This story is heartbreaking and could have been prevented if the federal government would do its job.
On April 1, a 25 year old illegal immigrant showed on the door step of an Arizona woman. He informed he wanted to date her 13 year old daughter.
When she said no, he shot her. She died at the scene.
According to Sheriff’s investigators, sometime around 9:30pm on April 1, 2013, Zarate went to the home of 31 year old Saucedo and her 13 year old daughter to allegedly express an interest in pursuing a romantic relationship with the underage teen. During the confrontation, the mother denied his request, and that’s when investigators say Zarate took out a rifle and shot the victim in the chest at close range in the presence of the 13 year old.
One of several witnesses to the crime apparently disarmed Zarate before he fled the area on foot.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene and administered CPR on the victim until paramedics arrived but she died at the scene.
Sheriff’s deputies say Zarate is a non-U.S. citizen who has been living in the country without proper authorization.
