The local media are very carefully unrolling the full extent of the local crime wave courtesy of a bunch of illegal aliens. Short attention spans make this story hard to follow. So a rapist (?) is booked for rape and released, and goes on to shoot and machete/chop two illegal victims, one of whom dies. I’m told that all are members of the local high school's JROTC—it’s nice we are training gang members in the art of war!
Novato homicide suspect, 17, was arrested a week earlier in rape case
A Novato High School student who allegedly murdered a classmate last month was arrested on suspicion of raping another classmate the week before the homicide, according to sources familiar with the investigation.
Juan Carlos Martinez Henriquez, 17, was booked into Marin County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of rape and sodomy on May 18, sources said. The alleged victim, a 15-year-old Novato High School student, reported she was assaulted at about 1 p.m. near campus at the end of Tyler Street.
Two days later, the Marin County District Attorney’s Office released Martinez without charges pending further investigation.
A week after that, Martinez allegedly murdered Edwin Ramirez Guerra, 17, also a student at Novato High School.
Despite widespread speculation that the sexual assault of a student was a factor leading to the homicide, authorities have not asserted such a connection. The prosecution has described the murder as gang-related, although the investigation is continuing.[ More]
