Did you read this?? Another ILLEGAL another crime??
Wednesday, 08/23/06 Neighbor charged in death of Bellevue woman in home Police say suspected illegal immigrant admitted killing By CHRISTIAN BOTTORFF Staff Writer The remnants of a brutal and lengthy fight were scattered throughout Mary Sadler's 229 Cross Timbers Drive home on Tuesday. Police found Sadler's cockatiel, Aussie, cowering in a corner with a broken wing. The bird later died at an emergency clinic. A glass panel from a grandfather clock was shattered. A mirror in the front foyer was cracked, and glass spilled out onto the floor. Nearby, police found Sadler, 74, dead, her beaten and bloody body by a rear sliding-glass door inside the home. "It was one hell of a fight," her grandson-in-law, Paul Woods, said Tuesday as he helped clean debris from the living room. "I think she did a good job for being 74 years old and trying to defend herself." According to Metro police, the man who on Monday killed Sadler, and perhaps Sadler's bird, was Ivan Moreno, 30, a next-door neighbor. Moreno, who is thought to be an illegal immigrant from Mexico, admitted to police that he struck Sadler after he went to her house to get money, said Metro police spokesman Don Aaron. Moreno was arrested yesterday on a charge of criminal homicide. He also faces two charges of assaulting police officers during his arrest and a domestic assault charge after threatening his wife in Spanish that he would kill her if she cooperated with authorities, police said. Moreno's possible illegal presence in the country was a sore spot yesterday for Sadler's family and neighbors. They expressed contempt for landlords who rented a duplex to Moreno and his family. Police initially said Sadler had been beaten to death, but an autopsy yesterday found that she had also been strangled, Aaron said. It was not clear exactly what touched off the violence inside the home. Moreno had gone to Sadler's house to ask for money. Sometime after the killing, he went to a Mapco on Highway 70 South where he became belligerent after being refused cigarettes because he didn't have enough money, police said. Moreno left the Mapco before police arrived and drove back to his neighborhood. Neighbors saw him driving recklessly through yards and called police. Officers arrived at Cross Timbers Drive to find his car abandoned with a shredded tire, police said. He was identified moments later and found to have an outstanding warrant for failing to show up in court in June on a charge of driving without a license, police said. Officers went to his home at 233 Cross Timbers Drive, but Moreno wasn't there. As they prepared to leave, they spotted him behind Sadler's home with blood on his clothes, police said. According to police, Moreno kicked two officers who tried to arrest him. Moreno appears to have used false documents and a fake name to land a job at a West End Avenue restaurant, police said. Federal authorities are working to determine his immigration status. The killing prompted a joint statement by Metro police Chief Ronal Serpas, Sheriff Daron Hall and District Attorney General Torry Johnson, announcing plans to reform the way criminal immigrants are handled in Nashville. "While it is premature at this point to announce any plans or initiatives, suffice it to say that the three of us are working closely with the federal government to develop a system to better protect our citizens from immigrants who commit criminal acts and show a blatant disregard for our laws," the statement said. Investigators have said they didn't know of any animosity between Moreno and Sadler before Monday, though a police spokesman said a hand-held video game and other undisclosed items from Sadler's home were found in Moreno's home, police said. Sadler's family and neighbors yesterday told The Tennessean there had been disputes between them. One recent spat involved one of Moreno's children shooting a BB gun at tomatoes in Sadler's back yard, a family member said. Police yesterday declined to comment about that. "We are still early in the investigation," Aaron said. "We will be talking to Mrs. Sadler's family in more detail." For all you WHINERS!!! "Hold Em Rox" just explained to you the DIFFERENCE between crimes committed by legal citizens,and those committed by ILLEGAL aliens!!! The crimes by illegals should NEVER have happened in the first place,and would NOT have happened if the illegals were not in this country!! "michelle g" This incident is NOT a "one time" thing!!! Over a MILLION violent crimes are committed each year by ILLEGALS!!!!!! "gidget' NO, i don't "go looking for these articles"!!!! But, all you have to do is READ the newspaper, and you always find them whether you're mlooking or NOT!!!! "gidget' NO, i don't "go looking for these articles"!!!! But, all you have to do is READ the newspaper, and you always find them whether you're looking or NOT!!!!

This is sickening. It sounds like this Moreno character is trying to apply Mexican law (which is an oxymoron) to the US. Probably figured he would get away with it by bribing somebody.
Answered By: Ex-Patriot - 8/23/2006
Another one of many" Preventable" Crime if laws were followed and illegals were not here. Close the borders and deport and screen all who come and make it tougher to come. We have enough of our own criminals without adding thousands more.
