Dysabel Munguia was a young girl the night of July 1, 2008, when her mother laid down beside her and instructed her to try to stay awake. But she couldn’t do it.
“When I woke up the next morning, we couldn’t find her,” Munguia, now 21, recalled at an FBI news conference here Monday, more than nine years after her mother was kidnapped and killed and her father was charged with the crime and became a fugitive. “Everything just felt like a nightmare, and I felt like I was to blame because I was supposed to stay up.”
She appeared alongside state and federal law enforcement agents as the FBI announced that it was adding 41-year-old Jesus Roberto Munguia to its “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list. His daughter wept as she asked the public for help finding him and remembered her mother, Sherryl Sacueza, who was 29 when she was killed.
