An illegal alien is accused of killing 24-year-old Sheriff’s Deputy Alexis Hein-Nutz in Weld County, Colorado, just one week before her 25th birthday.
Norberto Garcia-Gonzales, a 36-year-old illegal alien, was arrested this week for allegedly causing a hit-and-run crash that killed Hein-Nutz on September 18 while she was on her way to work.
According to Weld County investigators, Hein-Nutz was riding her motorcycle on her way to work when a drunk Garcia-Gonzales stuck her motorcycle — killing her in the process. Hein-Nutz was just one week away from her 25th birthday and had joined the Weld County Sheriff’s Office as a detentions deputy at the county jail in 2018.
“After many years of dreaming of being in law enforcement, I can finally say I am officially following my dreams,” Hein-Nutz wrote in a Facebook post in 2018 when she was first hired by the sheriff’s office. “This is only the first stepping-stone to a brighter future. Here is to a better life and doing what I was meant to do.”
Investigators allege that Garcia-Gonzales tried to flee the crash by running into a nearby cornfield as empty beer bottles were found in his vehicle. Garcia-Gonzales was arrested on Tuesday and charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving death as well as reckless driving resulting in the death of a person.
KFYR TV reports that Garcia-Gonzales had a fake green card along with a fake Social Security card that he likely used to fraudulently gain employment in Colorado.
Garcia-Gonzales remains in Weld County Sheriff’s Office custody.
