Des Moines, November 24th, 2004 - On Thursday, August 26th, a quiet Urbandale Neighborhood changed forever. The bodies of Terry and Lisa Dilks were wheeled out of the home they were renting; both, shot and killed, victims of murder. Who killed them, and why?

Police didn't say much at the time, but we now know the investigators in the case didn't start from scratch when they went looking for the killers of Terry and Lisa Dilks. Sources close to the investigation tell Channel 13 the Dilks were cooperating with police in a drug investigation. Neither had recent arrest records, but in July 2003, police executed a search warrant at the Dilks home in Urbandale. The contents of that warrant are sealed. We do not know what police were looking for or what they found. The Dilks were likely targeted. Sources believe the murderer likely killed the Dilks because they were helping police in a drug investigation Who killed them? Shortly after the bodies were discovered, police started looking for two men. Authorities caught up with one of them, Audiel Molasco-Tello, days after the killings. Urbandale police say he was uncooperative when questioned. Molasco-Tello is now in the custody of US Marshalls. He's charged with immigration violations. Authorities say the other man, Raymundo Cruz-Gomez, has a drug history. Before the murders, Des Moines police issued an arrest warrant for Cruz-Gomez for drug violations. Police do not know where he is, but they do still want to talk to him. Sources say Cruz-Gomez is the most likely suspect in the Dilks murder. He's been called a "very dangerous person". It has been three months since Terry and Lisa Dilks died. While police might know why they were killed, exactly what happened inside their Urbandale could remain a mystery.

I live in dodge city, ks. mostly hispanics here. the culture has changed. they are 70 percent of the population. How odd that the county says 70 percent of the population is in poverty and our taxes are the second highest in the state. The whites simply cannot afford to live here, I say lets just let them have it. I am moving out of this dump next month and going back to where white and english speaking people are the 99 percent majority

Hispanic fact of the day:

'97 Lex murder involved illegal papers

By HARRY G. PERKINS
Hub Regional Correspondent

LEXINGTON - A suspect in a 6-year-old murder case has been bound over to Dawson County District Court for trial.

Samuel Arevalo-Martinez, 45, accused of murder in the death of Antonio Zavala-Ruiz in 1997, was bound over Thursday. Investigators believe a dispute about false identification documents was the motive for the murder.

Arevalo-Martinez faces Class I and IA felony charges of first-degree murder. Dawson County Attorney Elizabeth Waterman said if Arevalo-Martinez is convicted, the jury will decide if he is to be sentenced to death, the penalty for the Class I felony, or to life imprisonment, the lesser Class IA felony.

One of the requirements for the death penalty is premeditation. Waterman contends that because Arevalo-Martinez is alleged to have kidnapped Zavala-Ruiz, the requirement of premeditation is satisfied.

Lexington Police Department Investigator Kenneth Schumacher testified Thursday that people who knew Zavala-Ruiz said he was selling false identification documents, including birth certificates and Social Security cards.

He said investigators think hard feelings developed between Zavala-Ruiz and Arevalo-Martinez when documents purchased by Arevalo-Martinez for his wife were unsatisfactory. Schumacher was told the defendant wanted his money back, which was reported to be $500 to $600.

Schumacher said he was called to an irrigation ditch at the southwest edge of Lexington at about 7 p.m. Oct. 30, 1997.

Teenagers walking along the ditch found Zavala-Ruiz's body lying face down in water in the ditch, Schumacher said. The victim was killed with a shotgun blast to the left side of his head. Zavala-Ruiz had been reported as a kidnapping victim Oct. 11,1997.

The investigation of the kidnapping implicated Arevalo-Martinez, Schumacher said.

Schumacher said a van containing three men pulled alongside Zavala-Ruiz on a Lexington residential street. A witness told police one man holding a long gun forced Zavala-Ruiz into the van.

An arrest warrant for Arevalo-Martinez was issued April 27, 1998, and a second warrant was issued on Nov. 5, 1998, for Manuel Flores-Mares. A third man, Manuel Salazar-Hernandez, was sought for questioning in 2000.

Arevalo-Martinez has been in the Dawson County Jail since being arrested in Kansas City, Mo., last month. He was arraigned Feb. 19 and is being held without bond.

No evidence was introduced Thursday indicating that the murder weapon was never found.

Arevalo-Martinez showed no emotion as he listened to an interpreter as the prosecution made its case before County Judge Carlton Clark. Five members of Arevalo-Martinez's family came from Mexico for the hearing.

The Dawson County Sheriff's Department and investigators from the Nebraska State Patrol's criminal investigation unit also were involved in the investigation.

" The commissions also approved a $1.6 million contract with the Denver-based architectural firm Sink Combs Dethlefs for the events center. Additionally, the commissions authorized the city to issue about $44 million in bonds for the project.
Those bonds will be backed by proceeds from the "Why Not Dodge" sales tax, not by property tax revenues."

This cacacabeza blames the Mexicans.

The person from Dodge City lonely stated that taxes were increasing. They didn't state property taxes. An increase in sales tax is an increase in taxes! The problems of Dogde City are most likely casue by illegal Mexicans not Mexicans. Mindless white liberals and illegal alien supporters can't seem to find the word "illegal" unless they refer to the past president's actions.

I'm an American and my ancestors came from Germany, Holland, The Isle of Man, and right here.(1/32 of me is Cherokee) Actually, Mexicans are for the most part of Spanish, African, and Native American descent. They are not native to this land either. It makes little difference what your ancestry is. What matters is; were you born here or have you gone through the proper channels to be a citizen of this country? If not, you are here illegally, period.

You can thank the big commercial agriculture industry in KS for the huge surge in minority populations over the past few decades. When they relocated the feedlots, packing plants, and slaughterhouses out of the big cities- it went to the Great Plains. There, employers knew that they could get the cheapest labor possible without a unionized workforce. Employment grew and they sought to seek more workers any way they could. The water table will not hold out much longer out in SW Kansas anyway. Profligate irrigation of Midwest style crops in a semi-arid climatic environment is in no way sustainable. Expect mostly dryland farming to return or ghost towns.
