Illegal beaner ran back to Mexico after killing his newlywed wife

The last time her family saw Estrella Carrera, she had just gotten married to the father of her youngest child.

They started getting worried the next day when the 26-year-old Carrera failed to pick up the child, a 2-year-old boy, and her 9-year-old daughter. On Sunday, a sister called police.

Officers arriving at Carrera's apartment in Burbank found her dead of stab wounds in a dry bath tub. She was still wearing her wedding dress. Authorities said they believe the slaying was domestic, but would not elaborate. No one is currently in custody, police said.

"We never thought this would happen, she was a strong woman. . .She loved her kids," Carrera's cousin Jaime Lopez said. "Reality still hasn't hit me."

Carrera had gotten married to the father of her son Friday but told few people, according to another cousin, Sandy Lopez.

Carrera called Sandy Lopez on Friday, sounding happy and inviting her to a party. But she said nothing about a wedding. "She didn't want to tell me she had gotten married," said Sandy Lopez, who did not attend the party. "She didn't tell anybody."

Carrera and the man had had an on-and-off relationship for about three years, according to Sandy Lopez. The Tribune is not naming him because he has not been charged with a crime.

Sandy Lopez said she did not approve of the relationship or the marriage, but she could not speak for others in the family.

"He's just a person who had problems," Sandy Lopez said without elaborating. "She was a beautiful mother, person, sister."

Jaime Lopez said Carrera called other relatives to invite them to the party on Friday. She had planned a party on a bus and the group went to several bars.

"This just happened out of nowhere," Jaime Lopez said of the wedding. "It was so fast I couldn't even make it to the celebration."

Carrera had left her children with her father, but she failed to check in or pick them up. Relatives went to her home and knocked on the door but got no answer on Saturday, Jaime Lopez said. Two cars that belonged to her were not parked outside.

The cousins said Carrera was a strong, independent woman who worked as a Spanish language translator for a social welfare agency.

She and the 30-year-old man from the Southwest Side of Chicago applied for a marriage license on May 2, a source said.

Carrera did not yet have a marriage certificate on file, according to the Cook County clerk's office. The marriage is officially recorded after the person who presides over the wedding signs the marriage license and submits it to the office.

Jason Tokarczyk, 24, a neighbor, said Carrera lived in the Burbank apartment for three or four months and he would see her with a young son. He said the woman was very quiet and kept to herself, except for the occasional goodbye or hello.

He said he had never seen her in the company of a man and was surprised to hear that she had been recently married.

"I figured she was a single mom," said Tokarczyk. "She was quiet as a mouse."

About a month ago,, she used his phone to call a locksmith after she was locked out of her home. He last saw her Thursday or Friday and did not see her in a wedding dress.

"I was shocked out of my mind to hear something had happened to her," Tokarczyk said.

The death is being investigated by the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force, police said.

Nanette Packard-McNeal, 46, LOVED TWO THINGS: SHOPPING & SEX!
The nympho spender now will turn carpet muncher with her life sentence without any chance of parole

An Orange County woman convicted of plotting the 1994 murder of her wealthy Newport Beach boyfriend was sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Sentencing for the woman's former lover, a former NFL linebacker convicted of actually killing businessman Bill McLaughlin, was continued until Aug. 10.

Jurors had earlier convicted Nanette Packard-McNeal, 46, and onetime New England Patriots linebacker Eric Naposki in McLaughlin's slaying, part of an alleged plot to cash in on the man's $1-million life insurance policy.

At one point during Friday's proceedings in Orange County Superior Court, Naposki refused to come out of his holding cell.

Deputy Dist. Atty. Matt Murphy called Naposki's behavior "a final blaze of no class and cowardice." Naposki, the prosecutor said, was "a coward for not coming out of his cell, a coward for not facing these people."

About 40 people -- including friends and family of McLaughlin, police officers, journalists and former jurors in the case -- filled the courtroom.

