A Watsonville gang leader accused of murder is being held on $1 million bail after the district attorney told a judge that Jose Velasquez and other gang members stabbed a man 80 times, then left his bloody body near a Pajaro Valley berry field.

District Attorney Bob Lee gave new details about the gruesome killing during the first court appearance for Velasquez, 25, one of two Watsonville men who have been arrested and charged with murdering Oscar Avalos Sanchez, 35, and dumping his body off Carlton Road earlier this month.

"The facts of this case include 80 stabbings," Lee said. "It was almost to the point of torture."

All of the 80 stabs punctured Sanchez's sweatshirt, 60 penetrated his undershirt and 40 went into his skin, Lee said. Several were mortal.

Sheriff's Office detectives have said Velasquez and Alejandro Chavez, 22, are equally responsible for killing Sanchez, who was an acquaintance, on Jan. 6. Chavez was arrested last week in Missouri and is expected to be extradited to California next week.

The current invasion is reminiscent of the movie Scarface and the days when Castro opened every jail cell and mental health facility and sent every degenerate in Cuba to this country.

Why is giving amnesty to another 20 million violent criminals from SOB and other 3rd world countries even a consideration? .

Yet immigrant groups howl when our own govt tries to put programs in place to identify and deport felons. If they tasted the violence from these criminals first hand they would think different.

Agreed. The ACLU is no different from the Chamber of Commerce, LaRaza, LuLac, Maldef, etc.

The fact that amnesty is being considered for millions of virtually unidentifiable criminals is insane. If they have no problem coming here and squatting illegally, and partaking in the commission of further crimes in order to remain here, what makes anyone in our government believe that amnesty will magically transform them into honest, law abiding citizens?

Just because this sick individual was from Mexico it doesn't automatically turn this into an immigration issue.
