Three Aurora men have been charged with the brutal murder of a young woman.


18-year-old Juan Garnica Junior, 19-year-old Enrique Prado and 20-year-old Jose Becerra are accused in the death of 18-year-old Abigail Villalpando of Aurora, according to police.

Villalpando’s body was found burned beyond recognition in a wooded area in Montgomery Saturday morning. Police say she was beaten with a hammer and died from blunt force trauma to the head.  She was identified using dental records, police said.

According to the medical examiner, Villalpando died from blunt force trauma.  Detectives have not yet established a definitive motive.

There were no homicides recorded  in Aurora in 2012, which is the second biggest city in Illinois after Chicago.

Bond will be set tomorrow in Kane County Court for the three men.

    Worthless pieces of sh*t! Actually a piece of sh*t is worth more than these 3 [words fail me – fill in with whatever word you see fit] combined together. Break every bone in their body with a hammer and leave them to die. Such a waste of taxpayer's money. Maybe we really CAN learn a thing or two from countries with modern-day medieval practices.

      so sad to hear about this heart breaking news, losing a young life to these "demons"….my condolence to aby's family and friends

        Except one of the first things our governor did when he came to office was get rid of the death penalty. So these 'demons' will sit in jail for the next 65+ years…

    Why did it take all three of them to kill a yong lady? Maybe she wouldn't compy to their wishes. They sh ould not even receive a bond. Set them afire. Make them suffer.

    sadden and sick knowing these animals will still live in comfort rotting away in jail. while the families are torn apart by this crime. bring back the death penalty. not lethal injection either let the family have there justice…


    Immediate death penalty for the main guy and accomplices. I do not understand how people can do this. Maybe thats because we are normal? If Illinois wants violence to go down, people like this need to be made an example of. Sad part is they will not get the death penalty and it's going to cost us, Mr. TaxPayer, to keep them warm, fed, and clothed until they die in prison. Hopefully some prisoner will do the job that our courts will not!