Portrayed as a femme fatale and manipulator, Packard-McNeal was living with McLaughlin and spending and stealing his money while dating other men, prosecutors said.

Murphy said Packard-McNeal had to kill McLaughlin because it was only a matter of time before he realized she was cheating on him or stealing his money.

Packard-McNeal's attorney, Mick Hill, argued that his client had the perfect setup with McLaughlin -- he was rich, was largely absent and owned a nice home -- and she wouldn't want to ruin it by eliminating him.

The slaying had been one of the more perplexing unsolved homicides in Orange County until Naposki and Packard-McNeal were arrested in 2009.

The ex-football player, who at the time of the slaying was working as a bouncer at the Thunderbird nightclub in Newport Beach, was accused of entering McLaughlin's home with a key Packard-McNeal had provided and then shooting the victim six times in the chest.
McLaughlin's 24-year-old son, upstairs at the time of the shooting, told police he heard the shots and then found his father's body. He said the intruder, however, was gone.

McLaughlin's violent death shocked the normally quiet Balboa Coves community where he was a fixture. The businessman was well known in medical circles after inventing a prototype blood-filtering device for collecting plasma.
Black man posing as police officer in Mississippi would fatally shoot the white drivers he pulled over

 

THE MEDIA IN THIS COUNTRY IS FUCKING AMAZING! HERE WE HAVE A NEGRO PRTENDING TO BE THE POLICE, PULLING OVER WHITE MOTORISTS AND MURDERING THEM AND NOT A SINGLE FUCKING WORD ABOUT RACE!!! THE MAKE AN INTERNATIONAL STORY AND LIE THEIR ASSES OFF ABOUT THE HOODED THUG ASSHOLE TRAYVON MARTIN BEING SHOT….BUT NO OUTRAGE ABOUT THIS!!!
JACKSON, Miss.— Police have arrested a suspect in two fatal highway shootings in Mississippi that prompted warnings a fake officer might be pulling over victims.
Authorities said early Friday that the fears of an impostor turned out to be unfounded. Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain told The Associated Press that the suspect, James D. Willie, 28, had not been posing as a police officer in the shootings.
Willie was being held on charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault and rape and would be formally charged with two counts of capital murder, Strain said. He was being held at the Tunica County jail in north Mississippi.
Willie was arrested Tuesday morning when authorities responded to a disturbance at an apartment. Tunica police found Willie with a woman who claimed he had raped her, a news release said. When Willie was arrested, authorities found a 9mm Ruger in his possession. Ballistic testing later found that it was the same gun used in the two highway shootings, authorities said.
Strain said Willie is a convicted felon, but he did not have details about his previous arrests.
Thomas Schlender, 74, of Raymond, Neb., was found dead in his car on Interstate 55 in Panola County on May 8 around 1:30 a.m. Lori Anne Carswell, 48, of Hernando, Miss. was found dead near her car on Mississippi Highway 713 in nearby Tunica County about 2:15 a.m. on May 11.
Strain said authorities developed several theories during the investigation and one of those was that someone could be posing as an officer to pull people over because there was no apparent reason for the victims to pull over.

George Zimmerman Update


During witness testimony the state called the experts to get them on the record. An FBI expert found crucial evidence in the Trayvon Martin case was inconclusive, saying it was impossible to tell if the voice screaming for help belonged to the black Florida teenager or his shooter George Zimmerman just before the neighborhood watch captain pulled the trigger. A Forensics Doctor that treated and did the autopsy stated that Trayvon Martin had marijuana in his system. He was shot through the heart at close range. George Zimmerman had a broken nose, bruises and bloody cuts on the back of his head. The evidence supports Zimmerman's contention that he was being beat up when he fired the fatal shot. These are among the details revealed in nearly 200 pages of documents, photos and audio recordings that were released Thursday in a case that has riveted the nation. Yet it's still unclear what exactly happened and whether it was racially motivated.

