Undocumented and on the run, a man suspected of murdering his wife flees the country and law enforcement is left without many options
"After he killed my sister, he fled. We don't know exactly where," said Brenda Garcia.
Jose-Luis Discua-Bados, 31, is from Honduras. He's wanted by U.S. Marshals for first degree intentional homicide. He's accused of killing his estranged wife 24-year-old Dayana Garcia Bados.
Brenda Garcia, Dayana's little sister was at work the morning of January 3rd, 2012 when she got the phone call. "I got a call from my grandma and she said 'He killed her. He killed Dayanita," said Garcia. That phone call is nothing compared to what she saw when she pulled into Dayana's driveway.
"I saw a huge puddle of blood and pieces of a two-by-four broken, at that moment, i just started screaming," said Garcia.
"In Hispanic culture it's just, when you're married you have to work at it the best way and not get the police involved," said Garcia. It's believed that Bados fled the country.
"Once the level of violence gets severe, where now they aggressor is facing serious felony charges, often times they undocumented person will tend to flee," said Cpt. Alfonso Morales with the Milwaukee Police Department.
Dayana's story while tragic, isn't all that uncommon, criminals will often flee to avoid prosecution.
"There's culture of, they rather go back to their country than be in jail," said Patricia Ruiz-Cantu.
