Crimes: Assault, Robbery, Murder

Hell hath no fury like Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo scorned. Her ex-boyfriend, Victor Hugo Sanchez, found that out the hard way. He found out that she was a hellbeast hell bent on destroying his life, and her wrath would ultimately kill him.

Victor Sanchez, a construction worker from Paso Robles, California, met Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo through the youth soccer league that he had helped launch. He coached her sons, and then got into a relationship with the woman. Eventually they moved in together, and spent a decade as a couple. In 2012 they split up.

Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo wasn’t content to let him go. She became jealous and obsessed, and kept track of his movements. She recruited her friends to keep tabs on the poor guy. She would turn up places where he was, unexpected and uninvited.

Victor Sanchez must have been increasingly alarmed as time went by. Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo just wasn’t leaving him alone. Even though she was the one stalking him, she obtained protective orders against him by accusing him of abusing her “emotionally and sexually”.

Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo tried suing Victor Sachez, claiming he owed her money. She didn’t win, but he did — he was awarded over $7,000 in a countersuit.

Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo wasn’t satisfied with her efforts to mess with Victor Sanchez. She wanted to do him harm — real, lasting, physical harm. Toward that end, the hellbitch began to recruit others to help her hurt her ex.

In October 2012, Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo paid her former brother-in-law, David Hernandez, to attack Victor Sanchez. David Hernandez involved his wife, Christine Garner, her sister, Crystal Garner, and Crystal’s boyfriend, Joseph Villarreal Jr., in the evil plot.

I really have to shake my head at that. Not one of those f*cktards was decent or moral enough to refuse to participate. Not one of them called the intended victim or the police to expose the plot to do serious harm to an innocent man. All of them were content to brutalize Victor Sanchez and get paid for it. Disgusting assholes, all of them.

On October 6, 2012 poor, unsuspecting Victor Sanchez was texted by Crystal Garner. She told him she wanted to hook up. He called her because he didn’t recognize her number, and she told him they’d met previously at a bar.

She invited him to join her at Pappy McGregor’s Bar & Grill in San Luis Obispo. He went and when he met her he didn’t recognize her. That didn’t seem to matter. After a few drinks, Crystal Garner suggested that they should go somewhere to have sex. He agreed and so she drove him down Booker Road in Templeton and pulled over to the side of the road.

Victor Sanchez must’ve thought it was his lucky day. He wasn’t to know that the whole thing was a trap, and that there was a band of miscreants in the car behind them.

Victor Sanchez was beaten badly with a tire iron. Joseph Villarreal Jr. administered the beating. The victim’s arm and nose were broken and he was cut in several places. He was also robbed.

It could have been worse but nearby residents heard the commotion and interrupted the attack.

Victor Sanchez suspected Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo was behind the attack, but he had no proof. He did report the crime to the Sheriff’s Office and gave them all the details he could.

You’d think that Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo would be satisfied. Her ex was hurt, and he was now frightened. The poor guy didn’t go out alone, and he avoided dark places. I can believe he had panic attacks and nightmares too.

Tragically, Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo was not satisfied. She wanted her ex-boyfriend hurt worse than some broken bones. She wanted him disabled for life!

The sadistic hellbitch met up with David Hernandez and Christine Garner two days later to express her disappointment at the damage done to Victor Sanchez. They set about planning a second, more devastating attack.

This new plot involved the participation of 3 teenagers – Edgar Ontiveros, Louis Madrigal and Alejandro Anguiano of Modesto. In February 2013 Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo paid these young assholes to kidnap Victor Sanchez and shoot him in both kneecaps.

On February 23, 2013, the teenaged trio of f*ckwads set about with their plan to kidnap and kneecap Victor Sanchez. It didn’t go well, not well at all. Outside of his Spring Street apartment complex, Victor Sanchez was grabbed, but he refused to get into the kidnappers’ car. Frustrated, one of the teenagers (likely Edgar Ontiveros) shot the poor guy numerous times in the head and chest.

The killers took off, and neighbours comforted the mortally wounded man as he lay dying. Victor Sanchez, 37, didn’t survive long. He died before emergency personnel could arrive.

The vengeful hellbitch, Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo, had spent $12,000 hiring goons to attack Victor Sanchez twice. She really wanted him murdered, and had offered $25,000 for that, but David Hernandez and Christine Garner weren’t agreeable. With Victor Sanchez dead, Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo got a real deal.

The police investigating the murder listened to the victim’s niece. She told them that her uncle’s life had been threatened before. Investigators were soon able to link the original assault and robbery to the murder.

Unfortunately for the October 6, 2012 assailants, investigators had the police report filed by the victim. They also recovered bar room surveillance video that showed Victor Sanchez meeting up with Crystal Lynn Garner, 26.

The investigators followed the trail to Joseph Villerreal Jr., 24, Christine Lee Garner, 26, David Rodriguez Hernandez, 37. From there they were led to the mastermind, Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo, 49.

