If you live some place where Mexicans are rare, you probably don’t see many stories like this bizarre incident. Lucky you.
Weird news of heinous murders and crazy sex are common in the San Antonio area. You may remember the story of Julie Mott, whose body was stolen from a San Antonio funeral home. I had several posts on it back in 2015, I believe it was.
The story at hand, the murder of a prostitute, would not be newsworthy in this area. But there’s a twist. Read on and be prepared to be shocked.
SAN ANTONIO — A 29-year-old man was arrested Sunday for allegedly strangling a prostitute and letting an acquaintance have sex with her body before setting her on fire in a South Side garage, according to court documents.
Javier Hernandez allegedly confessed to an unnamed witness that he killed a prostitute by strangling her and burning her body next to his home. Prior to burning her body, an acquaintance of the suspect allegedly had sex with the dead woman’s body, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by mySA.com.
The witness told police Hernandez appeared excited and full of “adrenaline” after allegedly committing the crime, the affidavit said.
Police found her badly burned body on Jan. 22 in a detached garage in the 300 block of West Harding Boulevard. An arson-sniffing dog was brought to the scene and detected an accelerant used in the creation of the fire, according to the arrest affidavit.
Her body was so badly burned that the only identifying information police had was a part of her back that was not burned. That portion of her back had a tattoo and a photo of it was shared with the media, according to previous reports.
The woman has yet to be identified, said SAPD spokesman Douglas Greene.
She is described as being Hispanic and between 18 and 35 years old. She appears to have had brown hair and breast implants and a tattoo on her lower back, previous reports said.
Police charged Hernandez with first-degree murder on Sunday.
If convicted, he faces five to 99 years or life in prison.
I believe the feds still count Hispanics as white, so this horrific crime will go down in the books as a white on white crime, thus inflating the white crime rate. We ought to change that and give Latinos their own category in the crime statistics.
