Kayla Gomez-Orozco, a sweet 10 year old little girl from TX, disappeared from a prayer meeting without a trace on Tuesday. Police finally got a lead on Saturday and found the little girl at the bottom of a well. While authorities did not name the person of interest, he has been identified as Gustavo Zavala-Garcia and is married to Kayla’s cousin.
Not only is Gustavo Zavala-Garcia a family member, he is also an illegal immigrant who pled guilty to assaulting his wife and received a 30-day county jail sentence two years ago.
Another life lost to an immigrant that shouldn’t even be here. This needs to stop, secure our borders and deport known criminals!
Daily Mail has the story:
The man accused of abducting and killing a 10-year-old girl is a relative who is in the United States illegally, reports suggest.
Gustavo Zavala-Garcia is in custody on an immigration hold after Kayla Gomez-Orozco’s body was found in a well next to his home in Bullard, Texas, on Saturday night.
He is believed to be the last person to have seen the youngster alive. Police also believe he caused her death.
A law enforcement source told KETK, he somehow got back into the United States after being deported for committing a violent crime in 2014.
Jail records indicate he served 30 days behind bars for assaulting his wife.
He is in the Smith County jail with no possibility of bond.
Kayla was last seen on Tuesday at the Bullard First Assembly Church where she was attending a prayer service with her family.
Smith County Sheriff Larry Smith told the TV station: ‘A family member resides at the residence that we conducted the search where the body was recovered.
