Suspect in 2006 Ocala Murder Says He’s Killed 30 Across U.S.

Dave D'Marko, CF News, June 13, 2013

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office says they’ve solved a double homicide case from 2006–and the suspect may be responsible for some 30 murders across the country.

A major break in the case came on Feb. 27 when lab results from a cigarette butt recovered inside the victims’ truck revealed a DNA profile of Jose Martinez.

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.


At the time, Marion County deputies didn’t know what the Volusia Construction workers were doing there, or why they were killed. As years passed, the case was turned over to cold case investigators.


Detectives noticed a cigarette butt in a soda can that had never been processed. On a hunch they sent it to FDLE and it came back with 50 year-old Jose Manuel Martinez’s DNA.

When they went looking for him, they realized he was already wanted for a murder in Alabama. He was captured crossing the Mexican border in Arizona last month, and Marion County Detectives went to talk him. {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.

They say Martinez confessed to luring Huerta and his co-worker to a Volusia County construction site, because Huerta had stolen 10 kilos of cocaine worth $210,000. Martinez told deputies Huerta paid him the money, but it wasn’t enough.

“He didn’t want people to identify him at a later date, that’s why he killed them,” Watts said. “Normally when he goes and collects debts he kills people.”


Investigators say Martinez wouldn’t say who he was working for in the Mexican drug cartel for fear of safety for his family.

    Spanish ‘family values’…

      “I don’t use any of those leftist terms like ‘Hispanic’ or ‘Latino’ or ‘Chicano’ or any of the rest of them.”

      Then what do you call Mexicans, Guatemalans, Venezuelans, Colombians, etc? There needs to be a catch-all term for South and Central Americans. I don’t like using a word invented by leftists, but Hispanic seems to work decently for it.

      • MekongDelta69

        Spanish – as in Spanish speaking.
        Or ‘Hispandex’.

      • DudeWheresMyCountry?

        Um… Browns. I hate the leftist term Hispanic; a designation of language used to classify people’s race? What a sham. Latin also is another leftist term that needs to go; the brown pigmies of Central America had nothing to do with the region and languages of Hispania or the Latin language of Italian antiquity.


      People invading America’s southern border are NOT Spaniards! Many are a “mix”, and I could be wrong but I believe the proper term would be Mestizo.

    (Sigh) Another Dreamer doing the hit jobs that American gangsters won’t do.

  • OlderWoman

    Life in America thanks to Bush and that fraud in the White House.

  • Jose Martinez ….. a white?

    • robinbishop34

      I guess he’s another ‘white hispanic’ like George Zimmerman.

  • Morris LeChat

    sounds like he was doing his best to keep down the number of illegals

    • The__Bobster

      Then we need a lot more like him.

      • Morris LeChat

        exactly my point

  • Greg Thomas

    Mexican “family values” do not stop at the Rio Grande, as we are reminded of once again.
    Nevertheless, but for that cigarette butt, this “hard working, doing the
    jobs Americans will not do” hispanic, would have been the poster child for amnesty.

  • The__Bobster

    When they went looking for him, they realized he was already wanted for a murder in Alabama. He was captured crossing the Mexican border in Arizona last month, and Marion County Detectives went to talk him.

    I guess this is as close as the author can come to call this scumbag an illegal alien.

    Funneling hispanic crimes into the “white” category is the last ditch effort by leftists to hide the massive gap between white and minority crime. If you take blacks and hispanics out of all crime data instantly, the US would be the safest first world nation globally. Just like that. Kids could play in the street again, young white girls wouldn’t have to fear for their lives when walking home alone at night, and we could focus our money elsewhere after being able to cut back on law enforcement. This is why race realism is so important. There are implications that could literally save billions of dollars as well as save lives. Most of all, it can save our race if the truth is out there that blacks genetically will always act like this, and no matter how much money you throw in the inner-cities, it will stay the same. No more affirmative action, no more overcrowded prisons, no more kids dying from stray bullets in gang shootouts, no more rapes of white women, etc.

    This hispanic will now be considered the infamous “white hispanic” like Zimmerman, and the data will now show 31 more murders by white men that are totally bogus. I thought white men always turned out to be the serial killers…then we had Cho from Virginia Tech, Dorner in Cali, the DC sniper, and now Martinez. Now that’s what I call a diverse group of serial killers!

    • BonusGift

      You are exactly correct. Firstly, in a nation that is 100% (or nearly so) white then, by definition all serial killers (i.e., if there are any) in such a country will be white. Secondly, the ‘only white men are serial killers’ meme has always been some odd (i.e., odd to a rational thinking person) kind of cultural Marxist slogan and psychological projection. Thirdly and lastly, we wouldn’t save billions but trillions; and yes, it would be a relative paradise to what we have now.

  • David Ashton

    This is indeed unfair to the white people of Spain and those in the southern cone of “Latin” America. Brazilian Portuguese-speakers are not Spanish either. West Indians speak “English” but are not English (nor Indian). A Gringo surely is entitled to use the term Chicano.

  • Romulus

    No habla the rule of law. If like the groids, where so many murders occur in the hood ( in this case barrio), if their killing each other,great!

  • Romulus

    Yes, someone else that knows the difference.

  • Sloppo

    I think you could go over there and make money doing that in comedy clubs.

  • Sloppo

    I agree that we be living in a paradise compared to what we have now, but can you be sure we would really have lower crime rates than Japan? They’re a pretty well behaved group of people too.

  • Stan Hess

    “They” like the term Raza.

    There would also be the accumulative effect of capital formation by the end of White flight. The integration of White communities cause large devaluation of property. Whites who are not on the cutting edge of White flight generally have to sell their property at a substantial loss and begin to rebuild their wealth elsewhere. There are also the loss of public assets that have been years in the creation. The end of Jim Crow has been devastating to the ability of Whites to accumulate wealth over generations and even for shorter periods for many Whites.

  • John Smith

    A lot of these Hispanic immigrants and anchor street gang members have killed many people over their lives. I was watching one of those gangland documentaries on the Orange County jail and they had a Sureno in their stating he had committed over 30 murders. He said he could admit to them because he would die of natural causes on death row (where they have better color TVs) since they don’t really execute people in California anymore. He said it like it was normal in his circle of friends.

  • Sherman_McCoy

    OK. I will say it. Obama’s white background means nothing. A turd mixed with ice cream is still a turd.
