Five arrested in fatal ambush of a drug cartel member in Webster County

Court documents say five people set a man up to be ambushed and killed early Monday morning in rural Webster County.

The suspects allegedly armed themselves, settled into hiding places, waited for their target to arrive and then pounced.

So much planning went into the scheme, according to the sheriff, that the group scouted locations and even met up the day before to practice.

It was probably right to be cautious.

The victim, according to authorities, was a player in a drug cartel that was bringing meth from New Mexico up to the Springfield area for distribution.

Four southwest Missouri residents were charged with murder Tuesday morning after they allegedly orchestrated the killing of 24-year-old Oscar Martinez outside of a home south of Fordland. Martinez was allegedly coming to collect a $40,000 debt owed to a drug cartel.

Brooke Beckley, 19, Anthony Donovan, 19, Nathaniel Lee, 18, and Joshua Applegate, 17, were charged with first-degree murder after authorities say they killed Martinez and fled the scene before being tracked down by law enforcement hours later.


Yovanny Aroldo
A representative with the Webster County Sheriff's Office confirmed Wednesday morning that a fifth suspect in the case — 21-year-old Yovanny Aroldo — was arrested Tuesday night in Lawrence County.

Webster County Prosecutor Benjamin Berkstresser said Tuesday afternoon he anticipates the fifth suspect — later identified as Aroldo — will also be charged with first-degree murder.

"I believe he was part of the planning committee to set up this ambush murder," Berkstresser said.

Anthony E. Donovan
Authorities say Aroldo led law enforcement on a lengthy car chase Monday before fleeing on foot in Lawrence County.

The probable cause statement used to charge four suspects on Tuesday describes how and why they allegedly plotted the killing.

According to the statement, Beckley met with Donovan last week at the Econo Lodge hotel on North Glenstone Avenue in Springfield and told Donovan she owed about $40,000 to a drug organization based in New Mexico that was operating in Springfield.

Nathaniel A. Lee
Beckley said she could not pay the debt, but two men from the organization were on their way to southwest Missouri to collect, the statement says.

Beckley allegedly told Donovan she had found a way to buy herself some time in repaying the debt. She said she had worked out an agreement that if she killed one of the New Mexican men that were coming to southwest Missouri — Martinez — then she would get more time to pay the debt and possibly get the debt lowered, according to the statement.

Donovan and two other men, Applegate and Lee, agreed to help Beckley kill Martinez, according to the statement. In exchange, Beckley allegedly agreed to pay Donovan $6,000.

Joshua H. Applegate
The statement says a meeting was set up between Beckley and the men from New Mexico at Lee's residence on Hackberry Lane south of Fordland at 12:30 a.m. Monday.

When Martinez arrived at the Webster County residence and stepped out of his vehicle, Donovan, Lee and Applegate opened fire, according to the statement.

The suspects then covered Martinez with tin siding and fled the scene before deputies with the Webster County Sheriff's Office arrived, the statement says.

The statement says Martinez died at the scene.

Webster County Sheriff Roye Cole said the suspects carefully planned out the killing, and even practiced the day before.

Cole said it was a neighbor who called 911 after hearing the shots.

On Tuesday afternoon, Cole said authorities had obtained search warrants for Aroldo's phone, and they were trying to glean information that way.

Cole said several agencies are assisting in the investigation including the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office, the Greene County Sheriff's Office, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office and the Missouri State Highway Patrol.


Cole said he might ask the U.S. Marshals Service to assist in finding Aroldo.

Berkstresser, the prosecutor, said he is aware that people from the southwestern part of the country have been selling meth in Webster County, but this is his office's first direct contact with individuals who identify with the cartels in Mexico and New Mexico.

Authorities said the fifth suspect — eventually identified as Aroldo — likely came to southwest Missouri from New Mexico with Martinez to carry out cartel business.

  5. Good post Tex, and timely. Goes to show that murders are also comitted by whitey, and to assume, as in ohio, that cartels do all the killing is foolish.
    The cartels seem to me to be much more precise and "clean" in their business, at least north of the border..
    Kids, please stay away from that s__t.

    3. I couldn't agree more. More than likely she had half of the payment, which she would use to expend for the hit. This story has a very sad ending as she's not the one in danger, but her family. There's nothing she can do to help them from the inside, and I doubt very seriously that the authorities are equipped with the manpower to be effective.

    4. 10:01 they owed for the drugs, the middle man got the drugs for maybe 4 000.00, also, people get "invited to party" and All of them vet charged for the party, not their share, but the whole party, individually, I have seen the operation in action, these "operators" need to be put out of business ASAP.

    5. @9:12 Cartels are not stupid, no one wants to go to jail for a long time, especially over a measly 40K. The Cartels will not put a hit on the innocent family that lives in the U.S.
      Ohio was a one off. And if you do not think that LE (Law Enforcment) will not retaliate, you are dead wrong. Stop watching Narcos on Netflix.

  14. Wow, that's some redneck ingenuity for you. You owe a $40k debt, instead of paying up you kill the cartel collectors and in your mind that will give you more time to pay the debt. After the murder you believe you are home free and you can continue with your po white trailer trash lifestyle. Can I get a Yeehaaw!!!! These Midwest tweekers can't dance with the devil and expect to not pay your bill.

  23. What is all the fuss about? Besides these kids will not make good killers (that do not get caught)? Main problem to many involved and left alive. Really there is a much longer list of stuff done wrong when working inside US. And ripping off cartel you must kill all cartel involved. Would be like hitting a stash house and leaving someone breathing. Sloppy work, $40k not worth a life sentence. And we all know 1 collector's life is not worth a peso.

  26. There seems to be some sympathy and understanding for these kids amongst some in the comments section. I wonder how the reaction of the same people would be if the murderers were Black kids instead of White kids.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The reaction would be totally different 6:19. Since the arrestees are white the concensus is "oh it was a mistake" or "they were doing us a favor by killing this scum". If the arrestees were black the same commenter's tune would be completely different. This kind of mentality amongst a certain racial demographics is the reason why Donald Chump is so popular. Hopefully this trailer trash receives nothing less than a life sentence but we all know that won't happen. They will be portrayed as misguided youth instead of hardcore killers. The victim will be portrayed as a "murderer" who came to collect or kill the female. The eyebrow plucker will probably get the most time since he sold out his Homie.

I guess this debt collector didn't know guidelines in the tweeker rule book. And which organization would be dumb enough to give some little girl $40k of product? Freaking rookies.

  30. They should hope they stay in jail because if they are on the outside somebody will come calling and the money owed will become a mute point. They would probably either kidnap then take them to Mexico or kill them all right then and there, probably something gruesome like beheading or some other method to use as a warning to others.
