EL PASO- A U.S. Federal Court worker and UTEP lecturer is dead tonight.
Somebody kidnapped Jorge Dieppa and murdered him in Juarez. According to UTEP’s website, he lectured for them and also worked as an interpreter and translator for El Paso Federal Court. Mexican police found Dieppa stabbed to death 16 days ago, on July 6 - in Juarez.
His hands were tied and his mouth was covered. Mexican media is reporting that Dieppa went to Juarez to have his truck worked on. Juarez police say during his visit, three people, Victor Alfonzo Cano Molina, Lizbeth Nayeli Alanis, and Antonio Tarango Montes.
The three people and another suspect that hasn't been caught kidnapped him and then demanded a ransom from his family. Three days ago, police arrested them during a separate investigation and linked them to Dieppa's murder.
"At the time they seemed responsible for the death of a U.S. government employee," says Manuel Torres with Juarez Police.
Police say Lizbeth Nayeli Alanis told them she was Dieppa's lover, and she lured him in to be kidnapped. Police say Diappa recognized her and the family never paid the ransom, so the kidnappers killed him.
The FBI isn't commenting on Diappa's murder because it's their policy not to talk about active investigations.
