Mexican couple arrested for murdering American ‘wife of convenience’. Do we need that wall yet?
Not his first rodeo, obviously:
Officials said her car was set on fire in an orchard and her four children have not heard from her. “We’re comfortable and confident in our belief that Cecila Bravo Cabrera was murdered,” Boudreaux said.
Valdivia was already in custody when he was arrested. Several days after Bravo disappeared, Valdivia was arrested on suspicion of cultivation of marijuana for sales and originally was held on $1 million bail due to having several growing sites, authorities said at the time.
Here is the official announcement:
Let’s back up a little. Here are the basic facts:
Both suspects are now being held without bail.
Valdivia was born in Mexico and apparently was in the United States illegally.
“He never had legal status,” Boudreaux said.
He married Lopez in Mexico in 2007, he said. He married Cabrera, who was born in Bakersfield, in an attempt to gain legal residence, Boudreaux said.
“He used Cecilia in a business relationship to gain himself legal residence,” he said at a news conference.
Lopez is also from Mexico. She and Valdivia lived together, he said.
Boudreaux said the motive for the suspected murder involved “the relationship of these three people” but said he could not be more specific. The case has been turned over to the Tulare County District Attorney’s Office, he said.
“I can tell you there have been threats made on her life by the suspects who are in custody,” and investigators have “significant digital forensic evidence” against them, he said.
The case against both Valdivia and Lopez is circumstantial because Cabrera’s body has not been found. Anyone who has information that might help investigators locate her body should call the sheriff’s department, Boudreaux said.
Do you feel safer now that Obama has spent such energy dumping illegal immigrants out of the prison system and into polite society?
THIS is the sort of ‘illegal Mexican immigrant’ story the media staunchly refuses to tell. It shows up their ‘for a better life’ line for the lie it is.
