The illegal immigrant wanted for allegedly killing two people in a hit-and-run case in Kentucky had been deported eight times, the Department of Justice has confirmed.
Miguel Angel Villasenor-Saucedo, 40, is wanted for the Oct. 22 drunken car crash that killed two women in Louisville. Villasenor-Saucedo was most recently deported in 2013.
“Villasenor-Saucedo fled the scene and [Louisville police] officers later obtained a criminal complaint from the Jefferson County District Court charging Villasenor-Saucedo with leaving the scene of a fatal hit and run accident,” the Justice Department said in a statement. “A warrant has been issued for Villasenor-Saucedo’s arrest.”
The statement said the DOJ learned soon after the accident that Villasenor-Saucedo was an illegal immigrant from Mexico.
