The Story Of A Young Girl Who Lost Her Life To A Immigrant Killer.

Updated on December 1, 2017

Breanna's story can be seen on ID channel series Nightmare Next Door~Recipe For Murder.

Thinking of Breanna.

A killer comes to a small town. On the news, we see all the young children being murdered. It seems every day there's a new story. There are sick people walking around in our lives. You never know who you're working with or living next door to, it could be a killer. This young girl lost her life because of whom she worked with.

These murders are everywhere. Our children went to school with a boy who ended up killing an elderly lady. We never thought he would do this.

Our children are older, but we still have to worry about them. They're never safe. My cousin was killed because he stopped to help a motorist, they robbed him and killed him. Murder touches many families.

This is a story I hate to think about. It happened to us by accident. Remember you never know who is listening to your conversation. I've always tried to teach my children not to talk loud in public. We are not loud people.

One day we were visiting our daughter. It was Mother's Day a happy day for us. We went out to eat. Thinking this would be a great family day. The day didn't turn out the way we wanted it to.

While at the restaurant our daughter was telling us about the murder of an 18-year-old girl in her town. Everyone in town was worried because they had no idea who had killed her. We were not being loud and the room was empty when we first started to talk about this story.

The tables in the restaurant were so close to each other you could reach out and touch them easily. The waiter finally did bring in another family. Their table was very close to ours.

All at once a man got up and came to our table and told us to please stop talking about his daughter. We were in shock and upset. Our granddaughter started to cry. We felt really bad, but we were having a discussion about it because it's what people do when something this awful happens and when it’s all over the news and in the paper.

They later found her killer. He was an illegal immigrant who worked with her. If you want to see this story of Breanna's murder watch ID channel and a show called Nightmare Next Door, Recipe for Murder.

The fact is this man should not have even been here. He had a job he shouldn't have had. He was here so why didn't he make something of his life instead of taking the life of this young girl, just a child.

I often think about her and what her family has been through. Their sadness will never end.

The police did their job and found the killer very fast.

This Man Is A Killer

We felt awful about this. There is hardly a day goes by I don't think about this young girl. I know how awful I would feel if this happened to one of my children or grandchildren. I have no idea how the parents can go on.

It was a senseless awful murder just for cell phone and two pairs of underwear. We had heard around town this killer had heard Breanna and her boyfriend talking about the money they had saved and it was his real reason for going to her apartment to find the money. He's not talking so who knows if this is true. We believe this man should be put away for the rest of his life. I know if it were my child I would want him to get the death penalty so he would be gone to never hurt anyone again.

It only took 36 minutes for this monster to take Breanna's life.

Life in prison, he lives on and in 20 years or less may come out of prison free to kill someone else's child. He now sleeps in a nice warm bed, free food and no worries. We have to pay for his keep.

This is a small city but even in a small city terrible things happen.

We also live in a small town and terrible things happen here too, not often, but they do happen. People here still don't lock their doors, but I do.

There is no way to protect our children we just have to hope they stay safe. Many kids grow up thinking everyone is their friend, I know this for sure I have a few in my own family.

A murderer can come from anywhere. We have had many killer Americans and American-born, but we have to deal with them. It's too bad we also have to deal with illegal immigrant killers.

There has been another sad killing in California, the young lady's father was with her and couldn't save her from this illegal killer.

He runs free. The jurors seem to think he was an innocent man even though they know he killed her. He gets to murder another day.

      This is a very tragic story, and yes, we do have to pay attention to how loudly we speak in restaurants and other public places. I pray that senseless murders like this will stop in the future. Thanks for sharing this story. Voted up and sharing with followers. Also Pinning and sharing on Facebook.

      Kathryn Stratford, We were very shocked that they were there and sad that it was our family that made them uncomfortable. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.

      Peggy W , I always taught our kids not to talk loud in public were everyone can hear, now I have to teach my husband that. (he's hard of hearing). We were being loud but because of the placement of tables and not having anyone else there at first I think made it easy for them to hear us. Thanks so much for stopping by I appreciate the share and vote.

      That is sad. It must have been surprising when the man went to your table and asked you to stop talking about his daughter! It would seem unlikely that you'd ever cross paths.

      It is so sad that senseless murders and crimes happen so often.

      So many restaurants now have loud music and in places like that you can barely hear the people speaking right at your own table. Those are not the ones that I enjoy...but they are certainly popular! In your case, it is sad that family had to endure the senseless death of their daughter and that her dad was upset because of your talking about it. Am sure that many people were talking about it at the time! Hope the murderer got a fair punishment and could never do that again. So sad! Up, useful and interesting votes.

      Good reminder to be cognizant of who might be overhearing our conversations when in public! Will share just for that message alone.

      It is a fact we ought to be careful about what we speak in public and also be wary and observant of people at work and in general. Thanks for the reminder. This story of the young girl is pretty saddening.

      OMG! How sad. I am sure the grieving father did not mean any harm, he was just devastated over his baby girl. Bless you for also expressing how you feel about the whole thing. The illegal immigrant should get the electric chair. She was still s young. Thumbs up!

      I am always saddened and sickened with stories of such tragedies. They have become far-too-frequent-topics in the headlines. It IS a National disgrace.

      I am one who continually remind people I am with in a public place, to be discreet and low-key with discussions. There is really no need to speak loudly enough for others to clearly hear you! I can imagine how badly you felt, but you did not mean any harm.

      lord de cross, Thanks for stopping by. Your right there are so many dangers for kids now days. I see children I know constantly on their phones, computer, texting, facebook you name it and it worries me. You really don't know who their talking to. Thank you for the vote.

      When you see people on their cell phones talking loud about everything and anything I often think of that incident we had. How do they know who's listen and they may be talking about someone they shouldn't be talking about. We’re not loud people and look what happened.

      I’m sure waitresses hear everything. Thank you tipozque, for stopping by.

      That is such a terrible tragity. It is embarrassing and awful to be overheard like that, as a waitress I have seen simular incidences like that. Gratefully they found her killer.

      What a sad thing to happen practically to a child. I always thing of young people as older children. I was a police officer , and I never got use to people getting hurt. You were all just having innocent family conversation. God Bless You.

      Yes it's a very sad story and I can imagine how hurt the father was but because you didn't mean any harm I think perhaps I would have jumped up and hugged that man and told him how bad I feel for him and his family. Don't know if that would have helped or made the situation more awkward. That restaurant must want to pack in as many people as possible but if quarters are so close I hate to imagine if one wanted to talk about something very personal they'd definetly would have to go elsewhere.

      writer20, Thanks for stopping by. I think the people may have told them to be put in a more private room and that's how they ended up by us. When they came in we had to move around to let them through. It was just to bad it happened.

      We do talk about things without thinking of who could be listening. We weren't talking loud and we had been alone in room until this family came in. It was a back room set off from the rest of the restaurant and they had put us there because of our bigger family. I'm sure we weren't the only ones in the restaurant talking about what had happen. We sure weren't expecting the family to be there, of course, they had every right to be there.

      Thanks diogenes, for stopping by.

      Yes: And we do often talk indiscriminately and we never know who may be listening. But that was a real coincidence and maybe he wasn't really the dad.

      Good to keep this subject uppermost in people's minds...Bob
