2 More Persons Sought for the Callous Killing of Ofelia Hernandez Cruz

Ofelia Hernandez Cruz

Sixty-nine-year-old Ofelia Hernandez Cruz was bludgeoned to death inside her home in Sand Hill Village.  Her body was discovered on Tuesday afternoon and it is believed that she was attacked and killed by two young men who managed to enter her house in search of her husband’s licensed shotgun.  The shocking and cold-blooded murder of the Mexican national has resulted in the detention of several persons, but investigators are now searching for two additional persons whom they believe can assist in the investigation.  According to ACP Joseph Myvett, the persons of interests were seen in the area prior to the callous murder.

“So does the police knowing if these people are from around the area, were conducting surveillance on them?”
