VIDEO: Texas Murder Suspect Deported THREE TIMES Before Latest Arrest
After a dramatic capture at an apartment complex as a nearby high school went on lockdown, police in Georgetown, Texas say they have the man charged with kidnapping and two murders in Dallas.
Silvestre Franco-Luviano, 43, was booked on murder charges and transferred to Dallas County Jail.
It wasn’t the first time he’d been behind bars, but it may be the first time under that name.
He has others. At least seven.
Records show legal contact with the Mexican national under the names: Silvestre Franco-Luviano, Silvestro Franco-Luviano, Guillermo Franco, Sibestre Franco, Silvestre Franco, Sylvester Franco and Juan Rios-Navarro.
A spokesman from the U.S. Marshal’s Office says Luviano – by any name – has been deported three times in the past.
He officially has “no status” to be in the United States.
“This is the outcome that we want. No injuries to citizens, officers or suspects so it worked out perfectly,” said Cory Tchida, Assistant Chief of Police with Georgetown Police Department. “The community that I serve has been terrified and understandably so when they start hearing about these acts that are alleged to have been committed by this suspect.”
Luviano is charged with multiple felonies in connection with a Sunday night crime spree starting with firing at vehicles on a U.S. Highway in Dallas, killing one occupant, before murdering a patron at a gas station and stealing his car.
He later injured a woman in another incident of shooting at vehicles on a highway.
Certain candidates say America needs to build bridges, not walls, but the families of the deceased, the injured woman and the communities that were gripped with terror while Luviano was on his one-man killing rampage may be thinking a wall would have kept out the man with so many aliases, someone who had been deported three times – and saved innocent lives.
