Roommate suspected in woman's death
Uh...BORING! Anyway, I guess here in San Diego we are just so used to
SAN MARCOS – Mimi Rohwer took in a day laborer a few years ago, giving him room and board in her San Marcos mobile home while he looked for work.
But when deputies entered the home and discovered the 75-year-old woman's body early Wednesday, her roommate was nowhere to be found.
Yesterday, Julio Cesar Jacobo-Curiel, 57, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, became a suspect in a murder investigation after an autopsy revealed Rohwer had been strangled, sheriff's investigators said.
Obviously Crime Stoppers seems a little overly optimistic about catching Jacobo-Curiel:
Jacobo-Curiel was last seen leaving the Casitas del Sol mobile home park on Barham Drive in Rohwer's 1996 red Toyota Camry, bearing California license plates 3TRH829.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest. To leave an anonymous tip, call (888) 580-TIPS.
Uh...here's a safe bet. Jacobo-Curiel is GONE. The Mexican border is just a 40-minute Camry drive from San Marcos.
Jacobo-Curiel may have murdered the wrong senior citizen. Turns out Rohwer is a witch. Here's hoping she gets him from the afterlife:
Rohwer, who was a Wiccan high priestess, had met Jacobo-Curiel when he was in the neighborhood on a job moving a mobile home, Eades said. She offered him a place to stay while he tried to find more work.
She had recently been having problems with Jacobo-Curiel and wanted him to move out, Eades said.
