Illegal immigrants charged with killing 12-year-old Texas girl

At least one of two illegal immigrants who were charged with the murder of a 12-year-old girl in Texas were previously released by Border Patrol, according to multiple reports Thursday.

Johan Jose Rangel Martinez, 21, and Franklin Jose Pena Ramos, 26, were caught crossing the border illegally in El Paso, Texas, in March and May, respectively, according to sources speaking with Fox News. Both were released into the United States, after which they allegedly murdered Jocelyn Nungaray this week.

Both illegal immigrants were from Venezuela.

Nungaray’s death caught the attention of former President Donald Trump, who blamed the killing on President Joe Biden’s immigration policies.

“We have a new Biden Migrant Killing – It’s only going to get worse, and it’s all Crooked Joe Biden’s fault,” he said in a post on Truth Social. “He’s a disgrace to the Office of President, he’s a disgrace to America. I look forward to seeing him at the Fake Debate on Thursday. Let him explain why he has allowed MILLIONS of people to come into our Country illegally!”

Houston Mayor John Whitmire said the murder of Nungaray hit particularly close to home.

“As a grandfather and a father, it doesn’t get any worse,” he said, per the New York Post. “If there is any circumstance where you deny bail, this is it.” The outlet also cited DHS sources saying Pena Ramos was promptly released by border agents after being caught.

Security footage showed Martinez and Ramos following Nungaray into a convenience store. She disappeared shortly after and then was found dead floating in a bayou. Billie Jackson, who discovered the body, told ABC 13 news that she didn’t recognize her corpse as a body at first.

“I drove past, and when I looked up the creek, I thought it was a mannequin. I did a U-turn and I stopped on the bridge, put my flashers on, looked down, and realized it was someone. I parked right here and called 911 immediately,” she said.

The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences found she died by strangulation.
