Overview
Today’s lecture is 22 minutes long. This is a really interesting one. It’s about a gay cop who killed his lover. The time was 2004.

Cops in general do not make good killers, despite their forensic knowledge. Almost like they want to get caught.

Did the killer know the victim? Yes.

Details
University of Missouri was a nearby school. The area only saw 80-90 murders in the last 25 years. These events occured in June 2004.

A body was found between two apartments. There was a knife wound on the throat. There was alot of blood there. The body was wearing only shorts.

Jesse Valencia was a prelaw student. He worked as a clerk at a hotel. No sign of foul play or struggle. No defensive wounds. Used condoms were found in his apartment.

*Once the vic is IDed, you always start with victimology.***

They looked up Jesse’s cell phone records. They find some guy, who Jesse was screwing. Jess was gay.

Steven Rios was a 3 year veteran. He had a family. Rios cooked up an alibi. Said he was in bed with his wife at the time of the crime. The police needed more.

The PPCT shoulder pin restraint system. It’s a headlock with the right arm and head together. Right arm through, Hold right arms with left hand. Jesse had marks consistant with the PPCT used incorrectly.

I got a good look at the police training file:

When hair contains the root, it has DNA evidence. The cops found 3 hairs from the chokehold wounds. They did PCR and matched it to Rios.

Rios and the vic met during a loud party. Rios cited the vic and detectives found out by checking the records.

Rios was convicted to 1st degree murder and got life in prison.

Important Names

  1. “Cops in general do not make good killers, despite their forensic knowledge. Almost like they want to get caught.”

    How can you know that? The ones who do it successfully get away with it and so there’s no data to draw upon to make a judgement. The only data we have concerns the cops who got caught, which is only useful for gauging the competency of those who failed, nothing more.

    • I’ve studied them. That’s how I know.

      There are rumors of course. Some say the best hitmen in NYC pre-1980s were pigs. They would be the ideal person to make a hit.

      In Mexico and many other 3rd world countries, this is still true. Sometimes they’ll parole a real killer and let him do the job. American cops tend to wear a big white hat and believe in their Murkan dream crap.

      The intellectual horsepower necessary to get away with it is not in most police. It takes a very special person indeed. The data is out there, if you ask the right questions. You will not find this in the UCR.
