Twice Deported Illegal Alien Charged with Raping, Killing Jogger in New Jersey
Victim was stalked by purpetrator for over an hour before horrific attack
An illegal immigrant from Honduras who has already been deported twice from the United States has been charged with raping and killing a jogger from New Jersey, according to authorities.
Jorge Rios, 33, was first deported from the US in 2003 and again in 2004, but managed to sneak back over the border.
The victim, Carolina Cano, 45, was stalked by Rios before he strangled her with a cellphone cord, raped her and drowned her after she embarked on an early morning jog in Jersey City’s Lincoln Park, a surveillance video revealed.
Following his horrific crime, Rios reportedly asked a friend how much he could get for murder.
His victim died “as a result of homicidal violence including strangulation and water submersion,” a criminal complaint against Rios said.
According to an affidavit for Rio’s arrest, as per The NY Post:
“The male observes the victim and proceeds to walk behind her. Upon approaching the football parking lot, the victim is seen running with the male running directly behind her."
“The male is seen continuing south, stopping, turning to look behind him towards the victim, and then running in the same direction as the victim.”
The court papers described Cano's horrific last moment as her alleged killer ruthlessly hunted her down.
President Donald Trump has long asserted that a wall is needed to protect both citizens and legal immigrants from dangerous gangs and criminals.
Earlier this week, the Department of Defense awarded $976 Million worth of contracts for the construction of border walls in New Mexico and Arizona.
$789 million was awarded to SLSCO Ltd., a builder based in Galveston, Texas, to replace a border wall in Santa Teresa, New Mexico.
A further $187 million was awarded to Barnard Construction Co. Inc to replace pedestrian barriers in Yuma, Arizona.
Both projects are expected to be completed in October 2020.
Meanwhile, New York City allocated $11.6 million in taxpayer funds to pay for lawyers to help illegal immigrants who are facing deportation from the United States.
NYC officials announced this week they have added an extra $1.6m in funding to pay for the attorneys on top of the $10 million the city already allocates to cover legal costs for illegal aliens.
