7,500 people in East Texas.

The report reveals that the Mexican illegal began shooting at the Hondurans because one of them had complained since Oropeza had fired a rifle outside before midnight on Friday.

Capers said Oropeza killed five of the ten people living in the neighboring house: Julisa Molina Rivera, 31; Sonia Argentina Guzman, 25; Diana Velazquez Alvarado, 21; Jose Jonathan Casarez, 18; Daniel Enrique Laso, 8.

The first four victims were discovered by the local police dead at the scene, while the 8-year-old child died of his wounds in a hospital.

At a press conference on Saturday afternoon, Capers and the FBI announced they had found some of Oropeza’s clothes and cell phone.

A prison tracking dog searched for the suspected but lost his tracks after he went into a waterway.

“Our number one priority has been to locate this suspect and put him behind bars where he belongs,” the sheriff said.

FBI Special Agent in Charge James Smith announced the bureau was helping in the investigation and manhunt.

“We’re still out there trying to find this individual,” Smith said.

“We consider him armed and dangerous, and we’re not going to stop until we actually arrest him and bring him into custody,” added the FBI agent.

Sheriff Capers said the law enforcement officers thought they had recovered the murder weapon, but the suspect might have another firearm.

“He could be anywhere now,” the sheriff said, noting that an award for information helping for the Mexican national’s capture had been upped to $80,000.
