Police arriving on scene in North Carolina were shocked to find illegal migrant, Oliver Mauricio Funes Machado, holding his 35 year-old mother’s head in one hand and a large knife in the other. Eighteen year-old Machado is from Honduras and lived with his mother in Franklin County.
It is unknown how long Machado has been in the US, but his two younger sibling (ages two and three) were in the home at the time of the murder. Machado called the police himself just before 1 p.m. on Monday.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
A spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to The Daily Caller that Machado is in the U.S. illegally.
“ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) has issued a detainer for Oliver Funes-Machado, an unlawfully present Honduran national, following his arrest March 6 on local charges in Franklin County, North Carolina,” ICE spokesman Bryan Cox told TheDC in a statement.
ICE has placed a detainer against Machado, Cox said.
“When they arrived, he was with the decapitation in his hand and it was a gruesome scene,” Franklin Co. sheriff Kent Winstead told WRAL, a local news station.
