In a terrifying series of events ignored by most of the mainstream media, two men involved in the violent Sinaloa drug cartel beheaded a 13-year old girl after forcing her to watch the murder of her grandmother. This series of events didn’t occur in a violent cartel-run city in Mexico or South America, it instead occurred just outside of Huntsville, Alabama. The two men, Yoni Martinez Aguilar and Israel Gonzalez Palomino, are being held in the Madison County Alabama Jail on charges of capital murder.
The now deceased grandmother, Oralia Mendoza was also involved with helping the drug cartel, and assisted the two men who murdered her and her daughter in the days leading up to her death. Just days before her murder, on June 2nd, Mendoza joined the two men in picking up a quarter kilo of meth in Norcross, Georgia. It was on their trip back after picking up the drugs that the two men grew suspicious of Mendoza.
They felt that Mendoza may have been in contact with law enforcement authorities, and that she may have been setting them up for a drug sting. So on June 4th, Aguilar and Palomino woke up Mendoza, and her 13-year old daughter Mariah Lopez, telling them that they needed to leave immediately and get to a safe location.
After waking up the two, Aguilar and Palomino drove them to Moon Cemetery in Owens Cross Roads, AL. According to testimony by Aguilar, Palomino and Mendoza got into an argument at the cemetery which escalated until Palomino murdered the grandmother as her 13-year old granddaughter watched on. It was because Lopez was a witness to the murder that Palomino ordered Lopez to join him in a secluded area nearby.
In the secluded area, Aguilar told investigators that Palomino ordered him to kill the 13-year old girl. Knife in hand, Aguilar claims that Palomino moved his knife-wielding arm back and forth against the young girl’s neck until she was beheaded. Aguilar claims that he was in fear of Palomino when he killed the young girl.
It only took three days for the body to be found by a local farm boy, and only 30-minutes after police released a description of the deceased for Lopez’s mother to come forward.
The two are being held without bail. Palomino is also being detained on hold by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for an unknown reason. Big League Politics reached out to the Madison County Jail who could not confirm the reason for ICE’s interest in Palomino, and also could not confirm whether or not Palomino is a U.S. citizen.
If Palomino is indeed an illegal immigrant, this will be yet another case of an illegal immigration committing a horribly violent crime. It will also give merit to claims made by President Donald Trump that illegal immigrants are bringing drugs and crime over the border.
Big League Politics will update you if any developments are found on the legal status of Palomino.
