MRC TV reported:
Guadalajara native Robert Francis Van Wisse, 51, crossed the U.S. border on foot at a port of entry in Laredo, Texas on Jan. 26 and was referred for a secondary inspection. After running his biometric data, agents discovered Van Wisse was wanted for murder in Austin, Texas, for a homicide that occurred more than 30 years ago.
According to reports, Laurie Stout, the female owner of a janitorial service was found dead in a building she’d been hired to clean at around 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 19, 1983. She’d been sexually assaulted and strangled to death with a wire. She had a one-year-old daughter at the time.
Van Wisse, an 18-year-old college student at the time, was originally connected with the murder, but detectives couldn’t find enough concrete evidence to charge him. But thanks to updated technology, forensic investigators were able to finally link Van Wisse to the crime in 1996. The following year, he was also charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, and had been on the run ever since.
Customs and Border Protection stated he’ll be turned over to Homeland Security Investigations and the FBI for extradition to Travis County, where he’ll face justice.
This is fantastic news, and hopefully something we will begin to hear more and more of now that President Donald Trump has thrown the shackles off of law enforcement in this country.
When government gets out of the way and allows people to do their jobs, it is incredible what Americans are able to do.
Law enforcement has done incredible things in spite of the government and now with a president that is removing the roadblocks in their way it will be very interesting to see what they are able to accomplish.
