On Monday it was reported that Pedro Alberto Monterroso-Navas, a Honduran living in Louisiana, was arrested on charges of murder and kidnapping. He is now facing 2nd-Degree Murder charges in the violent death of his girlfriend, Heidi Monroy, who was also the mother of his youngest child.
The Associated Press reported the arrest on Monday:
A man faces a second-degree murder charge in the death of his girlfriend, who was found bludgeoned in her suburban New Orleans apartment over the weekend, officials said Monday.
Pedro Alberto Monterroso-Navas, 43, was arrested early Monday with his three children in a trailer park in Katy, Texas, Jefferson Parish sheriff’s Col. John Fortunato said.
“Unless he fights extradition to Jefferson Parish, he will be returned here and face a second-degree murder charge” in the death of Heidi Monroy, 24, Fortunato said.
Fortunato said Monterroso-Navas’ three children were with him at the time of his arrest and are safe. Monroy was the mother of the youngest, age 2.
The man, Pedro Alberto Monterroso-Navas, entered the U.S. illegally with children and turned himself in to U.S. Border Patrol agents. He was processed and released, as are all illegal immigrants who come as unaccompanied minors or incomplete family units from Central America. The alien is from Honduras.
The arrest was first reported by the Associated Press (AP), but Breitbart Texas has exclusively confirmed that the man was part of the Obama Administration’s catch and release policy for family groups from Central America.
A U.S. Border Patrol source who spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity provided Breitbart Texas with the alien registration number for the man, and the event number for the man’s apprehension. He was processed in the McAllen station of the U.S. Border Patrol. The alien’s registration number is 202027386. The event number for his apprehension is MCS14061487. The “MCS” designates the McAllen station, the “1406” designates that the man was apprehended in June of 2014. A separate Border Patrol source confirmed that the man was apprehended on June 26, 2014 with two children he claimed were his own. He told U.S. authorities he had family in Metairie, Louisiana.
Honduras has the highest homicide rate in the world at 90.4 per 100,000 population according to a United Nations report. That rate is roughly 5 times higher than Chicago, which recorded an 18.5 per 100,000 homicide rate as recently as 2012. Coincidentally El Salvador is ranked 4th and Guatemala is 5th on the list of countries with the most homicides per 100,000.
