An Arizona rancher who has been charged with second-degree murder in the killing of an illegal immigrant on his property told a 911 dispatcher not to send an ambulance to the scene.
The New York Post obtained and published the call and an additional conversation between a U.S. Border Patrol agent and a dispatcher with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office.
The calls were both made in relation to the Jan. 30 death of Mexican national Gabriel Cuen-Buitimea, 48, on the ranch of George Kelly, 74.
Kelly was initially charged with first-degree murder in Cuen-Buitimaa’s death, but the charge was later downgraded to second-degree murder. He was released from jail after posting a $1 million bond.