On April 24, 2013, police announced they had 4 of the 5 suspects in custody. Crystal Lynn Garner and Joseph Villarreal Jr. were already in prison on unrelated charges. Christine Lee Garner was arrested in Mexico and extradited. She was booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail on April 28, 2013. Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo was arrested in Fayetteville, Georgia and was extradited back to California.

David Rodriguez Hernandez had eluded arrest and was believed to be hiding in Mexico.

Maybe it was because her husband had absconded, leaving her alone to face the music, or maybe it was because she was scared spitless at being tried for murder, but Christine Garner decided to talk to the investigators and make a plea deal.

Christine Garner explained to the investigators how her husband had met with teenagers Edgar Ontiveros, Louis Henry Madrigal and Alejandro Anguiano to discuss the kidnapping and kneecapping that was to take place. She told how Edgar Ontiveros got the guns, and David Hernandez rented a motel room for the little bastards. After the killing, Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo paid David Hernandez $8,000. Of that money, the killer was given $2,000 in cash.

Edgar Ontiveros, aka “Huero”, Louis Madrigal, aka “Cuates” or “Flaco”, and Alejandro Anguiano, aka “Barbujas”, took off after the murder and have still eluded capture. Ontiveros is described as Hispanic, 5′ 8” and 140 lbs. Anguiano is Hispanic, 5′ 8” and around 150 lbs. Madrigal is also Hispanic, around 5′ 5” and weighs around 140 lbs. If anyone sees these nasty little bastards, please contact the police.

Christine Lee Garner pled no contest in San Luis Obispo Superior Court in July 2013, to robbery, conspiracy and accessory after the fact. She was sentenced to 8 years in prison. In return for her plea deal she testified against Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo.

Crystal Garner pled no contest to conspiracy to commit robbery and battery with great bodily injury. She received a sentence of 4 years in prison. Her boyfriend, Joseph Villarreal Jr., was sentenced to 6 years in prison.

Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo pled not guilty to all charges. After a month-long trial and 3 days of deliberation the jury reached its decision.

Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo was found guilty in December 2014 of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, and 2nd-degree murder of Victor Hugo Sanchez. Superior Court Judge Michael Duffy said the evidence against her was “overwhelming”.

In January 2015 Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo was sentenced to 6 years for the robbery and assault with a deadly weapon convictions, and 15 years-to-life for the 2nd-degree murder conviction.

RIP, Victor Hugo Sanchez. I extend my heartfelt sympathies to his friends and family, and hope they find some solace in the prison term that Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo will serve.

I hope that the remaining suspects will be captured soon to face justice. More than that, I hope they won’t be responsible for more deaths.

Ontiveros, Anguiano and Madrigal

With luck, maybe Crystal and Christine Garner will get their lives on track when they’re released, and do no more harm to anyone. Likewise with Joseph Villarreal Jr. Maybe prison will reform them all. I doubt it, but they may prove me wrong.

To Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo I wish a life of misery. Because she just couldn’t get over the breakup of her relationship, her sons now have a mother who has been convicted of murdering the man who helped raise them, and who will be incarcerated for many years. I feel bad for her family, because none of this needed to happen.

Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo can protest her innocence for the rest of her life, but with $12,000 she put a murder into motion all because she was scorned.

      Heads up, people. Don’t expect a new article until Friday please. Cleo has medical appointments that will take up time usually spent writing. I shall do my best to get something new up soon. But don’t panic — I’ve got over 500 articles on the site for your reading pleasure.

    I have to wonder where this hellbitch got her $$$ from to pay the shitbags to commit the heinous act? I also think that the old battleaxe should’ve been sentenced to life no parole or a stint in bengal’s basement, i’d show her what vindictive really means. All those other lowlife cunt’s should have that on their consciences for life, thats if they have a conscience.

    The most sickening part of this story to me isn’t that some old embittered washed up hag decided to kill her ex to punish for him leaving. That’s bad, coming from a sociopath predictable, but bad. However the real shocker in this is that a whole group of people went along with this nutcase, not once but twice. And for a total of only $12,000.00. Which with seven people involved (even though the teens killed him the others knew/helped arrange it) isn’t even $1,800.00 apiece to go along with stalking, kidnapping, assault, torture,attempted murder, murder and a whole long laundry list of other much more trivial crimes committed during the course of both arranging and carrying out those greater felonies. And that, sadly is exactly how precious little mine and the life of everyone reading this post today is worth in the world anymore no thanks to hellbeasts like these. This is precisely why I am pro gun. If he’d have been armed maybe he’d still be alive today and his wicked witch psycho stalker killer ex and some, or even better all of her paid attackers, would be dead instead. I feel very bad for his family. These losers hunted and stalked their loved one like prey. Not a one had the guts to attempt to try and take him unarmed, man to man, one on one. No they had to sneak up on him, take him unarmed and by surprise rat pack him because that’s just what kind of vile, weak, insipid, gutless wonder, spineless, little coward punks they all are. I hope they are all caught and seriously messed up real bad while they are in prison. In a just world they’d have “coward punk murderer” branded on their faces to wear and show the world for the rest of their natural lives.
