Skip to comments.Well-known Douglas-area rancher is found slain (possibly related to illegal immigrants)

A longtime rancher was killed on his Douglas-area property over the weekend, and neighbors worried that his homicide was connected to increasing border-related crime in the area.
The Cochise County Sheriff's Office offered little information into the late-Saturday shooting death of 58-year-old Robert Krentz, whose family began the Krentz Ranch more than 100 years ago.
Krentz's body was found on his land, which is about 35 miles northeast of Douglas, just before midnight Saturday, said Carol Capas, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff's Office.
The Sheriff's Office, aided by the U.S. Border Patrol, had no suspects Sunday and continued to follow leads, Capas said. She declined to comment on reports from neighbors and border activists that Krentz's death was related to smuggling in the area.
Area residents said Krentz had no enemies, and they could think of no motive for his death other than the possibility it was related to what they called the growing level of crime in the area related to illegal immigrants and drug smugglers.

Amnesty will fix this.
more of the same...
Too bad did not have a position on illegal immigration. J.D. certainly does. Who will voters choose; despite McCain support team?
corr w/missing piece/:
This is the redistribution of land ownership in the South African Model. Our Dear Leader will demand that the ranch be distributed for reparations to the illegals. Of course that’s after he gets his inheritance tax cut.
This is not getting covered in MSM, haven’t seen on FOX either.
Did the system work, Janet “Bull-dyke” Napalitano?
“Amnesty will fix this./sarc”
I’m sure someone will be along to actually say such a stupid thing. Curious, isn’t it.....Johnny Sutton assured us that NO illegal aliens, NOT even smugglers ever carry guns!!!
I haven’t heard a word uttered by the TV news about this murder, have you?? If some rancher had deployed some property rights justice against an alien, we’d all know about it by now.
“This is the redistribution of land ownership in the South African Model. Our Dear Leader will demand that the ranch be distributed for reparations to the illegals. Of course thats after he gets his inheritance tax cut.”
Yep, so much for ‘property rights’...not to mention the right to life. I keep thinking of Isreal and how the O administration keeps telling them they should turn their land over to the “Palestinians”. It isn’t a stretch of the imagination to think they would side will illegal aliens over U.S. citizens.
Pray for the family. He was very well-known down here as a gentle soul.
