Arrest made in double homicide of Colorado Springs teens

Less than two weeks before the teens were found dead, Marquez bonded out of jail on separate charges, court records show.

A 19-year-old man was arrested late Sunday in the deaths of two Colorado Springs teens, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office said Monday.

Derek Benjamin Greer, 15, and Natalie Partida, 16, were found dead March 12 on the shoulder of Old Pueblo Road in a rural part of the county. Derek was a freshman and Natalie was a sophomore at Coronado High School.

The El Paso County Coroner’s Office ruled their deaths homicides, but has not said how they were killed, withholding details until after completion of an autopsy.

Gustavo Marquez was arrested on suspicion of two counts each of first-degree murder, second-degree kidnapping and aggravated robbery and one count of child abuse resulting in death, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

He was arrested on one count of child abuse because only one of the teens was younger than 16 years old, said Jacqueline Kirby, a Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.

Marquez remains in the El Paso County jail without bond, inmate records show.

Another Journalist Murdered in Mexico

Mexican authorities continue to look into how another journalist was murdered in Veracruz, making him the 20th killed in that state in the past six years.

On Sunday morning, unknown gunmen shot and killed Ricardo Monlui Cabrera, a journalist for El Politico and syndicated columnist for various other outlets, Mexico’s Proceso magazine reported.

Monlui Cabrera was at breakfast with his wife in the rural community of Yanga moments before the murder. As the couple walked out of the restaurant, a gunman shot Monlui Cabrera and fled the scene. According to Proceso, the victim had not been threatened before and did not have any security measures in place.

The crime marks the second murder of a Mexican journalist in 2017. According to Reporters without Borders, in 2016, 13 journalists were killed in Mexico with at least nine of those murders being related to their work. On March 2, Cecilio Pineda Brito, a crime reporter in the State of Guerrero, was gunned down. Pineda Brito was a reporter for the El Universal and El Debate dailies. According to Reporters Without Borders, Brito was outspoken about local corruption and had been the recipient of numerous threats.

Graphic: Mexican Cartel Spreads ISIS-Like Beheading Video to Gain Border Turf near Texas

Narco-terrorism is thriving near Texas as one of the Mexican cartels controlling the U.S.-Mexico Border is resorting to ISIS-like beheading videos to intimidate rivals and to scare the civilian population into complete compliance. The cartel, Los Zetas, is fighting for control of lucrative border drug and illegal immigration corridors into Texas. Breitbart Texas obtained exclusive video of Los Zetas’ narco-terror which can be viewed in full on LiveLeak.

A video that was leaked to Breitbart Texas by our sources in Mexico this week shows the moment when two gunmen wearing masks stand behind a shirtless man and begin to interrogate him. The gunmen claim to be members of the Los Zetas and fire off a series of threats against other Los Zetas factions; including Cartel Del Noreste (CDN), Vieja Escuela Z, and others. You can see the entire video in the Darby-Ortiz LiveLeak Channel; warning–the content is extremely graphic in nature.

Roughly an hour after publication, LiveLeak removed the video despite having served as a reliable platform for those wishing to share graphic content strictly for non-journalistic purposes. Should any law enforcement or other officials wish to review the footage, feel free to contact Breitbart Texas.

In the video, the shirtless male kneels as he is interrogated. The victim says he is David Mandujano Montoya and had been sent to Ciudad Victoria to carry out crimes in order to spark fear.

Pastor Lobbies For Murderer’s Release. Murderer Marries Pastor’s Daughter. What Happens Next Is Horrifying

During the sentencing hearing, Harris-Green, who divorced Green in December, said to her ex-husband, “You are a con artist. You are a monster. You are a devil in disguise. You are now forever exposed . . . Not even torture and death would be justice. Your justice will come when you burn in Hell for all eternity for murdering four innocent children, all because you’re insecure.”

In the great mystery writer Agatha Christie’s classic Death on the Nile, the person who winds up being unveiled as the killer admits, “I’m not a safe person any longer. I can feel that myself . . . It’s so dreadfully easy – killing people. And you begin to feel that it doesn’t matter . . . that it’s only you that matters.”

As The Washington Post reports, Michigan man Gregory Green stabbed his pregnant wife in 1991, slaughtering both her and their unborn child. He then called 911 and waited for the police.

Sixtteen years later, released from prison after his conviction, in part due to the efforts of Fred Harris, his pastor in Detroit who lobbied for him, Green married Harris’ daughter Faith, who already had two children. Green and Faith then had two daughters, Koi and Kaliegh.

On September 21, 2016, Green bound Faith Harris-Green with duct tape and zip ties in their basement; Green had shot her in the foot and slashed her face with a box cutter.

But it was far worse than that.

Green shot Harris-Green’s two teenage children to death in front of her. Their two daughters, Koi, now five, and Kaliegh, now four, were dead upstairs; they had been poisoned by carbon monoxide in the car as duct tape covered the muffler. Green moved their bodies upstairs later.

