I recently reported on the arrest of Mexican national Jose Lopez Madrigal in Edmonds, Washington for rape. Early reports indicated that he had been previously deported four times.
However, through confidential law enforcement sources and government documents, the investigative news team at KING 5 in Seattle has discovered that Madrigal has actually been deported back to Mexico a total of nine times.
On the evening of May 16, a police officer responding to a woman’s cries for help, caught Madrigal, 46, on top of a woman, raping her. Madrigal had forced the woman into the bushes behind a Safeway in Edmonds, Washington.
According to the arrest affidavit, Madrigal approached the woman, offering her $35 for sex. When she said no, the illegal alien dragged her behind the store and raped her.
The 28-year-old rape victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Madrigal reportedly told police: “Sometimes we have control in our brains, but we make mistakes.”
Madrigal has been charged with rape, and is also being held on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer. Police report that the illegal alien has a total of 35 different aliases.
Due to his numerous aliases, police had to rely on fingerprint records to identify Madrigal.
Madrigal has a lengthy crimial record in this country, dating back to 1989, when he was convicted of theft with a firearm in California. After that, he was deported twice, before his next arrest on this side of the border.
In 1999, he was arrested for drug distribution in San Diego and San Francisco. He was deported three times that year alone, between April and August.
In 2000, Madrigal was arrested again for drug distribution in Stockton, Ca.
In 2002, he pleaded guilty to sexual assault in Denver, and deported again.
In 2003, he was deported three more times.
