In September 2018, a fishing boat captain broadcast this mayday call when a member of his crew turned murderous.
The seven-man crew suddenly found themselves in a crisis when fellow crew member Franklin Freddy Meave Vazquez, a Mexican national and illegal alien in the United States, suddenly began attacking his crew mates with a knife and hammer, killing one and injuring two.
Yes, an illegal alien. But you wouldn’t know it from the headlines…
From the Department of Justice: “Virginia Man Pleads Guilty to Murder Aboard Commercial Scalloping Boat”
And the Associated Press: “Fishing crew member pleads guilty to murder in attack at sea”
As James Fulford notes on VDARE.com, the AP article doesn’t mention the killer’s illegal status until the eleventh paragraph.
Thankfully Vazquez’s guilty plea to second-degree-murder and other related charges makes him subject to deportation upon sentencing.
However, the entire incident could have been prevented. In March of 2018, Vazquez was arrested on an abduction charge. Unfortunately, a criminally negligent immigration judge granted Vazquez bond. The illegal alien was released, and free to commit the assault on his crew members just months later.