Two Satanic MS-13 Gang Members Accused of Raping Minor, Murder (Video)

Two MS-13 gang members appeared, smiling and waving at television cameras, before a state criminal court on charges of kidnapping and raping a 14-year-old girl and murdering another. The pair appear to have been participating in satanic rituals during the alleged attacks.

Diego Rivera, 18, and Miguel Alvarez-Flores, 18, turned around, and smiled and waved at television cameras shortly before having the charges against them read in open court. The two men stand accused of the brutal rapes of two young girls and the murder of one of one. The murdered girl was allegedly killed as part of a satanic ritual, KTRK ABC13 reported.

Court records obtained by Breitbart Texas revealed that Alvarez-Flores is a foreign national from El Salvador. Rivera’s birthplace and nationality have not yet been revealed. Court records indicate Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have placed immigration holds on both men. Breitbart Texas reached out to ICE officials for additional information. No response was immediately available.

The surviving victim, a 14-year-old Houston girl, told detectives she had run away from school and met the two men. They took her to an apartment where they got her high and drunk before she was sexually assaulting by a man known as “Flaco,” court records revealed. The two men then took the young girl to another apartment where they held her for 14 days. Six MS-13 gang members were living at the domicile.

Throughout the ordeal, the young girl was forced to ingest drugs and alcohol. She remained intoxicated for the duration of her two weeks in captivity.

Ten Arrested, Including Four Illegal Aliens, After ‘Savage’ Gang-Related Killing of Maryland Teen

Imported gang violence continues to afflict Virginia: authorities charged illegal alien suspects with murder and all ten suspects for gang participation and abduction on Thursday for the “brutal” slaying of 15-year-old Damaris Reyes Rivas.

Police arrested ten in connection with Rivas’ death: four adults and six teenagers. FOX5 reports “Jose Ivan Castillo Rivas, 18, Springfield, Wilmer A. Sanchez Serrano, 21, Cindy Blanco Hernandez, 18, and Aldair J. Miranda Carcamo, 18” are adults. Another 17-year-old, Venus Iraheta, who has lived in the U.S. for the past ten years—making her a “DREAMer” eligible for amnesty under an Obama executive order—is also in police custody. Police did not identify the other five juveniles. All ten face charges of abduction and gang participation. Rivas and Serrano are charged with murder.

Rivas died on or close to January 8 of upper-body trauma in a “savage, brutal killing,” Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin Roessler said. Police reportedly found video evidence of Rivas’ death and declined to name the gang connected to the teenager’s murder. According to Maria Reyes, Rivas’ mother, her daughter had gotten involved with the El Salvadoran gang Mara Salvatrucha or MS-13 recently. She told FOX 5 she is receiving violent threats from gang members “blaming her for the arrests” and is afraid for her own life.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed detainers on the four adults charged with murder and has asked Fairfax County to alert them before they are released from custody.

Mexican Cops Sentenced for Kidnapping, Murdering Ranchers

Half of the victims from the kidnappings were incinerated inside the state prison in Piedras Negras. High ranking government officials, including a former Coahuila governor, have been implicated in U.S. court hearings of having provided protection to Los Zetas.

Two former cops from this border state have been sent to prison in connection with the murder and kidnapping of three ranchers in 2015.

During a court hearing on Friday afternoon, Juan Carlos Favela Mares and Lauro Arturo Lerma Orozco were formally sentenced to 40 and 45 years in prison, respectively. The two men had been Coahuila state police officers since 2011 until their arrest.

The two former cops were convicted of having kidnapped and murdered three cattlemen from the Mexican state of Zacatecas, who were traveling to Piedras Negras. The cowboys were moving about 300 head of cattle to the border when the kidnapping took place near the rural community of Castaños, Coahuila, about 250 miles south of the Texas border. Court records do not reveal if the kidnapping was for ransom, however the three were eventually murdered. Authorities discovered the bodies of the three victims inside a vehicle. The victims had been handcuffed and shot in the head.

‘Cannibal’ prisoners ‘feast on human flesh of fellow inmate’ cooked on barbecue as 26 killed in 10-day riot

WARNING: Contains distressing images. The prisoner holds up a skewer draped in lumps of human ‘meat’ said to be from member of rival drug gang.

Prisoners have been filmed allegedly cooking the flesh of fellow inmates over a barbecue during a 10-day riot which has seen 26 men killed.

In the sick video the apparently cannibalistic lags gloat as they show off pieces of meat on a skewer over a bonfire, claiming they’re toasting the remains of a rival without even bothering to hide their faces.

The footage was recorded at Alcacuz Prison in the north eastern Brazilian city of Natal which is in the midst of a bloody riot as rival gangs attack each other.

The bodies of some prisoners have been returned to their loved ones with their heads missing after they were decapitated.

Only 22 victims of the horrific violence had been identified so far, with forensic experts still trying to determine who two heads, a forearm, an arm and a leg removed by the prison grounds belonged to.
