Suspects Arrested For Allegedly Causing Fatal Crash In Indio

INDIO (CBS) — Two men and two boys suspected of intentionally causing a fatal wreck in Indio are under arrest today, while a fifth suspect remains at large.

Thaddeus Jovan Holland, 20, Jose Jamie Valencia, 18, and Alejandro Guijarro and Isauro Vicencio, both 17, were arrested by Indio police detectives Tuesday on suspicion of murder, attempted murder and other allegations in connection with a crash that killed two women Thursday night. A fifth suspect, Alfonso Verduzco, 17, of Indio is being sought.

“Our investigation had timely results due to the cooperation of people that came forward, and this is what it takes to help law enforcement find the suspects responsible for their crimes,” said Indio police Chief Bradley Ramos. “I want to thank our community for getting involved.”

Coachella residents Linda Franco Dominguez, 34, and Andrea Arias Chavez, 36 both died when the sport utility vehicle they were driving smashed into a light pole around 11:25 pm Thursday. A man and another woman suffered serious injuries. A child strapped into a car seat escaped largely unscathed.

Indio Police Commander Ben Guitron would not elaborate on what allegedly precipitated the crash but the suspects are responsible for a gang-related confrontation.

Holland and Valencia are being held in lieu of $1 million bail at the Indio Jail. Guijarro and Vicencio were booked into Indio Juvenile Hall.

    DEPORT ALL ILEGALLS! Especially the ones that are gang members. These losers deserve the death penalty for this crime. However, California is weak, when it comes to prosecuting killers.State prosecutors are out for a conviction. It looks good on their record. Most of these prosecutors makes deals with these lowlifes Killers. Our prison are full of lifers. And the taxpayers support them, for the rest of their forsaken life. I hope there will be a prosecutor with BALLS, and go for the DEATH PENALTY!

      Deport ‘all’ illegals ‘ esp the ones that are gang members’, So I suppose we can go around and ‘ask’ all gang members and ‘ask’ , Which of you are illegal ? Do you have any ‘more’ bright ideas ? The only weakness I see here is yours. The only ‘lowlifer’ I see here again is YOU. Who the hell are YOU to decide for anyone what to do with individuals who have NOT had a ‘trial’ yet ? You have no idea of what happened other than what was written here. Is THIS the ‘full ‘ case NO its NOT. Have you EVER served on ‘jury’ duty, I’m SURE you havn’t. All you do is run that cesspool you call a mouth and rant and rave ( usually signs of a ‘lunatic’ ) By the way the ONLY forsaken life here seems to be YOURS. How did you get so ‘bitter’ ???

    Only way to rid of gang problems in USA, setup firing squads & execute those criminals. No need to house, feed, & waste taxpayers $$$. Even when gang members goes to Prison, their families receive Welfare & taxpayers lose again.

    I agree, they should kill all gangsters. Not all gangsters are Mexican. Kill all of these white child molesters/rapists too.

    These idiots are not illegals, but they are gang members. Maybe if these woman would have been great role models then their children would not be a product of their environment. It really is not hard.
