The white teen would have still been alive if he’d just avoided Mexicans like the plague.
Instead, he was driving around with two of them.
The trial of a 20-year-old man accused of gunning down four people has been delayed as it becomes a capital punishment case.
On the night of February 3, 2019, Jacob Montgomery, 19, Juan Duarte Raya, 18, and Yuliana Garcia, 17, were found dead inside a Toyota Corolla that crashed into a parked Jeep near the intersection of Sunny Dunes and El Placer roads.
30 minutes later, Carlos Campos Rivera, 25, was also found dead on Canon Drive.
Jose Larin-Garcia was identified as the suspect behind all four deaths. He was arrested at a Greyhound bus station in Indio on February 4.
According to PSPD Officer Colantuono, Larin-Garcia told the officer when he responded to the scene, “How can I be okay? I just witnessed a murder,” when questioned.
A PSPD detective detailed what was reportedly found in Larin-Garcia’s room during the investigation; long-sleeve shirt with blood on it, ammunition magazines, a pistol case for a Glock, and gun-cleaning supplies.
Larin-Garcia’s attorney John Patrick Dolan told News Channel 3 that his client was friends with Montgomery. According to Detective Steve Grissom, Larin-Garcia was also friends with Carlos Campos Rivera.
Dolan also said Larin-Garcia was in the car with Montgomery, Garcia, and Duarte Raya on the night of their killings.
