    AL/FL/CA JOSE MARTINEZ, Drug Cartel Hitman, Confesses to 30 Murders

    In interviews with detectives, Martinez confessed to the Florida killings and said he's committed more than 30 killings during his life.

    Marion County detectives and Alabama authorities have been able to confirm at least 11 murder victims that Martinez said he killed, Marion County Detective T.J. Watts said. Authorities across the country are working to identify all of the people the suspect said he killed.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Snip....

    Deputies said Martinez shot Javier Huerta and Gustavo Olivares-Rivas on Highway 19 just north of State Road 40 in the Ocala National Forest back in Nov. 8, 2006.

    snip....“From his statements, he’s killed over 30 people throughout the United States so this is what he does, he’s an individual who goes around and collects debts for the cartels and kills people,” said Det. TJ Watts with the sheriff's office.

    Looks like states involved so far are Ala., Fl. and Cal.

    snip.....Jose Manuel Martinez, 50, of Richgrove, Calif., remains in Lawrence County Jail without bail, charged with murder in the March 4 shooting death of 32-year-old Jose Ruiz. Though Martinez worked as debt collector for both cartels and individuals and was sometimes paid to kill, the shooting of Ruiz was personal, a Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department investigator said.

    snip...
    Marion County investigators on Monday obtained a warrant charging Martinez with two counts of premeditated murder in the double-slaying of two construction workers, Javier Huerta, 20, and Gustavo Olivares-Rivas, 28, killed by multiple gunshot wounds and found in a pickup near the Marion-Lake County line Nov. 6, 2006.

    Someone else had been arrested in the Ruiz case, but has now been released.

    Another man arrested in Ruiz's death, Jaime Roman Romero, 41, Huntsville, has since been cleared. Authorities said they believe he didn't know the killing was going to take place when he drove the two from Decatur to Speake.

    He says he killed the others because he was hired. However he allegedly killed Ruiz because Ruiz made remarks about Martinez's mother.

    He allegedly confessed to 30 killings, with his first at age 16.

    WHNT reports Martinez has been linked to two unsolved killings in Florida and at least 10 more in California.

    Accused killer Jose Manuel Martinez had a visit from his court appointed attorney Friday afternoon. Mike Terry tells WHNT News 19 he is preparing a defense for Martinez and has advised him to stop talking to investigators, cell mates, or anyone else for that matter.

    How he was caught:

    Authorities were reexamining the evidence from a cold case file dating back to 2006 in the Volusia County, Florida, double murder of construction workers Javier Huerta, 20, and Gustavo Olivares-Rivas, 28, when the DNA from a cigarette butt in a Mountain Dew can in the victim's truck turned up a positive hit on Martinez.

    Martinez said he lured the men to a house by posing as someone who recently bought a house in Volusia County and wanted an estimate on some work.

    Martinez said he pulled out two 9 mm handguns — each with a 15-round magazine — and forced Olivares-Rivas to call his wife to get money he had hidden in a safe buried in their back yard.

    Martinez said he eventually got $170,000 from the home of Olivares-Rivas and another $40,000 from the pickup. He said he tortured Olivares-Rivas, forced them to tie up each other and then shot them.

    Authorities there extradited him to Alabama, where he confessed first to killing Ruiz, then to two more murders in Florida, and eventually to 30, including 11 in California alone.

    However, McWhorter said investigators have found that Martinez is “very specific about the details of the unsolved cases.”

    “He knows details that no one else would know except the killer. Spot on details,” McWhorter said.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    'Mano Negra' -- confessed Valley contract killer was known, feared, but invisible

    EARLIMART — Nobody knew what "Mano Negra," the Black Hand, looked like until this week. But it was common knowledge in many small farm towns in Tulare County that when a debt wasn't paid or someone got killed, he was probably involved.

    With ruthless efficiency, the Black Hand acted as a contract killer since 1980. But last year, when Mano Negra killed a man in Alabama, he got sloppy. It was personal, he acknowledged to an investigator, and all those years of killing had finally caught up with Jose Manuel Martinez.

    Word around Earlimart last week was that Martinez, 51, of Richgrove, will not kill anymore. In custody, he admitted to 34 killings in 12 states, said Capt. Tim McWhorter of the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office in Alabama.

    Tulare County District Attorney Tim Ward held a news conference to announce that six of those slayings happened in Tulare County and two in Kern County. Another occurred in Santa Barbara County, authorities allege.
