Another murderer is found to be an illegal alien

Juan Emmanuel Razo is an illegal alien. On July 7, Lake County (Ohio) Sheriff’s deputies stopped him, and he admitted as much to them. However, federal officials chose not to detain him. On July 27, Razo murdered one woman and shot another:

Channel 3 News has obtained a three-page report from Lake County Sheriff’s deputies which detail their July 7 encounter with Juan Emmanuel Razo.

According to the report, Razo, 35, admitted being in the country illegally. However, U.S. Border Patrol officials declined to take custody of Razo, the report shows.

The deputy’s report shows that Razo was questioned about 8:30 p.m. while parked inside a vehicle stopped in a vacant lot on Casement Avenue in Painesville Township.

At one point, Razo refused to identify himself, the deputy wrote.

“[Razo] was secured while we spoke with …U.S. Border Patrol, who later decided not to respond to take [Razo] into custody,” the deputy wrote in his report. “[Razo] was warned not to return to this property. We cleared.”

It is unclear why Border Patrol refused to take Razo into custody. Calls to federal officials were not immediately returned Tuesday. Deputies said they had no charges on which to hold Razo and he was subsequently released.

Lake County Sheriff Daniel Dunlap would not comment on the July 7 report.

Razo is accused of shooting and killing Peggy Kostelnick, 60, of Painesville, and of shooting another woman in the arm. Additionally, he is accused of attempting to rape a 14-year-old girl in Concord. He was arrested in Concord Township after a gunfight with police. He is being held on $10 million bond.
