REBECCA RAMIREZ & HER 2 SONS MURDERED, SET ON FIRE
WANTED FUGITIVE • Jorge Lopez-Orozco is on the FBI wanted list for the murder of girlfriend Rebecca Ramirez and her two sons, and the agency has offered a $5,000 reward for him. Evidently she had broken off the relationship with Lopez-Orozco and he reponded by shooting the three to death, then dumping their bodies in a car which he set on fire. Local officials believe that he has escaped to Mexico and traveled there with his wife and three children. The FBI notes that the fugitive should be considered armed and dangerous. This case was another cited by federal agent J. Kent Nygaard when he warned INS officials that immigration law non-enforcement was putting Americans at risk. He remarked, "Lopez-Orozco had been incarcerated in the Mountain Home, Idaho, jail prior to the murders, but was released with no intervention from INS because he did not fall in one of the categories of criminals that the INS is interested in."
