“Unknown to many people who followed the Hawks case, Skylar’s need to pay for the surgery was a primary motive for murdering the couple.”
In one of the most heinous crimes to date, Skylar Deleon, along with his wife and other accomplices, committed the unthinkable crime.
Thomas and Jackie Hawks were a couple from Prescott, Arizona who were murdered in 2004. In April 2009, Skylar Julius Deleon and Jennifer Henderson were convicted on charges relating to their murders. Deleon was sentenced to death while Henderson was sentenced to two terms of life in prison without parole.
Two other people, John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Alonso Machain, were also separately convicted of the killings. Kennedy was sentenced to death while Machain accepted a plea bargain after testifying for the prosecution in the trials of Deleon, Henderson, and Kennedy. He was sentenced to 20 years and 4 months in prison.
Thomas Hawks was a retired probation officer and bodybuilder. He and his second wife Jackie (formerly of Mentor-on-the-Lake, Ohio), owned a 55-foot yacht, the Well Deserved, which they treated as their permanent home and on which they sailed for two years around the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of California. In 2004, they decided to sell their yacht and set up home in Newport Harbor, to be closer to their grandchild. Jackie (née O’Neill) had helped raise Tom’s sons since their early teens, and considered the new baby her grandson.
Their advertisement of the sale of the yacht was answered in November by Skylar Deleon. The couple was initially cautious of Deleon, but they became more receptive when he brought his then-pregnant wife Jennifer and their other child to a meet up. The Hawks were last seen alive on the morning of November 15, 2004, heading out of the harbor. The yacht returned, but they did not. Their bodies have not been found.
Police inquired into the couple’s disappearance. On November 26, 2004, an attempt was made to access the Hawks’ bank account from Mexico. The family was notified and filed a missing-persons report with the Carlsbad police department.
Others involved in the crimes were:
- Jennifer Henderson, wife of Deleon.
- Alonso Machain, former Seal Beach correctional officer who met Deleon while Deleon was serving time in prison for burglary.
- John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Insane Crips gang member in Long Beach and former youth pastor, ex-convict for attempted murder, recruited the same day of the murder.
- Myron Sandora Gardner, Sr., former Insane Crips gang member and ex-convict for involuntary manslaughter, who met Deleon at work after Deleon’s release from prison, declined to participate in the crime but introduced Deleon to Kennedy.
On November 29, the police interviewed Skylar Deleon. He told them that he bought the boat from the Hawks and showed them proof-of-purchase documents. He stated to police that the Hawks left in their car with his money, denied being in their car, and named Alonso Machain as witness to the purchase. The reason that he bought the boat, he claimed, was that he intended to launder money related to an armed burglary in 2002 for which he had been convicted.
In March 2005, after initially fleeing to Mexico and then returning, Machain confessed to the crime. He was arrested in connection with the couple’s disappearance, along with Deleon and Deleon’s wife, Jennifer. Skylar Deleon initially maintained his innocence, claiming that he was not present at the time and speculating that the Hawks were killed over a drug deal gone bad.
So, let’s make clear as to what is being reported here. Skylar Deleon is convicted of killing three innocent people. He is sentenced to death according to Scripture.
“Your eye shall not pity: life shall be for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.” -Deuteronomy 19:21
Where is Skylar now? He is set up for the rest of his miserable and cursed life on the American taxpayer’s dime: 3 meals a day, rehabilitation, schooling, etc.
And last but not least, on March 13, 2008, Deleon partially severed his penis with a razor blade while being held in jail. After receiving medical attention, he was returned to jail the following day. In an interview with ABC’s 20/20, Deleon indicated that he attempted to cut off his penis because he wanted to be a woman.
Skylar Deleon “legally” becomes a woman while on death row: Part 11. A former detective said he’s taking hormones and has petitioned for gender reassignment surgery.
Author Caitlin Rother said Skylar is now wearing women’s clothes (Deuteronomy 22:5).
And with the death penalty off the table, he wins.
Friends, is this the correctional institution or the advocators of crime, dysfunction and confusion?
Either way, Skylar is rewarded, at least temporarily (Revelation 21:5).Skylar committing the murders worked to his advantage, he goes to jail and the state funds him the money in his ridiculous attempt at becoming a woman.
In May of 2015, a federal judge gave orders to the state of California to provide sexual reassignment surgery to a transgender female inmate housed at the men’s Mule Creek State Prison.
A transgender inmate housed in San Diego, who has been denied the surgery, also has filed a lawsuit in federal court.
Criminals filing lawsuits? Really, they lost their rights when they committed the crimes of which they are guilty (1 John 3:4).
The bottom line is that the state rewards the man’s intent to murder, a system that is, in fact, helping create the monsters and crimes which they are to prevent and condemn (Deuteronomy 25:1).
