Federal Bureau of Investigation searches San Diego for man suspected of wife's brutal murder

Jesus Roberto Munguia

A reputed gang member with Southern California ties, who's accused of murdering his wife in Las Vegas, is the newest addition to the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted Fugitives" list and may be hiding out in the border region near San Diego, the agency announced Tuesday. At some point, he beat her to death with a "blunt object, possibly the handle of a tire jack". She says no child and no family deserves what their father put them through. At the time of the murder, Munguia, a USA citizen, was a documented "TEPA 13" gang member with familial ties in California and Mexico.

According to FBI Special Agent Andrew Attridge, Munguia locked the children in a back bedroom while he kidnapped Sacueza, forcing her into her auto and driving her away to a remote location. He then bound her hands with seatbelts and used jumper cables to tie her neck to the seat's head rest.

Just after noon the next day, Sacueza's body was discovered by her sister in the back seat of her vehicle, which was parked in the driveway of the home.

"Munguia has been charged with a violent and brutal murder and kidnapping charge which took a young mother from her 4 children and family", said Aaron C. Rouse, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Las Vegas Field Office. The victim's sister found the beaten and bound body in the auto.

He has multiple tattoos all over his body including a teardrop on his face, near his left eye, the letters "PA" on the back of his neck and the words "My Baby Jessica" on his chest - the name of his oldest daughter. He's also missing his right index finger.

Federal Bureau of Investigation public affairs agent Mollie Halpern said Munguia uses aliases including Mono, Chuy, and Miguel.

Munguia was charged in Nevada with kidnap and murder with a deadly weapon on July 3, 2008. The agency is offering $100,000 for information leading to Munguia's arrest.
