Sick: Illegal Who Killed 5 ‘Execution Style’ Was Deported Four Times

'What we need from the public is any type of information, because right now we’re just we’re running into dead ends... '

(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) The Mexican national who is currently on the run after allegedly killing five individuals “execution style” in Texas was identified as an illegal immigrant who had been deported four times. 

38-year-old Francisco Oropeza was apprehended and subsequently deported by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in March 2009, September 2009 and a third time in January 2012, ABC News reported. 

The mass murder happened Friday night after neighbors asked the suspect to stop firing shots from a rifle-style weapon outside his home in Cleveland, Texas. Oropeza, who was allegedly under the influence of alcohol, stormed inside the neighbors’ home and killed the five residents, including a nine-year-old. 

The San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Office reportedly received a call at around 11:31 p.m. on complaints of harassment. Law enforcement then uncovered the bodies of five victims at the property. 

Three children were found with no injuries but covered in blood. Authorities told ABC News that two female victims were found in one bedroom lying on top of two surviving minors. 

“Everybody has been shot from the neck up almost execution style,” a sheriff told local reporters Sunday. 

The victims were identified as Sonia Argentina Guzman, 25, Diana Velazquez Alvarado, 21, Julisa Molina Rivera, 31, Jose Jonathan Casarez, 18 and Daniel Enrique Laso Guzman, 9. Earlier reports cited Guzman as an 8-year-old boy.  

Texas law enforcement is offering an $80,000 reward for information that leads to the apprehension of Oropeza, who remains at-large and dangerous. 

FBI special agent James Smith said in a Sunday press conference that law enforcement has no leads to the whereabouts of Oropeza. 

“What we need from the public is any type of information, because right now we’re just we’re running into dead ends,” Smith said. “I can tell you right now, we have zero leads.” 

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who oversees ICE, had previously declined to say whether Oropeza was in the country illegally when asked by NBC News host Chuck Todd. 

“Chuck, I won’t comment on it because it is an active case,” Mayorkas said. “The tragedy that occurred is, you described it correctly, just absolutely horrific.”
