Caitlynne Infinger Guajardo
In August 2019, 20-year-old Caitlynne Infinger Guajardo was killed due to law enforcement negligence in Harris County, Texas.
It is reported that Guajardo’s husband was released on personal recognizance of the judge. A month before Caitlynne’s murder, he was charged with assaulting his wife. After being released, he stabbed his pregnant wife 20 times. It is reported that the reason for the attack on Caitlynne was her intention to divorce her husband.
In August 2021, the Guajardo family sued the county and the police department and said that Caitlynne’s husband should not have been released. A trial on the murder will take place in September 2022.
MASS MEDIA ABOUT THE CASE:
“I just remember the anger I felt after finding out that he wasn’t on a bond and someone let him out, that the very people who promised to protect my daughter and promised to protect the public, that they basically slapped him on the wrist and let him out to kill my daughter and her unborn child,” Caitlynne’s mother, Melanie Infinger said.
“I knew that my daughter’s death was preventable,” Caitlynne’s mother, Melanie Infinger said.
The initiative group has requested the clarification from US President Joseph Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland. The initiative group believes it is important to fight against law enforcement negligence and, if necessary, will provide legal and financial assistance to the family of the victim.
