New Arrest Made In 2009 Slaying Of Teen In Oxnard

Posted on Thursday, June 16, 2011 7:30am


Oxnard police say they’ve made a third arrest for the June, 2009 murder of a teenage boy.  Joseph Jacquez was shot to death as he was walking in the area of Roosevelt, and First Streets in what investigators say was retaliation for an attack the night before on a gang member, and his girlfriend in Ventura. 

Police had already arrested Pablo Cruz and Victor Montejano for the shooting death, but detectives say after hundreds of additional hours of investigation, they arrested Juan “Johnny” Prado this week.  Prado was already in custody on some unrelated weapons charges when he was arrested for the slaying.
