This is why we need a wall and military on the border.
With the incoming caravans from central America, this will get a lot worse fast.
Calling it calculated, tragic and heartbreaking, Hanford Police Captain Karl Anderson said that this kind of crime just doesn’t happen in their community.
Monday, Anderson spoke at a news conference about the gruesome torture and murder of a Vietnam War veteran and retired contractor at Naval Air Station Lemoore.

Police revealed new details about the case Monday, including the relationship between the victim and suspects.
They say 70-year-old Kenneth Coyle met Stacie Mendoza at a Hanford restaurant, where she was a waitress.
They became friends, but in recent weeks, Mendoza began to gain access to his personal financial information.
“And we think she manipulated that relationship to gain his trust and defraud him of money,” Anderson said.
In an attempt to get even more personal information from him, Hanford Police believe Stacie and her husband Jose Mendoza went to Coyle’s house on April 5th or 6th, where they restrained, beat, and ultimately killed him.
