Head Of Minuteman Group Arrested For Double Homicide

Posted by | June 13, 2009 15:30 | Filed under: Top Stories

One of three people arrested in connection with a double homicide in Arivaca, AZ, is the National Executive Director of the Minuteman American Defense Group. Jason Eugene Bush, Albert Robert Gaxioila, and Shawna Forde, the woman who heads the minuteman group, are charged with two counts of First Degree Murder, one count of First Degree Burglary, and one count of Aggravated Assault.  Raul Flores and his 9-year-old daughter  Brisenia were killed in the assault.

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik says, “Jason Bush was in fact the shooter of all three of these people under orders from Ms. Forde.”


Dupnik says, “The husband who was murdered has a history in being involved in narcotics and there was an anticipation that there would be a considerable amount of cash at this location, as well as the possibility of drugs.”


Sheriff Dupnik adds, “To just kill a 9-year old girl because she could be a potential witness, to me, is one of the most despicable acts I have ever heard of.”


Forde’s group is not directly connected to the Minuteman Project run by Chris Simcox and James Gilchrist, and no minuteman group is, itself, being charged.