Lodge 7 files a grievance

The union that represents rank-and-file Chicago police officers has filed a grievance over the department’s plans to pay overtime to thousands of cops who work this weekend for the NATO summit, saying by contract that officers should also be given an option of taking time due instead.
The Fraternal Order of Police, on its web site, contends the department is violating its collective bargaining agreement by mandating only overtime for officers working this weekend and not also offering days off as compensation.

A spokeswoman for the Chicago Police Department was not immediately available for comment on the FOP grievance.

The union said it has received a lot of complaints from officers that the department has printed new overtime slips that already have the “money” box checked. The FOP said is recommending that any officers who wish to be compensated with days off to cross out the money box on the slip and check the “time” box.

Earlier this week, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy acknowledged that canceling days off for the entire department—from Friday through Monday—would be costly but help the department provide security for the NATO summit downtown as well as continue to fight crime in the neighborhoods.

Sarge's silver Chevrons awarded to the U.S. Secret Service Uniform officer

An Evergreen Park motorist was charged today after a hit-and-run crash that left a 24-year-old woman critically injured near Grant Park this week.
Carl J. Miller, 54, of the 8700 block of South Mozart Street, was charged with felony leaving the scene of an accident involving injury or death, failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, striking a pedestrian in the roadway, operating a vehicle without insurance and failure to report an accident, according to a statement from police News Affairs.

The woman was walking in the 500 block of South Lake Shore Drive around 8 a.m. Wednesday when she was hit by a maroon car, according to Officer John Mirabelli, a police spokesman.

A Secret Service agent stopped the car Miller was driving at 200 E. Jackson Blvd., notified Chicago police and waited for officers to arrive, according to a spokesman for the agency. The agent is assigned to the uniformed division of the Secret Service, but it was not known whether he was in uniform.

The victim was in critical condition as of Thursday afternoon, according to Officer Veejay Zala, a police spokesman.

The woman was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, according to Fire Department spokesman Will Knight.

The car sustained “severe” windshield damage, according to Central District Police Lt. Richard Guerrero.

Protester's lawyer up after C.P.D. raided a house

Officers wearing Chicago Police uniforms raided an apartment in Bridgeport late Wednesday and detained at least eight activists without justification, lawyers working on behalf of NATO protesters alleged today.

Police refused to provide any details about the alleged raid or whether they were detaining people.

Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy was asked about the allegation after announcing at a news conference this afternoon that there had been “zero arrests, as far as protest activity today.”

Asked about the Bridgeport incident, McCarthy said only that there was an “inquiry” authorities were looking into and he would have to gather further information before commenting.

An hour later, his spokeswoman declined to answer any questions about the situation.

A spokesman for the National Lawyers Guild, which represents protesters, said lawyers were speaking with some of those detained at a police facility at 3340 W. Fillmore St. on the West Side.

“The Chicago Police Department has basically disappeared as many as eight activists,” said Kris Hermes, a spokesman for the National Lawyers Guild, adding “There’s absolutely no evidence of wrongdoing.”

Hermes declined to release the names of those detained. He said the NLG had been speaking with police leaders throughout the day Thursday, and that they denied anyone was being held.

Witnesses who alleged they were detained at the scene before being released said police broke down doors in an apartment building near 32nd and Morgan Streets at 11 p.m., and searched the units while refusing to show the occupants a search warrant, said Sarah Gelsomino, an attorney with the lawyers guild.

The officers then left but returned with a warrant that witnesses claimed was not signed, she said.

When police detained the people, they also seized parts of a beer-making kit, including bottles and caps, and a cell phone, Gelsomino said.

Zoe Sigman, an Occupy activist who said she lives in the building, appeared at the lawyers guild news conference to speak about the incident.

Sigman said she was returning home Wednesday evening when she bumped into a neighbor coming down the block in the other direction who told her police were at the building.

She denied anything illegal was happening in the apartment where a number of Occupy Chicago protesters had been staying for two weeks leading up to this weekend’s NATO summit.

“I know that for a fact,” she said. “It was just a home base. It was a place for people to eat and get some sleep.”
