EL PASO, Texas - The El Paso County Sheriff's Office said Saturday it had arrested a man who allegedly made death threats against a judge and the suspected shooter in the Walmart massacre.

According to deputies, 38-year-old Jose Humberto Martinez called the courthouse and threatened to kill the presiding district court judge if mass shooting suspect Patrick Crusius is not sentenced to the death penalty.

Authorities said Martinez also allegedly threatened to kill Crusius.

Martinez was charged Friday with making a terroristic threat, a third degree felony.

He remained behind bars Saturday in the El Paso County Detention Facility on $75,000 bond.

  1. The fruitcake must be related to alberta/420lonesome. Only an inbred doper would do something that stupid. Lock him and his boyfriend alberta/420lonesome in the same cell as crusius and let God sort it out.

  2. Thank you KVIA, your report is concise and on point.

    “The El Paso Times” described the E.P. Shooter as a “white man.” Wtf?

    Would they describe a black perp as a “black man?” Or a Hispanic perp as “brown man?”

    Oh, and Alberto is a menace to society.

  3. JOSE MARTINEZ IS THE 1st to speak up and speak his mind!!!! No one likes the August 3rd maggot and anyone who agrees with his cowardly actions. Might have done it the incorrect way but his message is in line with ALL EL PASOANS!!! EXCEPT GEE DUBB AND JAMESBEN. They agree with the white maggot.

  4. Jamesben, nadodave, and gee dubb are the local colonel sanders whores. They sell themselves at the Devil’s Triangle everyday between 6-12. A few others come out once in a while . Look out for dancing madmike and his local marshmallows.

  5. The troll Alberto aka fero2amadmikegeedubb and Daniel Flores posting 24/7 like good trolls they are. Two totally psycho morons. Insomnia much Alberto? Sad pitiful life. LMAO.
