Illegal immigrant arrested for beating 81-year-old woman to death with rolling pin, covering it up


FREDERICK, MD  A 35-year-old illegal immigrant from Peru allegedly beat an 81-year-old woman to death in Maryland with a rolling pin. What’s worse, the alleged murderer tried to cover up the crime by claiming the victim had fallen down the stairs.

Maria Gloria Vazquez-Mebo is facing charges of second-degree murder after police say she beat the woman to death on the evening of Sept. 13.

Vazquez-Mebo was actually the caretaker for the victim’s wheelchair-bound husband.

While the victim did not live in the home where her husband was staying, she reportedly would visit often and clearly was at the home on the day in question. 

At about 6:30 p.m. that evening, Vazquez-Mebo had called the daughter of the couple and then 911, alleging that the elderly woman had fallen down the stairs.

The elderly woman was already dead by the time police and first responders had arrived on the scene of the home located on North Bentz Street. Police noticed at the time that the victim had sustained severe injuries to her head.

When interrogated the following day, Vazquez-Mebo was said to have repeated her claim that the victim had fallen down the stairs. Investigators say that Vazquez-Mebo eventually confessed to having retrieved a rolling pin and striking the victim in the head multiple times, causing her death.

Police have yet to release any details regarding a motive for the alleged murder, but the brutality of it has shaken local residents, leaving some to question how a person could commit such a heinous act.

Neighbor Heidi Horkey remarked that she used to see Vazquez-Mebo walking in the neighborhood, often accompanied by a toddler:

“We spoke and said hi to her and she said hi back, but that was about it.”

When commenting on the nature of the crime, Horkey referred to it as “shocking:”

“It’s very shocking. You think you’re safe in your home and then something like this happens. Makes you really aware about who’s around.”

Vazquez-Mebo is reportedly being held in custody without bail and Immigration and Customs Enforcement have confirmed that there’s an immigration detainer lodged against the accused if she’s ever released from jail or prison.

Meanwhile, in Louisiana, three illegal immigrants are accused of raping a 10-year-old girl – and potentially other minors as well.

Two brothers are in police custody and another is on the run after police say they raped a young girl. 

A press release from Kenner, Louisiana, police details a horrific crime. 

Officers said the three men, who are in the country illegally, sexually assaulted a girl younger than 13 earlier this month. 

Breitbart reports that the victim is only 10 years old. 

The media outlet also reported that police said the three brothers may have also sexually assaulted the girl’s 15-year-old sister and, potentially, two of the victim’s step-siblings. 

Raul Paz-Perez and Wilmer Paz-Perez, both 35, are accused of first-degree rape involving a juvenile under the age of 13, according to Lt. Michael Cunningham, a spokesman for the Kenner Police Department.

Their younger brother, Elder Paz-Perez, 31, is still wanted on the same charge. 

The press release says the crime happened Sept. 9 in a home that the victim shared with the alleged attackers. 

Three days after the assault, officers say the girl told a relative what happened and that person then reported it to police. 

Officers say all three men were alone with the victim when “they made sexual advances toward the child in which they offered money for sex.” 

The girl tried to lock herself in a bedroom, but the men broke in and allegedly held her down and sexually assaulted her. 

Investigators say that they arrested two of the men the same day they learned of the crime and that they are being held without bail at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center. 

But Elder Paz-Perez has vanished. 

Breitbart reported that the missing brother is the boyfriend of the victim’s mother, which is why the three were living in the house. 

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency has also placed detainers on Raul and Wilmer Paz-Perez, so if they were to be released from local custody, they will be turned over to federal immigration officials for arrest and deportation. 

Kenner Police tweeted the press release, along with pictures of the men. Other Twitter users have responded with outrage. 

One woman wrote: 

“This is beyond horrific. These perps must be brought to justice INSIDE prison.” 

Kenner Police are asking anyone with information on Elder Paz-Perez’s location to call them immediately. 

Law Enforcement Today recently brought readers another story about the importance of ICE:

LAREDO, TX According to the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan think tank based out of Washington, D.C.,  there were 11.6 million immigrants from Mexico living in the United States in 2017 and almost half of them were illegal. 

At a Laredo, Texas, immigration checkpoint along U.S Highway 83, Border Patrol Agents  on July 13 disrupted a human smuggling attempt in South Texas. Agents spotted the white semi-tractor-trailer approaching them for inspection. 

When initially interviewed, both the driver and the passenger, who were American citizens, admitted to having people locked inside the trailer. 

When the agents opened the rear of the semi, they discovered 35 illegal immigrants attempting to make entry into the United States. 

The temperature in the back of the truck at the time the agents discovered the illegal immigrants was 126 degrees Fahrenheit.  Agents noted that there was no way for the people locked in the back of the trailer to escape in the event of a crash or abandonment by the human smugglers. 

Both the driver and the passenger were arrested and placed into custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland and Security Investigations.

Earlier in July, agents intercepted another group of illegal immigrants attempting to enter the United States locked inside a tractor-trailer.  Agents identified these 66 illegal immigrants as originating from Brazil, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico.

Officials at the Laredo Sector Immigration Checkpoint report an increase in the number if illegal immigrants being smuggled inside tractor-trailers into the United States in recent months. 

With the increase in illegal immigrants comes an increase in infectious diseases.  With so many people choosing to not vaccinate against diseases, illegal immigrants are helping to spread diseases such as mumps, measles and tuberculosis into the United States.

This is therefore creating large outbreaks in a population that had pretty much eradicated these diseases in the past.  

With the increased influx of these diseases comes a huge surge in the cost of medical care for those who are housed at these holding facilities, with taxpayers left footing the bill.

For example, in fiscal year 2018, the Yuma sector of Border Patrol reported more than $700,000 in medical care for approximately 1,700 illegal immigrants who had been apprehended at their checkpoint and had to be transported to a local hospital. 

Many of these migrants, mostly children, arrive to these facilities suffering from illnesses not seen in the United States today.

A Reuters article from March 10, 2019, spoke in detail about the large numbers of illegal immigrants who have had to quarantine because of exposure to diseases that are preventable by a simple vaccine. 

The article stated:

“ICE health officials have been notified of 236 confirmed or probable cases of mumps among detainees in 51 facilities in the past 12 months, compared to no cases detected between January 2016 and February 2018.  Last year, 423 detainees were determined to have influenza and 461 were determined to have chicken pox. All three diseases are largely preventable by a vaccine.” 

Despite an ongoing, world-wide COVID-19 pandemic, human smugglers continue to put the lives of American citizens in danger as well as the immigrants they exploit by bringing them into the country with no concern for health or safety measures.
