FORT COLLINS, CO - On Monday, police arrested Octavio Gonzalez-Garcia, who reportedly killed a Weld County Sheriff’s deputy a day earlier in a hit-and-run crash near the intersection of AA Street and Weld County Road 37.
The victim, 24-year-old Deputy Alexis Hein-Nutz, had been with the sheriff’s office since 2018.
Crash scene investigators determined that Gonzalez-Garcia ran through a stop sign causing the collision. Hein-Nutz hit the front passenger side of Gonzalez-Garcia's Ford van, causing her motorcycle to become engulfed in flames.
Deputy Hein-Nutz was pronounced dead at the scene.
In a news release, Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams gave more details on the senseless tragedy:
Gonzalez-Garcia is 37 or 38 years old and residing in this country illegally, as evidenced by a falsified Green Card and a fake Social Security Card recovered from his vehicle. Evidence collected last night shows Gonzalez-Garcia was intoxicated at the time of the crash.
Alexis was riding her motorcycle to work when the crash occurred. Gonzalez-Garcia made no attempt to provide Alexis aid despite her obvious injuries. Instead, he ran away like a coward and hid in a nearby cornfield.
Deputy Hein-Nutz, was a native of Bismarck, North Dakota, and was one week away from her 25th birthday when she was killed.
Of course, Colorado has a statewide ‘sanctuary’ policy in place to protect criminal aliens from possible deportation.
