Migrant charged with murder of 12-year-old Jocelyn Nungaray was released into U.S. just weeks ago | 20 June 2024 | Police in Houston have arrested two migrants from Venezuela for the murder of 12-year-old Jocelyn Nungaray, who was lured away from home and then strangled and dumped in a bayou. One of the suspects crossed the border illegally less than a month before the shocking murder and was released into the U.S. after claiming he was afraid for his life if he was sent back to his home country, sources told The Post. Johan Jose Rangel Martinez, 21, and Franklin Jose Pena Ramos, 26, were charged Thursday with capital murder. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sources said Pena Ramos crossed into El Paso, Texas, on May 28. He was released soon after his interaction with border agents.
